People are going to lose their jobs

If anyone at Missouri Southern says different, they are lying.

Programs are going to be cut. Teachers are going to be jettisoned — some of them popular –and this university will be forever changed.

If you like the traditional “academy” as RTV likes to call it, you are screwed. To you, the most dangerous person on campus is not Speck, Anglin, or even DDK. It is Jo Kroll. That woman is bent on making the university a profit-first institution. That is her charge.

And away we go.

Soon, the state lawmakers and their toadies will eliminate some good programs for numbers’ sake. And students will have to travel to get some programs. It will be interesting to see what our administrators try to keep.

Will established departments be forced more and more online? Will Missouri Southern become University of Phoenix or just an annex of another, bigger school?

What a shame.
