Coming on the M-I’s editorial pages this weekend

April 30, 2010

Here’s an advance look at what’s coming on the Messenger-Inquirer’s editorial pages this weekend.

Saturday on the editorial page

  • Recent discussions about increasing tuition rates at Kentucky’s public colleges and universities were under way when news came that a state program to help out the neediest of students had run out of money. The M-I editorial board weighs in on the continuing battle to fund higher education that often puts too large a burden on students.
  • Dr. Larry Durrence, the interim president at Owensboro Community & Technical College, writes about the need for the Kentucky General Assembly to properly fund the state’s community and technical colleges.

Sunday in Perspective

  • The Associated Press takes a look at how the recent law passed in Arizona has put that state at the center of the immigration debate.
  • The finalists for the position of president at Owensboro Community & Technical College are expected to be named next month, but the community still knows little about why the college’s last president, Paula Gastenveld, was removed. The M-I editorial board asks why the process to obtain documents that might help provide some insight into Gastenveld’s reassignment has moved so slow.
  • Syndicated columnists Paul Greenberg and Ruth Marcus offer their takes on the renewed debate about immigration enforcement brought about by the new Arizona law.
