I didn't participate. Not because I agree with salary cuts or student fee raises or whatever, but because frankly, California is in a financial slump, we all have to do our part, and I feel lucky to have a job. I'm not sure where that leaves me.
I felt conflicted all day. I teach two online classes through the UCs, and I was feeling like I shouldn't respond to emails today, even. But the three emails I got were along the lines of "the bookstore is sold out of the textbooks, is it OK if I order the older edition online?" so I responded because I really want my students to get a good deal on the books and get them in a timely manner...hard to know what to do.
