From the Top Down

Dec

I watched an interesting film on Wednesday, which you can find online here. It's called From the Top Down. The film exposes the mismanagement of Sussex University by its top administrators, and though it was made three years ago, the situation continues. Apart from department and individual names, everything is much the same. Highly-paid management incompetently do their jobs, and the result is huge deficits and projects going over budget. Sound familiar? The same sort of elitist backslapping that went on in the financial sector and led to the global recession is also going on at the top levels of our universities. These people must be stopped. They must be held accountable for their failures instead of passing the consequences on to students and staff.
