There has been something bothering me for a while that I need to get off my chest.
There are two things that really bug me in independent and faith-based, private schools.
First, it really bugs me when I find a school that has a larger development staff than its admissions/enrollment department.
Isn’t it ironic that many schools have two to three times more staff in the development department and yet they only account for 5-10% of the operational budget?
Isn’t it ironic that the admissions department is primarily responsible for the revenue generation in a school through enrollment and tuition and yet their staff and resources are fewer in size than their fundraising counterparts?
