Board Of Regents Delays Action On Admissions Standards

BATON ROUGE (AP) — The state Board of Regents on Monday again delayed actions on a proposal to adjust minimum admissions standards for state universities.

         The Advocate reports the board held a special meeting Monday after several members last week raised concerns about whether the state would be lowering standards and doing a disservice to education in the long run. But after discussing the tweaked proposal for an hour Monday, the board didn't have enough members to take a vote either way.

         The state higher education board is expected to again debate the proposal at its regular meeting on June 17.
