The board last month narrowly rejected a proposal to take $5 million from Carbondale’s budget to give to Edwardsville. It means SIU Carbondale will continue with about 60 percent of the system’s share of state funding, despite having just slightly more students than Edwardsville.

This is not true, however. The problem is that they are bluntly refusing to give us our 40%. There is a conflict here precisely because they aren’t even giving us the 40% in spite of having identical enrollments.
