Column: Bureaucracy, red tape stymie greater opportunities for learning




The Daily Journal recently published an article about basketball coaching legend Bobby Knight.

The story was about coach Knight selling sports memorabilia to help fund his grandchildren’s education (which is a noble gesture).

The General’s recent visit reminded me of a story about Knight. This story inspired me to write this column and to reflect on the good old days that I spent at Franklin College.

I remember sitting in my office in the spring of 1987 just after Indiana University had won the college basketball national championship. One of my good friends from IU called me to share some recent events concerning Knight and Taiwan. Obviously, I was very interested, so he shared the story with me.
