Scott Walker proposes big cut to University of Wisconsin System - David Taintor, MSNBC

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a potential 2016 GOP contender who never earned a college degree, has proposed a huge cut in funding for the University of Wisconsin system over the next two years. Walker’s office pitched the plan, which is part of the governor’s budget proposal, boasting it would give the university system more discretion over its finances. But it also carries a $300 million cut and a tuition freeze for the UW system over two years. That amounts to a 13% decrease of state funding for the university system, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/scott-walker-proposes-big-cut-university-wisconsin-system
