    I'm opposed to taxdollars funding anyones college education.

    If you want to go to college go get your own loan or get a job.

    For profit schools are currently nothing more than a scam. Their degrees are mostly useless and they charge you an arm and a leg above what a traditional college would.

    I am guessing all the libtards who will respond to this thread don't believe all those tenured Leftist professors in public and private colleges are working 'for-profit.'


    LOL

    The poll is flawed.
    It is not a simple black and white question.
    The question should be - should there be a (FAR) more critical eye concerning government grants (taxpayer funded) for tuition in ANY college/university.
    Should said students have to maintain attendance requirements, should a criminal conviction be an automatic grant withdrawal etc. etc.

    Wow. So you're against public colleges and universities entirely.

    Where did you go to college?

    Presntly you'll lose your grant if you're caught smoking weed but not if you murder someone in cold blood.

    Figure that one out.

    I know a guy who went to one where you get to keep your school bought laptop when you graduate. Only really you bought it since its entirely funded out of your tuition. He said that was the only thing of value he got from the school. He blows glass for a living -same as before school

    End the government monopoly on affordable education. Skyrocketing costs, shitty results...sounds like government meddling to me.
