Tea Party Legislature Targets University of North Carolina In Major Assault On Higher Learning - Igor Bobic, Huffington Post

If North Carolina is any indication, the nation's system of publicly funded higher education, as of now the envy of the world, will be threatened. The state's Republican-led legislature has launched an ideological drive against the state's publicly funded academic institution, the University of North Carolina system. In 2013, Gov. Pat McCrory (R) instructed the university's Board of Governors to identify some $15 million in budget cuts to university research centers -- a move in line with Pope's desire to slash the higher education budget. Pope was named the state's deputy budget director soon after the tea party seized control in the state.
