Okay, has the good Dr. Tinkle heard correctly that the new interim dean of the College of Education is a member of our esteemed Board of Trustees Tom Brady???? Gee, I wonder what he knows about Praxis exams and state requirements?? It's nice to know that A & S has company. I assume the next item of business will be to have an outside group come in to chat with the faculty. The good Dr. Tinkle has no idea whether the interim dean is wise, dumb or somewhere in between. What the Doctor does know is that the new appointee has been known to utter words like paradigm shift and we're no longer in a teaching world but a learning one. Dr. Tinkle has no idea what is actually meant by any of that. However, it is my opinion that such jargon will likely achieve very little for the College of Education.
