My name is Hoaian. This is my 3rd year at UC Berkeley. For me, a June 30th lay-off means a severe drop in my quality of education. All of the best teachers that I’ve had at my time here at UC Berkeley have been lecturers. Unlike research professors who see their responsibility to teach their students as an afterthought, lecturers genuinely care about the education and growth of their students and actually commit time and energy to that. If a June 30th lay-off happens, I’m scared that I won’t receive the quality education that I’m at university to receive.
