Senate Higher Education Committee Chairman Seth Harp told leaders from two of Georgia's public historically Black colleges that they should look into merging with nearby majority-White schools in order to keep afloat financially, according to the Associated Press. Harp believes it would also help close the gap on segregation in Georgia once and for all while also alleviating the impending budget cuts many public colleges are facing this year.
