at UK and that women do not
rise through the academic and

a number of programs designed
to eliminate gender-based dis.

that Maggid‘s appointment is a

1 Harris pleased with first year at

Staff Writer


July 30 will mark the first anni.
versary that I. John Harris 111 has
been with UK as dean of the Col-
lege of Education.

His position is unique because
he is UK‘s first black dean.

But Harris, 4-1. does not see
that as a big deal.

“It's not much different than
being the dean of any son," said
Harris. who also was the first
black dean at Cleveland State
University before he came to UK.

What Harris does see as signifi-
cant is the Kentucky Education
Reform Act and the possibilities
it has created. Harris said the act
gives the state an opportunity to
show its “prowess“ in the field of

The importance of education
can‘t be underestimated. Harris
said. After economic considera-
tions. education is the major cri—
teria that corporations focus on
when they are looking for a state
in which to relocate. he said.

Not only do they want an edu-
cated population working for
them, but they also want to be in
an area where they can look out
for the best interests of their chil-
dren's and employees' educa-

“Fdiication in this state is so
important that I don't think that
any business organization. gov-
ernment, community or educa-
tional agency can go without
saying again and again that edu»
cation is the most important in—
dustry in the commonwealth of
Kentucky," Harris said.

“Everything is predicated on

cation will take in the reform pro»

And Harris has made other
changes, including the appoint—
ment of a strategic planning com-
mittee and an Increase in effons

Harris said he wants to make
the College of Education the U m-
versity‘s role model for demon-
strating the best teaching practic-
es on campus.

“As a college of education we
must be the academic epicenter
for demonstrating the best teach-
ing practices anywhere in the
University. If we can‘t do it, then
who can?

“That is our chosen mission r~
that is our discipline.“

Harris describes his stay at UK
as being “refreshing.“ He said he
was happy to “return to a pre»
miere institution."

He earned his master's degree
from the University of Michigan
and stayed there to complete a
doctorate in educational adminisv
tration and supervision in 1972.
Harris came to UK after teaching
stints at Penn State University,
Indiana University and Cleveland
State University.

Because UK is a Camegie I

school in company with other
prestigious universities such as

Patients, however, must re-

Services provided by Home-

as nursing care and home health

Darsie advises no change in open-records law

Associated Press


FRANKFORT —— UK’s legal
counsel cautioned a legislative
task force against revising the
state‘s open-records law because
this might create more inconven-
ience for public institutions.

There are “lots of nuts” who
use the law to seek information
from the school and “these peo-
ple can drive you absolutely cra-
zy," John Darsie said.

The media believe “open
equals good. That, in my view, is

not necessarily so" Darsie testi—
fied Thursday before the Task
Force On Open Meetings and
Open Records.

The task force was formed by
the 1990 General Assembly to
suggest changes in the law after
several bills to strengthen it, in-
cluding two backed by the Ken»
tucky Press Association, failed.

Darsie said several of the pro-
posed changes being considered
by the task force were not needed
because they would impose hard-
ships on public agencies like UK.
