State chancellor warns of higher education problems

By

The person in charge of the state university system says higher education in Florida is in trouble because of ego and envy.  Chancellor Frank Brogan says that’s because all the schools in the state seem to be aspiring to be something else.  He says two year colleges are trying to become four year schools, big universities are fighting academic turf wars, and some satellite campuses want to become their own universities.  Brogan says it’s time for the governor boards of those institutions to say “stop”, because taxpayers can’t afford it.
