    Univ. of Wisconsin professor, dismayed at latest state budget, takes to Twitter to spread a little enlightenment:

    She begins to then hit up incoming Badgers to let them know just how bad things are:

    Faculty "governing group" (maybe the Faculty Senate?), perhaps knowing whence comes its living, is not amused.

    The most outrageous aspect of this for those on eithe side of the issue is Prof. Goldrick-Rab needs grandpa "connect the dots" for her.

    In her (likely self-penned) bio she's referred to as a "scholar-activist." I would argue that they're the worst.

    Story says she has been very open that she's seeking another job because of Walker.

    Guessing that other job doesn't come through too quickly. OTOH, tenure, suckas!

    Tenure and Twitter are a bad mix.

    Gov. Walker is better looking than Hitler.

    Discouraging students from attending Wisconsin seems a pretty ineffective form of activism.

    These schools need to do a better job of finding their indoctrinators.
