      As a UT parent, I'm gratified to see President Powers push back against the very vocal but small group of ideologues who want to hijack higher education in Texas. Given the value of UT and its graduates to Texas's competitiveness in the marketplace, UT is our state's best investment in the future.

      Great article! I'm extremely happy that the president of our university has the insight to understand how much more effective small classes are than large classes. Students are far more engaged, and therefore gain more knowledge.
