KU says budget cuts would be two times the budget of School of Nursing

February 11, 2009


In advance of Kansas University Chancellor's testimony to the Kansas Legislature this morning, the university issued this statement:

“The cuts the governor has recommended already amount to $22 million, which is more than twice the annual budget for our entire School of Nursing.

“Just to meet next year’s expected reductions, we have laid off employees, not filled more than 100 positions, delayed technology investments, and generally cut back on operating costs wherever possible. Additional deep cuts beyond what is proposed in the governor’s budget would cause significant harm and impact students.”

The answer is quite simple really - raise tuition to $500 a credit hour and all your problems will be solved.The evil middle class doesn't need that money and who cares if our children leave school with $160,000 in debt instead of the $80,000 they get now. That's their problem right?

How about salary reductions, as suggested by several comments on the Baker University lay-offs article?
