Jindal is infamous for saying one thing and doing another.State universities not priority for legesAs the leges dole out pay raises for state employees, it appears that the only ones who are being omitted from the raises are the faculty and staff of the state colleges and universities.
We recently learned that the leges got an “auto-magic” pay raise and now we learned the lege staff got a raise effective Sept. 1.
Even NGOs (non-government organizations) are a higher priority. Community and technical colleges received $250 million in capital improvements from the leges during the 2013 session while the higher ed buildings are falling down.Maybe Bobby Jindal will privatize all the colleges and universities so that they can get funding as NGOs.
