Bulk of Kansas higher Education Cuts Coming from KU, K-State

Associated Press - March 2, 2016 12:59 pm

The Kansas Board of Regents says the bulk of Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s higher education cuts will come from the state’s two largest universities and their affiliated programs.

The board released figures Wednesday showing that the University of Kansas and its Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas, together will lose almost $7.2 million.

Kansas State University, its veterinary school and its agricultural extension research programs will lose $4.9 million.

Brownback on Tuesday imposed $17.2 million in cuts in the universities’ current budgets after state tax collections in February fell nearly $54 million short of expectations. The universities must make the cuts between now and June 30.

The regents said Wichita State University will lose $2.2 million; Pittsburg State, almost $1.1 million, Fort Hays State, $992,000 and Emporia State, almost $922,000.

I am starting to think that Sam Brownback has a plan to not educate Kansas youth. Hard telling what his thinking is behind his plan.
Haven’t we Kansans had enough of his mismanagement of our state ? I have !!

I hope all you “ignorant” Kansas residents that voted for that bozo Brownbuck are happy. You can bet the 350,000 small business owners and farmers who don’t pay “ANY” state income tax are laughing all the way to the bank. And yet middle income and low income Kansas families residents are footing the tax bill. Good luck with that…..LOL!! Glad I left this backwards state over 20 year ago!!!!!!!
