Louisiana college students plan to protest budget cuts at state Capitol April 15 - ELIZABETH CRISP, the Advocate

Louisiana college students are planning to demonstrate at the state Capitol on April 15 in response to the threat of deep cuts to higher education funding in the coming year. The state Legislature’s 2015 session begins April 13. With Louisiana facing a $1.6 billion funding shortfall, funding for colleges and universities could be cut by millions. LSU Board of Supervisors student member Brandon Crane said all supporters of higher education are urged to help with and join in the demonstration. “It is important to our system, all of our schools,” he said during a board meeting Friday. http://blogs.theadvocate.com/politicsblog/2015/03/20/louisiana-college-students-plan-capitol-protest/
