First batch of answers to JD Alexander's massive higher ed request is released
The Florida Board of Governors and state's 11 public universities have now answered the first two of 11 questions asked by Sen. JD Alexander a couple weeks ago -- he wanted a full accounting of all university and board revenues, expenditures, fees; and degree cost comparison by university and degree, in addition to job placement results and much more.
Alexander asked that those two be turned in this week. The other nine are due Jan. 2, right when the universities return to business after a break that begins on Thursday. So much for time off, right?
It's preparation for a presentation Alexander wants University chancellor Frank Brogan to give the Senate Budget Committee, which Alexander chairs, on Jan. 13.
We're combing through the mountain of documents now and will keep you posted if anything interesting crops up.
