My question involves education law in the State of: Missouri:
A public University has cut an athletic program citing a need to allocate funds elsewhere. I have 4 main questions
1: The school knew weeks ago, but withheld information that it would cut the team, which has led to students losing scholarships from the team and not having enough time to transfer and look elsewhere. The students have also signed leases to stay in the town next year. Is their a possible suit involving the loss of money there due to the school withholding information for no reason?
2. The school has yet to provide anyone with proof that they are saving money. Is the school required to do this since it is public?
3. If we can prove that the amount of students on the team and the amount that come next year pay enough tuition to even out the cost of keeping the team then is the school able to cut the team without providing another reason?
4. If we are able to raise enough money to privately fund the team is the school required to keep the team without providing another reason to cut it?
