Petitioning Governor Richard Scott

Stop Rick Scott's plan to hurt liberal arts and social science programs.


Rick Scott wants more young people to get college educations. However, he wants more students to get degrees in fields he thinks will get them jobs, such as science, technology, and mathematics. By shifting more funding away from liberal arts and social sciences and more towards what he considers to be the more important subjects, he will cripple programs such as psychology and anthropology. What Rick Scott does not seem to understand is that liberal arts subjects are actually very valuable to students in the long run, and that many successful and historically important people have majored in them. As citizens of this nation, we have a right to a quality education in whatever field we choose. Tell Rick Scott that he CAN NOT and WILL NOT decide for us what we will spend our lives learning and doing.
