University of TX Advisor Fired After Whistleblowing

Government Taxes, Texas, Education (public sector)

Rick O’Donnell, a special advisor to the University of Texas System Board of Regents, said he was fired from his position after being denied access to data that he claimed would show an increase in the amount of taxpayer money being spent on professors and administrators who spend little or no time teaching. O’Donnell previously wrote a report questioning the value of research being done at public universities. The University of Texas system denied the accusation that they withheld data, and said it has been compiled but is still in its raw form and is not yet ready to be released.
