Screen Shot 2014-08-28 at 7.53.07 AMWhen the news that the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture would lose its accreditation in 2017, the reaction from most was one of surprise and sadness. The Frank Lloyd Foundation opted not to incorporate the school separately for fear of losing control and voted to forgo accreditation.

While Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation president and CEO, Sean Malone, stated in an interview that the Foundation was going to be looking for another accredited institution with whom to partner so they can jointly offer a professional degree, the School's own board of governors saw the situation differently.

On Wednesday, the architecture school’s board of governors released a statement saying it “respectfully disagrees with the decisions and actions” by the Foundation’s board to ostensibly shut the school down.

It's unknown where things go from here, but a civil war of words in the press will likely ramp-up tensions and acrimony. Catch up on this situation here, here, and here.
