More Changes for W.Va. Higher Ed

West Virginia's Legislature has gone back and forth over how the state should manage its public colleges and universities during the last decade or so. The Associated Press reports on a Senate bill amended by the House that would again plunge into the topic.

The Higher Education Policy Commission "would get a new system for managing personnel, based on a three-year study of best practices elsewhere," the article said. "The measure also scales back some independence recently granted West Virginia and Marshall universities, the state’s two largest schools. Smaller schools would see more flexibility."
