THECB approves EDUC 1300 addition to the core

This decision was expected based on the response the SAC Faculty Senate received from Dr. Rex Peebles yesterday. While he understood the Senate’s concern about the college’s core curriculum change procedures not being followed by Chancellor Bruce Leslie, the THECB ultimately only follows their own rules.

    1. How? What pressure? This is a joke. Faculty have no recourse. The only way to stop this insanity is to oust the chancellor who ‘serves’ the board. The current structure of despotism/administration at the Alamo Colleges is such that the faculty, staff, and students have no practical voice in any matter of governance. Its a crying shame, but this and every other dictate from this clown will stand until the people of San Antonio vote out the entire Board of Trustees; they are all as selfish, guilty, and corrupt as Leslie and deserve no confidence or respect from the people of San Antonio. We deserve better than this.
