Higher ed's outlook is bleakest in the South - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

Public colleges and universities in the South are among the fastest-shrinking institutions in the country, thanks to dramatic cuts in state appropriations, a lack of industrial development in several states, and high rates of poverty among communities throughout the south. Several of the states with the greatest cuts to higher education are in the South — with Louisiana, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia and Kentucky leading the pack.The steep cuts are, in many cases, compounded by an enrollment crisis, as the high rates of poverty facing many students in these states means a high reliance on financial aid and scholarships, which may not be available in the midst of cuts. http://www.educationdive.com/news/higher-eds-outlook-is-bleakest-in-the-south/425289/
