Ok, I do like some of Elvis Presley’s music; I thought this picture was somewhat appropriate for the fact that Clark Atlanta, a historically black college, has laid off a number of faculty members — tenured and non tenured alike. Education is often thought to be a safe place in today’s economy — yes this is true, unless you are in a lower tier private school or college. I suspect the issue at this historically black college is one of mismanagement and leadership. Many black colleges have become endangered species in recent years. This I find disturbing. I do have a future post on the future of black colleges.
