Budget cuts will hurt Miami Dade College and others - ARMANDO J. BUCELO, Jr., Miami Herald

The decision by state lawmakers to significantly cut funding for the Florida College System undoubtedly will have devastating repercussions for state colleges like Miami Dade College (MDC), the anchors of the communities they serve and often the only higher education resource for some of Florida’s most vulnerable residents. The approved budget slashes almost $30 million from Florida colleges’ operating budgets while providing almost $300 million in additional dollars to the State University System. MDC alone is at risk of losing up to $14 million. This represents the worst funding reduction to the college in 57 years.
