Pruitt not to blame
All of us share the frustration at not having adequate funding for our university system or for that matter other very important state programs.
Senate President Ken Pruitt must not be blamed for our funding difficulties. They can be traced to a range of decisions that precede the senator's term of office. In fact Sen. Pruitt has made a significant and sustained contribution to our advanced research initiatives in the state university system and has almost single-handedly found funding for Centers of Excellence, research commercialization and other 21st century programs to advance knowledge.
For that we should be grateful.
Mark B. Rosenberg, chancellor, State University System of Florida, Tallahassee
