Question by james w: do college grants provided by the federal government actually hurt those who want to succeed?
I’m in college now, and it seems like a doghouse out there. See I go to a community college, and I have been in college for a while since I have been going part time. I am seeing a change in college education. I used to believe that if government gave grants ($ you don’t have to pay back) to people who could not afford college then more people would be educated and have more knowledgeable. I feel that i’m wrong now. See when I went to college they were playing loud music and I could not understand the words cause it was in Spanish. People were all over the place yelling and carrying on and dancing to this ethnic music. I thought college was supposed to be for learning and studying, not all this crap. I also think that college may be easier now because it has to be to pass these people and to get more money from the government. Am I right about this? Is our federal government ruining college education?If the government stays out of college education, would it benefit hard working people?
The more college graduates we have, the harder it is to find a job.
don’t you just love it when people assume your rich??

So, your objective to college is that some people don’t study when they are there? The one social program that almost everyone can agree on is education. Just because some people waste that, doesn’t mean the government should stay out.
Now, if you want to change the laws so that the money is a grant if you get certain grades, but must be paid back as a loan if you flunk out, that would make the program better and encourage education.
