"If faculty choose the first furlough option then obviously they just go with the flow, blow any idealism about genuine teaching, and utilize the furloughs to ensurethemselves of three and four-day free weekends"
Actually: I would pick my furlough days to be on days when I am not scheduled to teach a class. This would minimize the impact on classroom education. On those days I would still work on my research and (of course) continue to advise my graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. The few colleagues withwhom I discussed this issue would do the same.
