Let's all get over the "your" vs "you're" on this 'oh-so-clever" e-card...k?
Someone posted this on facebook....my initial reaction was "Oh, another 'poor me, I'm white, and only black people (or other minorities) get help - REVERSE DISCRIMINATION (puke) is running rampant and I am so unfortunate because I'm not black (or another minority).... (or so unfortunate b/c my parents are married ---- or so unfortunate b/c my dad works for a living)'" kind of thing.
Then I started thinking about CM --- and about how many people have the opinion that parents 'should' financially plan for their child's higher education. Others feel if someone wants to go to college, they will figure out a way to pay their own way.
So, what do you think?
What do you think about ANY federal financial aid being available to ANYONE (rich, poor, white, black, hispanic, native american, asian, etc.) -- about financial aid being available to college students from all family types (married parents, divorced parents, same sex parents, single parents)???
Keep in mind that the bulk of financial aid is awarded in the form of low interest loans (which must be paid back).....and there are some grants available as well (which do not have to be paid back).
