Our Weekly Reader for the Week of 4/21/2013

During a challenging week, there were two stories of special note. First, President Easter testified before the State Legislature on Friday morning and you should read everything he said. Pension reform, Easter stated, is “important to us being able to have a stable financial platform and to be able to recruit and retain faculty and staff.”

Second, in a noteworthy implementation of shared governance, the faculty at Amhest College rejected, by direct vote, participation in the MOOC EdX.
