It’s not a guest post here (though I always welcome such things); rather, it’s at the site eclecta blog, “GUEST POST: EMU faculty honor University President Susan Martin’s courage & leadership and ask for her help re: the EAA.” It’s a letter addressed to President Martin by EMU professor and friend of the site here Steve Wellinski, and I’d definitely encourage anyone and everyone who cares about the whole EAA mess to take a look at it. I’ll just quote from the opening paragraph because I think this is important:
On December 5th, the politically appointed Board of Regents intentionally placed our beloved Eastern Michigan University (EMU) in a merciless stranglehold. I need not remind you of the darkness that engulfed our community with their simpleminded choice. But, it is important to publicly recognize that a beacon of light did appear that afternoon – YOUR courageous step in recommending the severance of the inter-local agreement that establishes the Educational Achievement Authority (EAA).
Amen to that and to the other administrators who have joined the cause here to get EMU out the EAA.
