Governor: Florida doesn't need anthropologists

In an interview with the Sarasota Herald Tribune and a subsequent radio interview (both reported online on Inside Higher Ed), Florida Governor Rick Scott stated that he wants taxpayer money "to go to degrees where people can get jobs in this state." Speaking of anthropology, he noted, "It's a great degree if people want to get it. But we don't need them here." 

The governor's remarks follow attacks on social and behavioral science degree programs, including psychology and political science, by other Republican leaders including the soon-to-be-president of the Florida Senate, Don Gaetz.
