As the concept of retention and faculty performance become intertwined I'm reminded of the story about two boys. The eldest was nine; his brother was seven. They were typical boys and generally got the blame for everything. Their parents became exasperated and sent the eldest to the stern old preacher at the church down the street. The young lad was sitting there and the preached said, "Do you know where God is?" The lad didn't answer but shook a little. The preacher asked a second time only in more severe tones, "Do you know where God is?" The lad was now quite shaken and when the preacher asked a third time he got up and ran home. He went immediately to the bedroom grabbed his younger brother and said, "We have to get packed and out of here." The younger brother asked, "Why?" The older brother responded, "God's missing and they're going to blame us."
