Re: “Donald Trump picks fight with Carrier steelworkers' union

Hacker71909 - I don't believe a union boss could have made the concessions Trump and Pence made to keep those jobs.

Re: “New lottery scholarship rules hit black students hardest

I attended a regional higher education conference last spring. In one of the sessions, a group of higher ed researchers presented a study which shows that high school GPA is the best predictor of college success, better than test scores or any socioeconomic factors.

Re: “Lively debate at Arkansas State University over chancellor upheaval

I would say that Dr. Welch's problem in communicating with faculty is partly because he didn't really come up through the ranks as a faculty member so he doesn't truly understand the dynamic between college faculty members and the administration. One problem with college administration these days is that too many administrators spent little, if any, time as faculty members. I also notice that the new head of ADHE also mostly came up through administration and has spend very little time as a faculty member. You can't really understand the issues of higher education if you haven't spent considerable time in the classroom or the lab working with students.

Re: “Arkansas Health Department blasts medical marijuana

I would say the informal science of the usefulness of marijuana is fairly well established. When my wife was in nursing school in the late 70s, oncology patients were using it to alleviate the side effects of their chemotherapy.

Re: “Franklin Graham: And then there were tweets

Keep in mind that before he was with ADHE he worked at Ouachita Baptist University.
