DISCUSSION: WILL OHIO GET ITS ACT TOGETHER FOR THE 88 COUNTIES INCLUDING STARK COUNTY?
There were about eight questions posed to Ohio Board of Regents (OBR) Chancellor Eric Fingerhut at the Stark State College of Technology this morning.
Because the chancellor was scheduled to be elsewhere later in the day, Fingerhut took one question after another without responding personally or via one the panel members. Fingerhut did have four of the five panelists respond in general to the questions posed by audience members but not in detail that each question merited.
Fingerhut implied that specific answers would be provided by the OBR and the panelist on a follow up basis in weeks to come.
Stark Countians should hope that Fingerhut and the OBR did a better job planning for its ten year Ohio plan for improving higher education than was done with the Stark State College of Technology (SSCT) presentation.
Question: If you would have been at the meeting (or were at the meeting); wouldn't you expect to have your question answered for having taking the trouble to attend the meeting?
