Common Ground | The future of higher education is in doubt

The future of higher education in this state is in serious doubt, with the Legislature essentially abandoning the cause of an affordable system that provides opportunity for all.

One bright spot is the leadership of the Student Achievement Council, headed up by Gene Sharratt, the former head of the North Central Educational Service District.

Sharratt, who stopped by to chat recently, described the goal as developing a cohesive system of education rather than the piecemeal approach that previously existed when the agency was the Higher Education Coordinating Board.
