    I never thought our state funding was this bad

    I knew we would be far behind LSU, but Tech is SEVENTH, behind ULL, UNO, ULM, Southern, and SOUTHEASTERN!

    This whole HBCU issue is a crock. If Grambling is pissed off about funding, their first question should be why Southern gets so much more than they do by almost a factor of 2.

    Re: I never thought our state funding was this bad

    Here's a better use of that data;

    $-Students-$/students
    LSUA $8.6-1011-$8,506.43
    Southern NO $15.1-2314-$6,525.50
    ulm $52.3-8140-$6,425.06
    lsu $204.8-33,587-$6,097.60
    Grambling $29.2-5039-$5,794.80
    uno $65.1-11747-$5,541.84
    southern $55.8-10364-$5,384.02
    Bottom Half
    Tech $47.9-11710-$4,090.52
    Nicholls $30.1-7492-$4,017.62
    McNeese $32.2-8095-$3,977.76
    ull $67.7-17075-$3,964.86
    Northwest $34.5-9040-$3,816.37
    LSUS $14.7-4200-$3,500.00
    southeast $51.4-15880-$3,236.78

    Excluding lsua, there the differences between each level in the top 6 are not huge; 100.44, 327.46, 302.80, 252.96, 157.82 total difference of 1141.48; then the difference between 6 & 7 (southern & tech) 1293.50! Then everything runs pretty close again (853.75 total difference between bottom 7). So there are have's and have nots when you look at it this way

    If you fail out at Tech, you can always go teach at lsu

    Re: I never thought our state funding was this bad

    many of those schools need to shut down/become JUCOs. why in the world would Louisiana have more 4 year colleges than Florida when florida has a MUCH larger population?

    make some of those 4 year schools into 2 year JUCOs. once you finish there you can transfer to a 4 year school.

    if I could make a do-over I would have LSU be the southern flagship, and Tech be the northern flagship. have 1 school in Shreveport area, 1 in Alexandria, 1 in New Orleans, and 1 in Lafayette. the other schools can be JUCO's. I would make the LSU-S med school be part of Tech. I am fine with Grambling and Southern in addition to the other schools.

    Part of the factor is the number of students at schools. But don't forget that the schools that have mismanaged their money and were in danger of losing their accreditations were the ones that the legislature rewarded.

    Meanwhile Tech who has had a clean and commendable audit does not need more funding because they handle their money just fine. This is the SHAFT that we get.

    The problem in this world is that YOU are penalized for being better than everyone else.

    That's right. We do same thing with secondary ed, the poor-performing parishes get more for doing less...it's the Louisiana way!

    To remind people of another example, remember that Tech had a highly respected 4 year Nursing program that was getting rave reviews from the medical community. Grambling and NLU were not happy about that and had our program reduced to a 2 year associates. By the way, did you notice the story this past year that our Nursing program was HIGHLY recognized for excellence. Gee, wouldn't it be nice to expand on a program of excellence?

    Keep Tech where it is. Ruston just needs to form its own state, called Rustonia.

    If you go with Rustoleum, you could probably garner a corporate sponsor!
