"...The essential for so many people in bureaucracies is that they want a divide between line and management employees and functions. No surprise; that's what they get paid more money for, not operating at maximum efficiency. This gets worse in service industries and is absolutely the worse in education. The people in education administration know deep down that they aren't truly necessary to the way educational institutions work; the basis of educational efficiency is the expertise of the faculty. But they can't admit that without undermining their place in education in the first place. So they try to introduce "modern business methods" that justify their positions and are, of course, largely antithetical to the educational process at all levels. "

I'd say the comment made me gald that I don't work in academia, except several decades in industry have made me very aware of the beam in my own eye...
