Thereafter, and not until higher education began to express an interest in its formation and promotion, he had a minimal relationship with KET organizers. In general, Doran provides a deeper explanation for the many problems and challenges that KET faced during its formative years. Doran also comments on State Schools' responses through time and, when it came to providing deliverables to both its advocates and audience, KET shortfalls .
