    By Rick Kraft

    Have you ever found yourself in a situation you don’t want to be in? You look up and ask yourself the question, “How did I get here?” or “What am I doing here?” You wish you could push “Stop” and then “Rewind” and then put a different tape in?

    For much of its existence, it was known as Northern New Mexico Community College. Then, with the backing of a powerful state lawmaker, it morphed into Northern New Mexico College. Now it’s calling itself Northern New Mexico University.

    The metamorphosis of the Española-based institution from a two-year community college to a “university” is the epitome of what’s wrong with New Mexico’s higher education system. And, frankly, it’s time for state officials to step in and put an end to the insanity.
