Gov. Rick Scott addressed higher education leaders Wednesday like a professor teaching a class, lecturing them about his business philosophy and even giving a quiz. In the end, his message to the Florida Board of Governors and state university presidents was nearly identical to what he’s been saying for months. He said that he wants universities to keep costs down and provide a return on the state investment in them. .. His address during a meeting at New College of Florida comes as the board considers ways to tie state funding and tuition increases to the performance of universities.
