from Reason: Janet Napolitano Is Wrong Pick to Lead University of California
Based on her tenure in the federal government, the DHS chief will be an advocate for more of everything that has turned the current university system into such a bureaucratic, scandal-plagued mess.
The Sacramento Bee noted that Napolitano’s selection “marks shift from academia to politics.” That’s almost right. UC has always been deeply involved in politics, but now it dispenses with the veneer of academic priorities.
If the system were looking for someone to maintain the status quo, it would have been better to at least have selected an accomplished educator. Napolitano is the worst of all worlds, which is bad news for taxpayers, students and the state of California.
apparently a UC alum... Paul Mulshine posts: "And with Napolitano running U.C., I think that system will be minting new Ron Paul supporters by the thousands just in time for Rand's run for president in 2016. Check the clip above of Ron appearing at Berkeley during his campaign for the 2012 GOP nomination." here: "The Ron Paul crowd and the left agree: No Janet Napolitano at the University of California"
