SUNY "leaders" are seriously misguided in their attempts to convert the system into low-brow techie trade-schools for training uneducated industrial dociles; bored button-pushers. This idiotic go-fight-it-out strategy would predictably emphasize geographic advantages and ultimately destroy remote campuses and the small towns that depend on them. Instead, state "government" should re-institute a stock-transfer tax, attrit staff deadwood, get solvent and face its responsibilities.
