Bredesen Should Hold University of Memphis and UTHSC Accountable

Last month, University of Memphis and UTHSC officials were upset by Governor Bredesen’s new higher education bill. Predictably, these school officials acted like an insolent teenager who was denied the car keys after his third speeding ticket. UM and UTHSC act as if they deserve the favor of the Governor. Why? Neither institution is exemplary. Face it UM is a commuter school at best and UTHSC is very marginal research institution that produces a few decent scholars and clinicians. It’s time that both of them are held accountable. If you wanted to be treated like a research institution then act like one. Stop whining and start increasing the rigor of your academic programs and become self reliant.
