This month's KPC Word on Campus

What do you think about the governor's proposed budget for UA? Explain.

I believe that a cut is a huge mistake. The fact is that our state is behind in education and we want to pull more money from it. I personally have benefitted from the grants and I would hope that other individuals have that same privilege.

I think that it can be considered a detriment to our education program because, as a student, obviously education is very important to me, and I feel that it’s a very important part of our state seeing as we only have one university program encompassed by the whole state. So cutting back even more on it to give people less degree options, it’s going to make people more likely to already go out of state as opposed to staying in state, keeping jobs in state and renewing our economy, because once they leave they typically don't come back.

I do not think we should be cutting funding on the education system when we already have so little funding.

A 41 percent cut could devastate our school. In a small town like this, there are only so many retail jobs. We need KBC for our workforce. This could really impact our small campus and town negatively.

I think the budget would ruin Homer’s schools and change the lives of students. I do not know where I would be without this college. It hurts me to even think about what would happen to the community. It gives no opportunity for the students here for the chance of higher education. I love KBC and disagree with this budget.

The current budget that the governor put out would harm the university because the cuts would be equivalent to cutting UAA and UAS. The UA system would not be able to support the students under this budget.

I think the governor doesn't realize the necessity of having a solid infrastructure for education in Alaska and that education needs to be accessible in order for the workforce to thrive.

It's a little unfortunate. As a person going into an education field, I don't think it’s a good idea to cut short the budget for education planning.
