Little Miss Management at ASU

The Winston-Salem Journal editorializes against ASU Chancellor Ken Peacock this a.m. over "the noose incident" which has convulsed the campus for weeks. "It's past time for the school to make full disclosure," writes the Journal.

A student reporter for The Appalachian newspaper at ASU also delved into the story yesterday, coming up with an anonymous source that sheds more light than we've previously seen.

The bottomline appears to be this: Chancellor Peacock waffled and caved to pressure from the parents of a "disgruntled student," and the end result is that the standing and career of an exemplary professor, whose student ratings are consistently high, is imperiled.

Still unanswered: what "disciplinary" actions have been taken against the professor and on what basis?
