UNC Chancellor - "Virginia has never done a very good job of supporting its colleges"

In this commentary in the Virginian-Pilot, the comments of the chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are cited as further evidence that the Virginia legislature is asleep on the job of providing for higher education in the Commonwealth, and that other states are profiting as a result.

Another commentary in the same paper says funding education is a key obstacle to the success of AG Kilgore and other Virginia Republicans.

On the same theme, Governor Warner spoke about education funding in his commencement address at George Mason University, as reported here in the Washington Post.

This Washington Times article indicates that Delegate Robert Marshall has resolved that what's really important is to get Virginia colleges and universities to stop providing sex education.

Earlier in the week, long-time U.Va. sports beat reporter of the Daily Progress Jerry Radcliffe explained here that Governor Warner and the General Assembly had no standing to intrude on U.Va.'s response to expansion of the Atlantic Coast Conference, "when they don’t spend a dime on collegiate sports."
