Emporia has a great program, Kansas kids deserve access to the better program. That said, both Emporia and KU programs are moribund in traditional ultraconservative methods and neither ends up including cultural history or community in their reading and singing programs. No real songs just formula garbage, no literature just formula reading. Dig it Jane, too late Dick.

the university of kansas has some type of office on most of the other campuses in the state. also pitt state has a campus just up the road from ku's edwards campus. this is a stupid thing to argue about

Since ESU has a program at Kansas City Kansas CC, this seems like a waste of state education money. If they have enough professors to carry two programs only a few miles apart perhaps the payroll is too high!

Shouldn't the real issues lie around providing the best education for reasonable prices?

isn't Washburn supposed to be a good college for education studies? That is closer than JCCC, so wheres the issue there...........

Aren't some of you that think Emporia should do this are the same people that think we should have less regent universities?

I want to eat cake all day, but I don't want to gain any weight.

Many students cannot afford KU. Emporia is a good alternative.

I thought that all the schools in Kansas received money from the same pot. KU is not even on the top of the list of state schools to go to for most bachelor's degrees. Biology, Pre-Med, and History majors should go to Pittstate. Chemistry, education, and business majors should go to Emporia state. Most engineering majors should go to K-state.

Students looking at KU are looking at the highest cost in the state for education along with moving to one of the most expensive towns to live in the state. About the only thing KU is number one for is entitled frat boys and sorority girls. Let Emporia state have a teacher's program at JCCC. Not only is ESU pretty much the teacher's college of the state, but these new professionals would enter the workforce with much less debt.

KU, as an Alumnus, I am disappointed with your stance on this issue. You do not own the State of Kansas nor the word "Kansas". Emporia is a teacher's college. It stands to reason that they should offer a Teaching Program at JCCC, which, by the way, you do not own either. In fact, if ESU wanted to offer a Teaching Program in Lawrence, you really do not have the right to deny that, because, you do not own Lawrence either. Lets do what is best for the young people of Kansas, like giving them the most opportunities to succeed for their future. Shouldn't that be the goal of higher education?

why not? KU doesn't own the state.

I didn't vote no. I think they should be allowed too as long as the comunity college wants to work with them or any other school for that matter.

But, I am glad to see that over 80 percent marked yes so I am not displeased with the poll.

If I wanted to get a teaching degree in Kansas KU would be a 3rd or 4th choice. From what I've heard from so many people Emporia has a great program and of some I know who went to KU they said they wish they had gone to ESU or Washburn instead.
