I'm glad I'm out of school. It must suck to be on the receiving in to budget cuts. All politicians know how to do is see numbers on paper. This story presents us with the real world effects of slashing budgets, using the education system as the fall guy. From students to university faculty, the effects will be far reaching and long lasting for the state of Louisiana.

Education is the one place we should invest. I've got fresh graduates as hiring prospects who went into science. The Louisiana graduates are not nearly as prepared as those who went to better funded schools.

Who cares, right? You've got your LSU football money to worry about.
