A Sad Day for Clark Atlanta University

Clark Atlanta University is set to close its engineering department. A predominantly black school, its services are very much in need for the black community.

The schools administration states that it is over the lack of money. Faculty members claim that the department brings in more than $2 million every year.

A lawsuit has been filed by professors and students to keep the department open.

I personally feel that any reduction in educational opportunities is a disgrace. America needs to stand behind its people. Especially as we find more and more jobs going overseas everyday.

If we don't educate our people, who will?

The rest of the world is buying up America. Closing an engineering department will only contribute to Americas inability to compete on a global scale.
