Well UoPx does have more employees to student than ASU, that is true. The new systems are designed to handle more students per employee, that is true. The one item/thing/situation that UoPx management does not understand is, ASU students are not the same as UoPx's students. UoPx students mainly are from poor setting and progressed through underfunded K-12 schools. UoPx marketing targets minorities and single mothers. Both groups understand to better themselves they need more education. Both groups are basically not prepared to attend college. This is not a swipe at the students but more a result of the students' environment and schooling. So here we are. UoPX can either provide numerous remedial courses to help students or really improve course material and rigor and market to middle and upper economic levels students. From what I can determine, UoPx upper management has decided to have a lower employee to student ratio and does not take in account or cares about the type of student UoPx attracts . Therefore the only conclusion can be a downward spiral of layoffs followed by less student followed by layoffs...... you get the picture until the type of student is considered in the formula.
