(WHAS11) -- Hundreds of college students from all around the state of Kentucky rallied in Frankfort Tuesday for higher education.

The students went barefoot to speak to lawmakers hoping to emphasize education cuts fulfill the stereotype that Kentuckians are poor and uneducated.

UofL's student government senior advisor actually co-authored the bill that aims to keep a college education affordable for Kentucky students.

Governor Steve Beshear is calling for a reduction in state funding of up to 6.4 percent for post-secondary education.
