CASA: the house that casualisation built

Karina Luzia, Kate Bowles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We're hearing quite a bit at the moment about US higher education as a model for deregulation in Australia. We look at their leafy college towns and ivy-covered campuses, their deep philanthropic pockets, their Silicon Valley entrepreneurialism, their MOOCs and, above all, their higher education rankings, and ask: why can't we have what they're having? There are a couple of reasons why Australia should think twice about following America's lead. One is the $1.3 trillion owed by Americans in student loans, second only to home mortgages. The other is the state of the academic profession.
