More than 80 education leaders from across Kentucky are expected to attend a statewide summit next week to learn more about "best practices" in scheduling classroom space. The issue has become increasingly important as energy costs have risen and budgets have grown tighter. The summit will be held in Versailles, at KCTCS offices. Dr. Tony Honeycutt, the Provost of Somerset Community College, spoke with WKU Public Radio about the story.
A statewide meeting that will focus on ways to increase college completion rates will draw educators and administrators from across Kentucky next week. Higher education faculty and staff from public and private institutions will meet in Louisville to explore ways to close achievement gaps.
University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto says looming budget cuts are a serious concern for higher education across Kentucky. He says a large percentage of college students in Kentucky are already borrowing money to attend classes, and he says higher tuition rates aren't the answer for funding problems. He spoke with Dan Modlin.
