In general, at colleges/universities that are predominantly white, most, if not all of the Board of Trustee Members and Administrators, the people that actually oversee the President's management of an academic institution's finances and ensure that the institution has the capacity to fulfill its stated mission, are white.
The Governor of New York is hoping to eliminate tenure. Oh, I know the newspapers refer to it as an overhaul but he is really hoping to give the school districts the power to terminate the employment of any teacher and he plans to begin this process by the smokescreen of some new teacher evaluation system.
Everything -- everything -- tells us that if our goal really is to put a great teacher in every classroom, reformsters, educational thought leaders, and rich unelected amateurs who somehow get to set education policy are going about it exactly backwards. The attacks on tenure are literally the exact opposite of what is needed.
