Submission + - University of Florida Cuts Computer Science, Ups Athletic Budget (forbes.com) 1

scubamage writes: "In an incredulous move, the University of Florida has cut its Computer Science and Engineering Department in an effort to save 1.7 million dollars a year. Yet at the same time, it has increased funding to its athletics department by more than 2 million dollars a year. The move has spurred criticism across the industry and academia, and caused the launch of a "Save the CS Department" website, and incited student protests. Ironically, all of this seems to be happening as Florida Governor Rick Scott is evangelizing a push towards STEM education (while cutting education budgets by more than 30%)."
