Segal Quoted in U.S. News & World Report Article on Higher Education Cuts in Poor States

Howard Segal, a history professor at the University of Maine, was quoted in the U.S. News & World Report article, “Poorest states cut what experts say could help the most: Higher ed.” Maine and Mississippi “are the vanguard of what will happen to public higher education in many of the other 48 states, or already is happening in some of them,” Segal said of two states with high rates of poverty and lower-than-average levels of college education. The Hechinger Report also carried the article.
