Another Governor Wants A 10k Bachelors Degree

Gov. Rick Scott’s Challenge to State Colleges: $10,000 Bachelor’s Degrees
Calling for better value and results in higher education, Governor Rick Scott challenged Florida’s state colleges to offer $10,000 bachelor’s degrees. Scott’s pitch came without an offer of additional state funding. Instead, he told colleges to “find innovative ways” to bring down the price. Some college leaders said each campus likely will fashion its own $10,000 degrees in workforce-oriented fields. (Tampa Bay Times, 11/27/12)
