Florida’s Governor, Rick Scott, recently proposed shifting tax dollars away from anthropology schools, and toward “degrees that have the best job prospects.” Although I detest the notion, as a business anthropologist, I regretfully admit to understanding his position. Gov. Scott’s a professional VC, anthropologists often have misleading job titles, and anthropology schools really do need to step up their career resource centers.
We shouldn't waste time hating Scott, we should just prove him wrong.

By the Powers That Be, leave commentary. This is happening in MY state, I'm going to visit MY congressmen about it, and I need all the input I can get from YOU.
