…. Remember, Parkland people, when we’d go to conferences and really appreciate how forward-thinking our college was compared to others? How jealous other people would be about assorted conditions?
OF course, we can’t be ahead of the game in every category… at this conference, it’s my turn to be in the “oh, I’m so jealous of your schools!” and how faculty and staff are expected to be leaders and given funding and support. I have a sinking feeling that, yes, this is the new Parkland College in other categories as wee. (No, I’m afraid it’s only partly “because of the budget problems.”)
THat said the colleges presenting have made *huge* progress in single years. People are embracing “open.” So… anything is possible!
