The school that I worked as manager, unfortunately was monolithic and not very adaptable to change --despite what they say. Far too many old-hats running the administrative offices, bad politics in front of getting things done, and just general crankiness amongst the executive staff. It would be good to see the next generation of administrators have a go at it. I wouldn't recommend this position to anyone as it takes a very specific personality to put up with this.
