Brooklyn College’s Prof. David Arnow outlines many of the problems with the CUNY First system, soon to be implemented at the GC. Some of the scarier implications apparently include the fact that CUNY Central pursued CUNY in order to gain “absolute control over all college activity, including curriculum. For example, whoever controls the catalog, the bulletin, the transcripts and the apparatus in general effectively controls curriculum. CUNYfirst will be part of the arsenal by which CUNY Central shoves Pathways down our throat. CUNY Central also sought the knowledge of, and therefore access to, any discretionary funds that the colleges may have.” Read more of David Arnow’s piece in the May 2013 PSC Clarion.
