UK Budget Cuts: Pathetic 48% Raise for President Capilouto

11439760685_148561e410_mOh the sorry state of Kentucky higher education! Even as the state’s institutions of higher learning reel from Governor Bevin’s budget cuts of 4.5%, Kentucky’s flagship university has managed to squeeze in a paltry reward for its President Eli Capilouto—he’ll have to settle for a paltry raise of $254,500. He is on record as struggling with the lack of funding

Liberals in Kentucky are understandably upset at the cuts and the significant damage this can cause to the state of the state’s education. The Lexington Herald-Leader, quoted UK French Literature professor Julie Human as saying “It’s really disheartening… It’s hard to see how he (Bevin) doesn’t value this kind of education…” while speaking of the Governor’s disdain for arts degrees.
