University of Minnesota Regent Johnson is Confused about Higher Ed funding in Alabama and Ohio

Posted by: Bill Gleason under Society, Education and literacy, Continuing education, Government, Politics Updated: March 21, 2011 - 12:17 PM
"I was sitting here thinking,  I wonder if Alabama and Ohio are cutting their universities?...I would venture to say that Alabama and Ohio have not cut their state appropriations to their major universities....You know why? Because those fans won't let their legislators do it, " University of Minnesota Regent Johnson, March 11, 2011.

Au contraire...

 
"Alabama's fiscal year 2011 cuts to higher education led to 2010-11 tuition hikes that ranged from 8 percent to 23 percent, depending on the institution. "
"Other states cutting higher education operating funding and financial aid include Arkansas, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, and Wisconsin."
