- We must accept a 17% budget cut for 2012.
- I can hire 6 new teachers, I need 17 just to scrape by in FY2012, as we are to be taking in many new students in order to have more income.
- There will be no pay raise for adjuncts.
- We can continue to have heat in the rooms, but we are supposed to be thinking of creative ways to save electricity, like getting rid of "unnecessary" computers.
- My administrative assistant, the only one who actually understood the numbers around this place was given the boot two days ago. I was not asked, but informed. They found some piece of dirt s/he was responsible for. Dismissal was immediate, although I find the charges to be trumped up.
Hope you all have a better holiday season. Oh, and I'm grateful for CM. There's nowhere else I can let off steam like this.
