Jim Galloway brings a quick rundown of new legislation the Senate Democrats are pushing. The one that caught me was a bill to reduce the GPA requirement for HOPE grants to 2.o.
Are you just trying to get some media, Senator Carter? I went to one of the roughest schools in the county and managed to graduate with over a 4.0 and medium effort.
2.0 people should not be getting HOPE, sir. If they don’t apply themselves more than that in high school, all the taxpayers are doing is giving them a free year of school because you know they’re not going to complete
a degree the postsecondary program of their choice.
Yeah – I said it.
