Stirring up higher education trouble
There is dumb, and there is dumber. Southern University Board of Supervisors member Tony Clayton’s notion to bring Grambling State University into the Southern system as a cost-saving measure goes in the dumber category.
The trial balloon sank like a lead balloon. The proposal was not on the Southern board’s November agenda as Clayton had first promised. GSU, Clayton had said, isn’t a priority of the University of Louisiana system of which the school is a member. So folding it into the Southern system was going to make it a priority there?
