Won't get fooled again ... do you think ...

Being a bit of a The Who fan, some recent news from a destroyed further education college has reminded me of the lyrics from "Won't get fooled again". If you do not know the song, the YouTube video below,  is all that you need, a rock classic, always worth a listen.

The sadness is that with a set of 'rats' escaping from the ship they have jointly sunk. I am aware that by Christmas three high profile souls are exiting. I am sure that some would say 'good riddance', I cannot disagree. But, with the damage done, they seem to be exiting to leave others to pick up the pieces.

It does not take any great wit to realise, that in the nine years since the the college was in safe, capable hands. The entire remaining leadership and come and gone. With those long established in the old tradition having long left beforehand. Even if they were able to maintain any of the ideals.

The previous leadership held onto the college and helped it succeed over a considerably longer period. It takes time to ensure success, but less to bugger it all up. One hopes that the new wave will have the capacity; I do sincerely wish them the best. But, I hope that for the sake of staff and students that we won't get fooled again.
