Karl Marx. Critique of the Gotha Program. 1875
"The A.U.T.'s policy on staff-student relations should stand firmly on the principle of a community of scholars."
Harold Perkin. Key Profession: The History of the Association of University Teachers. 1969
"Real work is better than homework."
Eric Rabkin. See Eric S. Rabkin and Macklin Smith. Teaching Writing That Works: A Group Approach to Practical English. 1990
