We’re finding that states like Florida that took away from spending at colleges in the 2008-2011 time frame are now seeing increased spending, particularly at the community college level.
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) January 14, 2015
In the fourth quarter of 2014, ScholarlyHires.com has seen an increase in college hiring funds being freed up by mid-year legislative funding assessments. Due to increased state budgets and educational spending, more colleges are able to focus their attention on hiring quality faculty and staff. The company has seen an increase in website usage by colleges advertising jobs, especially those looking to hire more diverse faculty and staff.
Community colleges are seeing the most freedom to spend on new hires, especially in Ohio, Florida, and Alabama. States like California have developed plans for hiring more diverse faculty and staff, but must wait for the states to approve spending budgets before they can move forward. Even New York and surrounding states have plans for hiring, although they have a few political obstacles to overcome. As long as the economy continues to improve, states will continue to contribute to educational spending.
