KY House hears from Patton, Andrews on UPike situation
The House Education Committee in Frankfort continued their hearing Tuesday morning to hear arguments about whether UPike should become part of the state public university system. Last Tuesday, the committee heard from from UPike President Paul Patton about why UPike should be added to the state system. Now, Morehead State University President Dr. Wayne Andrews is trying to convince the committee that House Bill 260 is not a good idea. Many people agree that a public university in eastern Kentucky is a good idea, but the question remains how to fund it and if it is even financially possible right now.
