YSU trustees back off earlier YEC decision



Published: Wed, March 31, 2010 @ 5:12 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN

The Youngstown State University Board of Trustees will allow Youngstown Early College to remain on campus during a three-year transition period that will see Eastern Gateway Community College take over YSU’s role in the program.

The trustees approved a transition plan today, essentially backing away from an earlier vote to terminate the university’s relationship with YEC as of June 30.

The early college program was launched six years ago as a joint project between YSU and the Youngstown city schools that allows selected high school students, in a campus setting, to take university courses while earning their high school diploma.

The trustees had cited cost as the primary reason for terminating YSU’s involvement in the program.

This is a much more responsible way to end YSU's involvement with the YEC. Let this be a lesson to the YSU trustees on how to act and govern like adults. The lack of consideration and thought given to the decision to terminate the program abruptly at the end of this school year without considering the students currently enrolled there was staggering.

You don't say?,..

See now I'm wondering where are all my critics now?

Surely there were a vast and abundant wealth of them a week or so ago. So let's hear from you now.

See something and or someone happened here and when their by fact history of dirty deeds were brought to light.

Clearly somebody at YSU payed attention and more sensibly sensed there came a dire need to try to mend some fences and straighten up and fly right.

That is before YSU became totally abandoned by all those with any sense, decency and responsible reaction as to where to pursue an education.

That is in order to vindicate even trying to support an outfit that's so historically been in need of a change of direction and manner of protocol.

Come on critics lets hear some more about who was so far off the mark in how you address and handle things like this,..

Great news. Kudos to YSU's trustees for revisiting this issue and finding a way to make this transition work.

Does anyone have or has anyone read any statistics on the number of YEC students that have gone on to college?
