It just might work. . .

Over at PB, Jim Paine makes a proposal to ensure transparency, as the cant word has it, in academia:

Require all publicly-employed educators, tenured, full-time, part-time—all publicly-employed educators—to post on the internet, accessible to all:

1. Their curricula vitae (with only home address and phone numbers redacted/omitted);

2. The syllabuses of the various classes they teach; and

3. Their assigned reading lists for those classes.

Simple, easy, effective. It'll never happen.
