Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin wants state colleges and universities to produce more electrical engineers and less French literature scholars.
The first-term Republican governor has a workforce shortage on his hands, and he says part of the problem is the public schools are not turning out degrees of the "things people want."
"There will be more incentives to electrical engineers than french literature majors. There just will," Bevin told reporters this week when announcing his two-year state spending proposal. "All the people in the world that want to study French literature can do so, they are just not going to be subsidized by the taxpayer."
