Gov. Nathan Deal plans to re-evaluate proposed funding cuts to the state’s technical colleges that, if not changed, could lead to layoffs, campus closures and the elimination of some programs.
At a time when the governor is urging colleges to produce more graduates, his original plan called for the Technical College System of Georgia to lose about $24 million next year from state funding used to teach students. The cut, which was included in his 2014 fiscal year budget proposal, reflects a drop in enrollment.
