North Carolina higher ed bill could prove disastrous for research - Tara García Mathewson, Education Dive

A bill proposed in North Carolina’s senate would require all public school professors to teach at least four courses per semester, potentially obliterating the research model at the state’s flagship universities. Rebecca Schuman at Slate expects this bill, if passed, to cause a serious brain drain in North Carolina as the state’s pre-eminent researchers look for public or private universities elsewhere that would fund their research. The worst part, Schuman writes, is that the bill could pass under the current political climate in the North Carolina General Assembly.
