One Comment armanidog A good read: “Historian: From segregation to COVID, Regents served governors, not students Since I came to the University of Georgia five years ago, I have been puzzled by how it works. Now that COVID has broken out a second time, I think I understand: This university is a branch of a political machine. My faculty colleagues teaching classes right now have as many as 20% of students with active COVID symptoms. But these professors cannot stream their in-person lectures to those COVID-positive students because this would make the class a “hybrid” class. And the chairs, deans, provosts, and president refuse to authorize any individual class to be hybrid, no matter how high COVID levels among students are. But if you ask each person along this chain of command why a professor cannot make Biology 1103 or History 2111 available to her students online, each will point up the chain declaring that their superiors all the way up to the University System of Georgia will not authorize it. This is perverse. When students applied to the University of Georgia or Georgia Tech or Georgia Southern or Georgia College, they probably did not realize that they were, in fact, applying to have the education controlled by an unknown entity of governor’s appointees that calls itself the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia (BORUSG). It is understood that most gave large donations to the current and previous governors or at least received their appointments as some kind of political favor. Gaining powerful seats on state boards like this is old-fashioned machine politics, as old as Georgia’s first constitution.” https://www.ajc.com/education/get-schooled-blog/historian-from-segregation-to-covid-regents-served-governors-not-students/XKDIUDIBHFBYLMWD3TV6OA26PY/ September 10, 2021 7:15 AM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
