UMass students, faculty protest cuts - Yawu Miller, Bay State Banner

At the UMass Boston convocation Thursday, Massachusetts Education Secretary James Peyser elicited boos from faculty and student activists when he called for the state’s public colleges and universities to operate on a “new business model” and quoted industrialist Henry Ford. The activists gathered for a demonstration following the convocation and decried the school's $22 budget deficit and tuition increases that they say threaten to cut jobs and put public education out of reach for many of the state’s neediest students. http://baystatebanner.com/news/2016/sep/16/umass-students-faculty-protest-cuts/
