Color me skeptical
She has set a goal of assuring that any students who work hard can go to college regardless of how much money their parents earn. And although she says it is time for significant federal action -- perhaps in the category of the G.I. Bill after World War II -- she has also assured observers that she is not advocating a bigger role for the government.
OK, so any student who works hard -- notice, she didn't say performs on tests or anything like that, it's "work hard" according to the AP -- will get to go to college. Even if their parents are poor. But she's not advocating a bigger role for government?
Wow. This should be fun to watch. If she thinks that the private sector will step in and pitch in enough money for millions of poor kids she's got another thing coming. Government needs a bigger role in this. A more aggressive, active role to ensure poor kids can go to college. Doesn't look like this Administration knows anything about doing ensuring government can help the poor, though.
Maybe the committee can help them, but let's just say I'm skeptical.
