I know many people who have received financial grants like the Pell Grant to attain their college degree and they have been very successful. I actually took out loans, had a GI bill and a pell grant. Took me 11 years to pay back my loans.Maxine, it is NOT about the financial aid. It is about the person. This type of financial aid has helped many people to get over the economical barriers of life. But, I think it is flawed in the way THAT if students are granted aid and f off and do not graduate, or keep putting it off, I believe the grants should have to be REPAID to the government. This way students would get off their butts and finish what they started.
False some get finical aid and work at the same time
It's true with some people Maxine as they get aid and won't work because either they can't find a job or don't want to look for one, as the government is giving them free money and handouts which are obviously enough for some people to live on.
