Speaker plans study of college systems

Does Louisiana have too many colleges and universities? Does Louisiana have too many college and university supervisory boards? How do we know the right answer?

Speaker of the House Jim Tucker (R-New Orleans) says he wants to know the answers, and told Advocate reporter Jordan Blum that he plans to create a commission to "study the state’s higher education from technical colleges all the way up to universities and graduate school."

As Tucker told Blum for this article, “It’s an issue that’s been on my mind for a long time, because I think we can do better. Nothing is off the table.”
