Recovering Anupholsteraphobics Join Here!

A new kind of AA: "Anupholsteraphobics Anonymous?"


"... Like most of the teachers I ever encounter, I suffered from a common malady--what Stan Brimberg at the Bank Street School calls "Anupholsteraphobia": "the fear of not covering the material."
Anupholsteraphobia cannot be cured, but it can be controlled."
- From "Discipline and Publish: Faculty Work, Technology, and Accountability," Randy Bass, Georgetown University, Plenary address delivered at the AAHE Forum on Faculty Roles and Rewards, San Diego CA, January 22, 1999.

Where shall we hold the first meeting of Anupholsteraphobics Anonymous? Who has time to set the agenda? Decide what we will cover together?
