The Red Tape Bureaucracy!
Education, v133 n1 p155-157 Fall 2012
"The opera ain't over until the fat lady sings." So said Ralph Carpenter. Although he uttered these now famous words during a Texas Tech college basketball game in March of 1966, it is still applicable today to our modern universities where little, if anything, can be accomplished without first completing the proper paperwork. Within the entrails of every university exists a hidden bureaucracy. Within this bureaucracy exists the ever present and well known "paper trail." Working in tandem together they lay in wait to claim their victims as they erect obstacles that at times seem insurmountable.
