People, I once had a department chair who denied that, if we had a policy of giving above average (in percentage terms) raises to the lower paid faculty, in the long run everyone would be paid the same. Just flat out denied the math.
This same chair, upon the occasion of me complaining that my evaluation was above the departmental average while my raise was below, told me not to worry, that everyone had gotten a below average raise.
I am not making this up.
But I guess you can see where all this is leading.
Yes HRH HRC has proclaimed that she would close any school that was below average. Like it was obvious and I guess just be a few. Sadly, no one asked her how, in the long run, we were gonna fit all the kids in the US into one school (barring ties of course).
Mrs. Angus has suggested to me that maybe HRC was thinking globally, closing any US school below the global average.
I think Mrs. Angus has a bright future in politics.
ps. this same chair, in a public seminar, vehemently denied that (PQ)/Q = P. Vehemently.
