KJZZ.org reports that after the steady and building backlash from the public, students, and alumni over the handling of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture's loss of accredidation (and long-term viability) by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, the Board of Directors has had a "change of heart." As stated in the KJZZ article:
"All 17 members of the foundation's board of trustees voted in favor of working toward independently incorporating the school, which is currently a division of the foundation. This move would mean the school could continue offering a master's degree program beyond 2017, because as an independent entity it would be in compliance with new accreditation rules set in 2012 by the Higher Learning Commission, the agency that accredits the Wright school and other colleges and universities."
This is heartening news and shows that the sides are finally listening to each other. Hopefully this will be the start of rebuilding trust and ensure that the education of future Organic Architects will continue. Read and listen to more here.
