In these consolidated appeals, inmates at the Farmington Correctional Center appeal from the district court's1 order dismissing their complaint against federal and state officials, claiming the withdrawal of financial assistance for higher education subjected them to cruel and unusual punishment, invidiously discriminated against a subclass of minority inmates, and denied them due process and equal protection. Having carefully reviewed the record, we conclude that no error of law appears and that the district court correctly denied relief.


Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the district court. See 8th Cir. R. 47A(a).
