Scott Walker's War on the University of Wisconsin - Sumaia Masoom, Huffington Post

The plan calls for a number of controversial ideas; it removes state funding from the Wisconsin State Parks system, expands state vouchers for private schools (through the use of taxpayer money) while also cutting $150 per student in aid to public schools and implements drug screening for those receiving unemployment benefits and food stamps, just to name a few of the measures. By far the most damning for the state, however, is what the budget has in store for the University of Wisconsin System. The new budget also repeals the state law that establishes tenure for professors and instead leaves it up to the University system's Board of Regents--16 out of 18 of whom are appointed by the Governor--to decide if it is to be reinstated.
