An interesting read from Professor Stephen Hutchings and Professor Yaron Matras of the University of Manchester
Coverage of the cuts has been outlined in an article in the ‘Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung’ 28.06.2017. The article, written by Christian Goeschel, describes the moment more than 900 employees of UoM received the news by email that 171 jobs would be at risk as a result of ‘restructuring’. The article expresses disdain for UoM’s decision and shows that they believe the cuts are unnecessary. In the final line Goeschel says “the new higher education model makes British universities into companies, where lecturers are degraded to service personnel and made to follow the instructions of managers” .
