Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

'We will have a significant liability'



Ammons Here's the latest Raleigh News & Observer story about the unauthorized satellite campus that was set up when James Ammons, now FAMU's president, was head of North Carolina Central University. The head of the N.C. university system said yesterday that NCCU will have to repay federal financial aid for the students who attended the satellite, since the program had never been approved by accreditors.

"We will have significant liability," said UNC system President Erskine Bowles. "How much, we do not know at this time." If this is new news to you, click here. To read Bowles' comments in more detail, click here.
