Cannon fodder

For everyone thinking that the Fine Arts faculty at the University of Canterbury has anything to do with education, this from today’s Press in Christchurch.

Head of the School of Fine Arts Desmond Rochfort said he was facing the reality of "horrendous" budget and staff cuts next year. The school had been told to find $85,000 in savings from its general operating budget or take on 10 more equivalent full-time students (EFTS) a year to make up costs", he said.
