Dear Fresno State President Joseph Castro and USU Chancellor Tim White,
I have no problem with Randa Jarrar's remarks concerning the late Mrs. Bush and the hate she has towards the Bush family. It is her right as a citizen of this nation to speak freely, no matter how asinine or appalling it maybe.
My issue is with the comment, "I work as a tenured professor. I make $100K a year doing that. I will never be fired."
Your pompous attitude and general disregard to the taxpayers who provide you with this generous salary and a forum to push your views on the youth of this nation instead of providing them with the tools as an educator to make there own thought provoking decisions is an example of what is wrong with higher education in this country.
Contrary to what you believe, you're a public employee that can be reprimanded and/or terminated for misconduct and lack of job performance at anytime.
There are countless professors across the UC and CSU system who kill it everyday in order to provide this state’s future with the education and unbiased knowledge it deserves, yet are not compensated at a fitting level while others continue to collect a paycheck in the name of “tenure” while providing nothing of substance to the student.
Fresno State President Joseph Castro and CSU Chancellor Timothy White, I ask as one of the millions of tax payers in this state to make an example of Randa Jarrar and others like her in public education. Our future depends on it. God Bless and please share.
