The Orlando Sentinel examines how Rick Scott hasn't even come close to making good on his promise to build up our university system.   Several mentions of FSU and lack of funding here.

We have to call and write on behalf of FSU.  WE have to act to help Florida State...

Possibly the worst governor we've ever had.

He sees our state's universities as nothing more than job training centers. Glorified vo-tech schools. If he could have his way, all 10 SUS schools would be turned into diploma mills that only focus on getting people trained for jobs, quickly...jobs that don't exist in Florida right now.

He doesn't realize that universities are job creators in and of themselves. He sees them as liabilities on a balance sheet, not investments.

A state  the size of Florida should have two world-class universities RIGHT NOW, with plans to move two more into that class within 15 years. Those schools should be FSU and UF, with USF and UCF joining them. UM (even as a private school) would complete the state's higher-ed research initiative that would draw investment in to the state in areas like computer tech, medicine, engineering, etc.

Instead, he wants to de-fund our SUS and make them "accountable" or whatever.

FWIW, Rick Perry has the exact same delusion in Texas.

Some of the evaluation procedures for funding he forced upon research schools were absolutely ridiculous...but of this vein.
