"This is not a group of "leaders" who give a rat for the students"
What evidence do you have this is true?
"This is political agenda for profit"
Specifically who is going to profit and how?
Sounds like Sugarland is ready for a fight?
Without interaction, the Facebook site is nothing more than a propaganda tool of the local leadership.
Align yourselves with Sugarland's leadership, Victoria!
In the last four months have you heard any of "Victoria's leaders" say anything about the students and learning?
No, but I didn't attend any of the meeting this education commision had. How many did you attend? What did they talk about there?
The Crossraods Comission on Education was believe to be created in combating the High Drop Rate at V.I.S.D. The Membership of this commission all of them are friends of State Rep Morrison and from Victoria County and not from the wider Crossraods area. Second thing is the commission’s focus on UHV. Why when there was a HIGH DROP OUT RATE in the p[ublic school system ????? Third Since 2005, Geanie Morrison’s campiagn have been benifited from funding from Texas A&M. Didn’t Victoria A&M club gave Mrs. Morrison an award in 2004 for the HB3015? Which University benfited more withHB 3015. I got more, but I’ll rest my rest for the time being.
This is not about social interaction. This move is about power, greed and showing the UH Regents who is the real boss.
Why doesn't the Facebook site allow comments? I thought FB was a social INTERACTION site. What are they afraid of?
A more telling aspect about Higher Education in Texas is Paul Burka's story in the April 2011 Texas Monthly issue. Do we really want to align Victoria with TAM?
I think you should be able to find out how much was spent on this.
I know that there is no one university in the State of Texas that will change/improve the economic issues of any town in this State. Stop depending on a university to take care of those problems - the job of any university is to "EDUCATE" people. It's up to the town to try to "KEEP" students after they graduate by having jobs, etc. available. Bill needs to be specific - pretty general -
TAMU, on the other hand, has a history of being a good partner with smaller communities." per Dale Fowler
I would like to see some figures on this. How much did TAMU spend in the new town? How many new jobs were created? How many new businesses were opened? How much growth was seen?
I looked at the site - nothing new!
