Inside Higher Ed reports: "Leaky ceilings, dim lighting, roaches, mold. Those images don't evoke the ideals of higher education, but for the growing number of professors posting pictures of their rooms and offices to the social media feed called Classrooms of Shame, they're an everyday reality." I think it would be interesting to see what international contributions to this feed would look like (Tacloban classroom of shame: "today we don't have a roof..."). And, for full parody value, a version focused on institutions like Harvard and Cambridge ("Lunchroom of shame: the champagne serbet was made from a Roederer Cristal Brut 1999, not 2000 - I don't know how we can stand for this! Photo: Hotel Club).
