Wow, if I had been smart enough, I could have gone for free back in the day.
Though that’s a big IF.=)
Truth be told though, my nice fancy liberal arts college did hook us up well enough with financial aid that it cost me less to go to my private college then to state school.
I think programs like this are important, to let the middle class crawl our way up the socio economic scale. Because an education like Harvard sure doesn’t hurt on your way up.
I really am impressed by these recent decisions, which I know are a result of nice endowments. Regardless, they go a little further towards bridging the gap in our country between the classes.
Before you jump up and down at me though, I do realize that for a kid to get into a school like this, they need educational resources the majority of children don’t have access to. I’m not saying this is a solution, but it will help a few people at a time, and that is never a bad thing.
I mean fuck it. I came from a single parent household, have worked my ass off my entire life and am now reaping the benefits. I know there are other kids like me, who want to be better then where they came from, and one day will be.
