My article (“Pass, Fail,” April) makes some problematic claims that were overlooked in the editing process. On reflection, the critique of Meds as scholars is too narrow — my concern is not with one particular degree but with the fact that the university is filling up with many types of unqualified instructors. As well, my criticism of the University of Toronto vice-president’s remarks on The Sunday Report about “just-in-time” learning fails to indicate how questionable her appropriation of such business-speak is for institutions of higher learning. These matters are addressed in the onlineversion.
