    Calbright was an interesting concept that I believe had a tremendous amount of potential. Although it can certainly be argued that it is entirely redundant. That being said... appears it is already in trouble.

    • President put on Administrative Leave and Abruptly Resigns - not a good indication.
    • No bid $500k contract to a politically individual - not a good indication.
    • No board approval, and they abstained from a ratifying vote - not a good indication.
    • No full-time faculty hired - not a good indication.

    “We continue to question the value of Calbright,” the Faculty Association of California Community Colleges said Monday in a statement responding to Hiles’ resignation. “Unfortunately, new leadership alone will not fix this inherently flawed use of state resources.”
