A controversial new survey from CareerCast.com insists college professors have the least stressful job in America.
The ranking, reported on with endorsement by Forbes magazine, upset a lot of people in higher education, prompting a Twitter hashtag #RealForbesProfessors to list the challenges of their profession.
Responding to the criticism, Forbes writer Susan Adams issued a lengthy addendum highlighting commenters' outraged responses, and the magazine published a rebuttal on its own website from contributor David Kroll who said "I was extremely surprised and, frankly, disappointed that Adams would write such a misguided article."
Kroll joined HuffPost Live along with other professors and host Marc Lamont Hill (who teaches at Columbia University) for a discussion on it.
