Regarding the Jan. 9 news article “Consultants will study UNC before Spellings starts work”: “A $1.1 million privately funded study by a management consulting firm will analyze the UNC system’s administrative operation before UNC President-elect Margaret Spellings arrives in North Carolina.” Anonymously funded. Really? What a coward. Follow the money.
Who has what to gain from this “study” from a well-known management consulting group that is devoted to analyzing business strategy? Since when is the “university of the people” all about business? Is that what the people of North Carolina want? To transform the oldest public university in the country into the University of Phoenix?
What a sad day. The only hope to save the UNC system from this Rovian/Bush bot imported from Texas is to get out and vote in November and send the Republicans responsible for hiring Spellings packing.
