So that was a couple of years ago at Tennessee State, and as is customary with schools that graduate not much over ten percent of their students in four years, the place since then has sort of kept limping along, barely getting re-accredited in time for more incompetence.

Now the school has devolved into farce, with the head of the faculty senate led away in handcuffs from a meeting about allegations (apparently now disproved) that the administration went into the computer system and changed (improved) student grades. The meeting was also about the results of a faculty survey having to do with whether to dismiss the head of the senate.

But the details are unimportant. These are the sorts of deeply humiliating events which occur in dropout factories.
