BOARD OF REGENTS MAKES WISE UNI PRESIDENT CHOICE

12-7-16

Greetings, Regent Mullholland, Other Regents and all—

Congratulations!! 

Once again the Regents selected the best university president candidate!  He is Mark Nook.  Iowalive net workers overwhelmingly found Nook the best candidate in the table below.  His teaching experience should compel him to vacate existing, failed memorization teaching methods etc. and adopt concepts methods that are even better than those successfully used in teaching ‘Old Math and Phonics’.  Perhaps he will prepare a comparable chart to show his expectations for teachers trained at UNI under his watch!  He can show UI and ISU how it’s done!!! 

CONCEPTS TEACHING METHODS ARE FAR SUPERIOR TO MEMORIZATION METHODS

About sixty years ago educators made ‘memorization’ changes to the public education system that had the same sinking effect as the disastrous Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the U.S.S. Arizona! 

Anyone Claiming to Have Better Numbers is Asked to Provide Them

Sincerely,

 UNI PRESIDENT CHOICE IS OBVIOUS

12-1-16

Greetings, Regent Mullholland, Other Regents, UNI President Search Committee (on B:CC) and all—

The following table, has now been updated since the final, and only the third, UNI president candidate has been named.  The Search Committee gave NO reason for eliminating a fourth or other candidates.  But that is of no significance as by far the best candidate remains.

The performance numbers in the table eliminate the need for words describing a candidate’s ‘dids’, that are dwarfed by a candidate’s commitment and numbers for expected UNI performance improvements.  

It would be most helpful if the Search Committee would  provide comparable numbers, to show others on what the heck they based their selection.  People want, and need to know, what the Search Committee expects the selected candidate to IMPROVE at UN—When, How and at What Cost!  These numbers give the status quo advocates, and the Board of Regents, something useful to think and talk about!!

NUMBERS SHOW DR. MARK NOOK, FROM MONTANA STATE, IS BY FAR THE BEST UNI PRESIDENT CANDIDATE
