YOUR EDITORIAL supporting the drive to unionize among adjunct faculty at Northeastern misrepresents the views of a majority of tenured facility (“For Northeastern adjuncts, organizing is a no brainer,” April 21).

Schools should make it possible for committed faculty to find a real career in teaching, instead of taking advantage of their idealism and hope.
