HIGHER ED
From Page 1A
the necessary training to enter new
job fields. He said the lack of exper-
tise - and the resulting unemploy-
ment - in the United States is a
consequence of a failed education
system that only guarantees educa-
tion through 12th grade.
Huckabeesaid ahighschooldiplo-
ma is no longer enough to ensure
long-lasting job security for work-
ingAmericans. He said today's more
technologically advanced industries
require more specialized training.
"We're now looking at a minimum
of K-14, not the idea of K-12 as a bare
minimum to be prepared for the job
market today," Huckabee said.
After a speech in Grand Rap-
ids, Huckabee told members of the
press that while higher education
was mostly a state issue, he would
work to find ways to help stu-
dents pay for their education after
they graduate from high school.
"It is in our best interest as a coun-
try to ensure that people continue to
achieve levels of education," Hucka-
bee said. "I don't necessarily sub-

scribe to the idea that we ought to
just give itto people for free. I think
that people perform better when
they work for it."
Huckabee said students strug-
gling to afford the rising costs of
college should look to federally-
sponsored service scholarships. He
said military and AmeriCorps pro-
grams, which help students to repay
loans, could curtail the rising debt
college graduates face.
He praised service scholarships
because he said students would
have to earn their tuition and would
in turn be rewarded for their hard
work, but didn't say whether he
would provide additional funding
to these pre-existing programs.
JOHN MCCAIN
At his many campaign stops in
Michigan, Republican presidential
candidate John McCain told Michi-
gan residents that higher education,
specifically vocational training, is
essential to solving the economic
crisis in Michigan.
While crowds in Livonia booed
when McCain, a senator from Ari-
zona, said automotive jobs have left
the state won't be returning, they
nodded in approval when he voiced

his plans to provide displaced work-
ers with training in new fields.
McCain said he'd create a fed-
eral program to pay for Americans
to attend community colleges and
receive vocational training so they
could better compete for jobs in
technological fields.
"We must be a nation committed
to competitiveness and opportu-
nity," McCain's campaign website
says. "We must fight for the ability
of all students to have access to any
school of demonstrated excellence."
Kinesiology senior Allison Sch-
neider, chair of the University's
chapter of Students for McCain,
said McCain's plan is crucial for an
economic comeback in Michigan.
"I think expanding the opportu-
nities for education, like his plan to
use community colleges is a great
option," Schneider said.
MITT ROMNEY
Republican presidential candi-
date and Mitt Romney told crowds
Friday in Grand Rapids he would
provide more opportunities for
students to receive post-secondary
degrees.
Romney, who has promised to
increase investment in the research

and manufacturing fields, said he
would use federal resources to
improve education.
"I want to invest in better educa-
tion, in higher education," Romney
said, without specifying particular
strategies.
LSAsenior Amy Drumm, chair of
the University's chapter of Students
for Romney, said Romney would
expand the program he estab-
lished as governor of Massachu-
setts which provided full-tuition
scholarships to high achieving high
school seniors.
"He would give full-ride scholar-
ships to state and public universities
for students who tried very hard in
highschooland succeeded,"Drumm
said. "Students with high GPAs, and
participated in community events
will be rewarded."
More than 30,000 high school
seniors received scholarships to
attend state universities in Massachu-
setts in the past two years, according
to Romney's campaignwebsite.
Romney's campaign website says
he will work to improve math and
science education in charter schools
and "public-private partnerships"
to prepare high school students for
training after they graduate.

Publicity doesn't always
mean research funding

RESEARCH
From Page 1A
As one of the leading research
institutions in the world, the Uni-
versity is routinely among the
top rankings in various fields of
research.
But the University's prestige
often puts increased pressure on
researchers.
"U of M has a very strong repu-
tation for inventions and discover-
ies," Kotov said. "Straight away,
there was a lot of pressure on me
and the team to come up with a
very essential, very important sci-
entific finding."
But Marvin Parnes, associate
vice president of research at the
University, said investors under-
stand researchers can't always
churn out front-page discoveries.
He said research that provides an
improvement on an existing idea

can be considered groundbreak-
ing, too.
Breakthroughs are often the
end stage of a long and tedious
process, he said, pointing out that
the research that led to one of the
University's most successfulinven-
tions - a nasally administered flu
vaccine - took 40 years.
Both Parnes and Kotov said
there was an understanding
betweenscientists and administra-
tors that nothing is definite when
starting a new research project.
"Often, the federal agencies
recognize that science isn't linear,
that you may find something you
didn't expect," Parnes said.
What may be groundbreak-
ing to scientists in a specific field
may never reach the mainstream
media. Parnes said the University
isn't dependent on mainstream
publicity because it's well estab-
lished asa research institution.
Still, Parnes said, "it's always
nice to get good publicity."
