UF liberal arts professors and students question Governor Rick Scott’s higher education reform agenda

By

Among his higher education reform initiatives, Governor Rick Scott is calling for state universities to prioritize funding for engineering and math over certain majors he claims do not directly lead to good jobs and economic growth if those alums stay in Florida.  Governor Scott cited anthropology majors in describing his new agenda to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.  At UF, which has a large anthropology program, students and professors say this particular analysis, and this proposed approach to higher education funding, is flawed.  Reported by Katie Gillen, WUFT-TV News.
