Higher Education's Disinvestment in Faculty

From Mark Perry's Carpe Diem blog:
The chart above is based on data in the American Federation of Teachers study "The State of the Higher Education Workforce 1997-2007," released in May 2009, and college enrollment data available here. The report presents a troubling picture of the higher education teaching profession because colleges and universities have been "disinvesting" in full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty while at the same time "investing" in more and more administrators, and hiring more and more part-time faculty.
