College Cost and Administrative Bloat – Maggie’s Farm

Overall, the industry has added an average of 87 administrative positions per day, a rate has scarcely slowed since the economic downturn, despite tuition increases. Even more surprising, academic institutions have added more administrative employees despite part-time faculty taking on more teaching duties than full-time professors.

Why? Who are these people and what do they do all day?

They administer.  Which means they make rules.

Just as legislators legislate.  Which means they make laws.

And that, in a nutshell, is why we now live in a culture strangling to death in a web of rules and laws.  Because they think that is what they are being paid to do.

That in the end they will destroy the very society that supports them never crosses their tiny, saurian minds.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Note the relationship to the idea that college students are not really adults. If you have a campus full of relatively unsupervised children, of course you need tons of rules and plenty of day care attendants administrators to ensure those rules are being obeyed.
