Plenty of discussion has taken place in the past 15 months about the state of public education in West Virginia, sparked by an audit of the education system. Most has centered on improving student achievement, long lagging that in most other states.
I am profoundly distressed with the present situation facing Marshall University in this our winter of discontent. I decided, therefore, to present a proposition for consideration by the Marshall faculty and enjoin the reader to reserve judgment on the proposal until it has been fully explained.
