Ensure affordable education without raising taxes or tuition.
Guarantee that COD provides education relevant to the community.
Maintain accountability to local community, students and faculty by listening and finding creative and comprehensive solutions.
Legal battles should be the last option. We should treat outside interests with respect long before legal actions are pursued.
I come from a long line of great teachers. My Great Grandmother, my Grandmother, and my Mother were all teachers. With this perspective, I believe we must make it completely clear that we respect and value the contributions of the faculty. More avenues for dialog should be found to enhance joint problem-solving.
Invest in courses that are aimed directly at increasing the skills needed by local employers. This can be done by continuous communication with students, business, and community leaders.
Currently, I see no need to increase taxes because COD has a strong cash position as well as strong cash flow.
Speaking English is essential to improving both an individual's life and the local economy. COD is uniquely positioned to teach English to the non-English speaking segments of our population.Copyright © 2014 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
