Question of the Weekend: Higher Ed Reform

This week, the Tennessee General Assembly examined, at the Governor's behest, the condition of higher education in Tennessee. Legislators wrapped up the special session on education by passing a bill that would make it easier for students inside our State to transfer credits from one State university to another. In addition, the finished legislation will give incentives to those universities which actually help students to graduate and finish their college education.

Representative Stacey Campfield (R-Knoxville), one of the General Assembly's most outspoken conservatives, said on his highly publicized blog this week that "this bill actually does something," implying that the results from the higher education reform which passed will be easier to guage than last week's K-12 reform law.

The debate over higher education in Tennessee is the topic for our question of the weekend for reader comment, discussion, and debate.
