More than a flesh wound ...

It seems to be a torrid time for our local education federation, already it is beginning to take on the personality of an evil empire portrayed in a low budget science fiction television series. Avoiding an elaboration of the cliche as they are clearly better at doing this than I, the saga described with eloquence here. Takes on a new twist this week.

From a source that cannot be named, one discovers that the federation has decided to appoint a principal of the college, elevating the chief executive to uberfurher of the organisation entire. Whilst at the same time, dealing two interesting punches to staff morale of the college, allegedly ...
  • Reshaping the current eleven departments into five faculties, where it has been reported that a level of middle management have been given notice.
  • Adding a new clause to the teaching contract of all teaching staff, where it has been reported that all staff can now teach up to 'hours decided' for the college. Therefore setting no upper limit on what an individual can deliver (giving them little time for lesson preparation, admin, student pastoral care, keeping their skills current etc).
I am sure, this will evolve rapidly over the next few weeks, I can see that September will dawn an interesting new era for this organisation. It may of been the foundation of the federation, but it is no longer the needed bedrock.
