Kentucky’s higher education budget cuts remain among highest in the country - JOE SONKA, Insider Louisville

A new report by the national think tank Center for Budget and Policy Priorities shows that while many states are beginning to restore their steep cuts to higher education spending since the Great Recession, Kentucky’s cuts remain among the highest in the country and it is one of only three states to continue such cuts over each of the past two years. Adjusting for inflation, Kentucky has cut higher education appropriations per student by 32 percent since 2008, nearly double the national average. This amounts to the sixth-highest cut in the country over this period, rising from 11th in the CBPP report last year. These cuts amount to $2,771 per student, which ranks the eight-highest among all states.
