California Budget Follies

California is doing whatever it can to mismanage its way to disaster.  Here is a graphic showing how the California State University system keeps piling on administrators, while expecting the staff and faculty to take on more responsibilities.  In so far as teaching is concerned, the model is becoming more like No Child Left Behind — more and more silly ways to generate numbers that have nothing to do with education.
With all the superficial complaints about education, virtually nobody in authority takes issue with the managerial bloat.  Anyway, enjoy the graphic.

    having recently read “The Puritan Gift” by Ken and Will Hopper, i am not suprised by the administrative bloat.
    of course it is necessary to employ all those mba graduates somewhere.
