Ark. official in line for La. higher ed job

Posted By on Mon, Feb 21, 2011 at 6:12 AM

Jim Purcell, head of the Arkansas Department of Higher Education, is expected to be offered the job las Louisiana's higher education commissioner this week. Times Picayune reports.

If it transpires, your guess is as good as mine on his successor. Purcell issued some straight talk now and again that didn't always sit well with individual college leaders. Arkansas could use a unified higher education regulatory structure, but none of the individual campuses want it, preferring to free-lance for advantage at the legislature. This is particularly useful for the powerful University of Arkansas.
