The same guy who told a crowd at one of his numerous out-of-state fundraisers that, "The left hasn’t had a new idea on education since the invention of the chalkboard,” has a bold idea that shortchanges higher education:
And what is Gov. Jindal’s new idea for Louisiana education? Cutting $219
million from Louisiana’s colleges and universities. While Governors Mike Foster
and Kathleen Blanco made higher education a priority for moving Louisiana
forward, Gov. Jindal will be the first Louisiana governor in more than a decade
to make severe cuts to education. University presidents and faculty across
Louisiana have warned that Gov. Jindal’s budget cuts would have a crippling
effect on higher education.
