MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The State Board of Education is split over what should be required of the next chancellor for the two-year college system.
The board had a long discussion at its work session Thursday after a proposal that requirements start at a Bachelor's degree and five years of executive experience.
Several members said the chancellor should have at least a Master's degree and more years of experience.
Randy McKinney of Gulf Shores supports the minimal requirements
because he said the chancellor's position needs someone with more
skills than just academics.
The department posted a request for proposal on its Web site Thursday to find a firm to help it in the national search for Bradley Byrne's replacement as leader of the system.
