Daniels to Lead Purdue?

Gov. Mitch Daniels
Rumors are flying and media sources are confirming that Governor Mitch Daniels will take the helm of Purdue University.

Sources tell RTV 6 that an announcement can be expected as early as Thursday.  Daniels is expected to serve out his term as Governor, according to Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman.

It's quite a quizzical choice for a man who's done so much to tear down our state's public universities and institutions.  He's watched as the state legislature has dictated to these higher learning institutions what they can charge for tuition and as their budgets have been slashed by the million.  All of that doesn't even mention what his education policies have done to local public schools.

But, bully for Purdue.  Congratulations to the Governor.

I don't think it's odd at all, I think it's a brilliant plan to reform universities. You do have to realize who is the Higher Ed Commish, a crony, right? Reforming Purdue will isolate IU as the Big Spender and then let the legislature have its way. Divide and conquer as Scott Walker is prone to say!
