Jul 23, 2013 Full story: Denver Post

Making college affordable for graduates of Denver Public Schools is an important and worthy goal, and it's one the Denver Scholarship Foundation has valiantly undertaken for nearly 10 years.

WHY in the world would there be a SCHOLARSHIP TAX now? As if TUITION RATES WERE NOT HIGH ENOUGH. I think this shows that the powers that be don't CARE about real education. All they want is dumbed down sheeple to rule.

Of course now a days, many 4 year institutions are rackets anyway. Ask any intelligent student or parent. They take your hard earned money, or credit, and you have to pay for political correct teachings, indoctrination again, instead of real world knowledge needed for WORK OUTSIDE. Some of these young people aren't stupid. They know now that their college degrees aren't worth the paper they're on. If they want to get a REAL JOB in their fields, they have to get EXPENSIVE CERTIFICATIONS, which SHOULD be taken in college.

Add to that the fact that due to LAWS PASSED BY CONGRESS like the "affordable" care act, Dodd Frank and some others business has a NEW norm--part time workers. So if the grads want any job at all (not to mention having to compete with the new arrivals from foreign countries) they have to forget they have student debt to pay off, forget the fact they want to strike out on their own and take what they can get--IF they can get it.

It's pathetic. Our country is DYING because of the stupid moves of "progressive" sheeple and their politicians. They take the fresh lifeblood of this country, and destroy it either in war or languishing at home with a useless degree and no job. And it is starting to generate some serious justifiable anger. One set of rules for them and their kin and one set of rules for the new arrivals to our country. It's a powder keg.

My advice to kids graduating from high school? FORGET COLLEGE. Get a part time job and take some other type of useful classes if you can. Suck it up and live with mom and dad for awhile. You MAY have to dig in; who knows.
