From the Southern Arizona News-Examiner:
Responsibility for the recent turmoil at Pima Community College involving the behavior of retired former Chancellor Roy Flores and the PCC Board of Governors is nowhere as obvious as the local media would have us believe. . . .
That Flores behavior was abominable is obvious but it hardly reached the level of the Bataan Death March. None of you are exactly Rosa Parks – or Martha McSally.
But that all ducks the REAL issue – the admission changes. There has been a concentrated effort to repeal that attempt to make PCC a little more like a real college instead of a social program from the beginning. Nobody would’ve cared about the other relatively Mickey Mouse stuff except for that one. And please note that it was at the top of the list of transgressions from the Commission’s investigators.
We’re not sure it’s a compelling argument–trivial sexual harassment charges (and other “Mickey Mouse stuff”) being a cover to force relaxed admissions standards at PCC–but, like most conspiracy theories, it has a certain appeal to those who always yearn for a story behind the story.Follow @ivorytowernews
