The Herald-Leader editorializes on the hyperbolic bluff by President Michael McCall of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.
McCall warned that the council's action, on top of a 6 percent cut in state funding, would produce a revenue crisis and require reducing enrollment by 6,000 students……
The budget for KCTCS central administration is as large as that of the largest community college. There have to be efficiencies there that can be achieved without barring access to instruction.
I think what the Herald-Leader is trying to say, in a somewhat diplomatic way, is that a guy who has a salary and benefit package of $610,000 is threatening to screw the students he is supposed to be educating because he is not getting the pet projects he wants.
This is a perfect example of reason number three for the problems in Higher Education in Kentucky.
