"Just one college should cut its administrative staff in half and hire an army of good teachers and see what 10 years of such an experiment might yield."

An experiment worth trying, proposed by Douglas Anderson, a philosopher at Southern Illinois.

  1. One of the reasons the administrative staff at universities is getting so big is because faculty and teachers refuse to do the administrative work required of them. In order to keep accreditation, state and grant funding, and other important university elements this administrative work is required. Complaining about the size of the administrative staff at universities is like decrying "big government", without addressing the root causes of why it is getting so big.
