Admission standards may rise to redirect unprepared students

Proposal one of many handed down from Gov.'s task force

One of the recommendations made by the Governor's Task Force on higher education could increase admission standards for future University of Arizona students in order to redirect some unqualified college students to community colleges.

The task force, including UA President Peter Likins, recommended the controversial redirection of students initiative in the hopes that it will lift Arizona above its current dropout rate. About half the students who enter one of the public universities as freshmen leave before completing a degree program at the university, the task force's report stated.

The recommendation states that the Arizona Board of Regents should consider the use of more rigorous admission standards if Gov. Jane Hull agrees with the recommendation.

The purpose of the initiative is to direct students to the right place to begin their higher education. The idea is based on the concept that if some of the students who do not complete degrees at the university level would be redirected to the community colleges, they would be more likely to complete a bachelor's degree.

Tomey left for the right reasons

The consensus became that his 14-year career should end if he failed to deliver a winning season and lost to our intra-state rivals again. He did lose, and, surprisingly, he resigned. Afterwards, the community was in shock. Contrary to some of the opinions that have been expressed since, Tomey did the right thing, and for the right reasons.
