Clearly your parents did not even take advantage of the free K-12 for you...Originally Posted by Richard Davis
If you want it "free" for grown adults, why should there be any "academic" qualifications needed, aside from the idea that one has finished high school?
You leftists are always crying discrimination, discrimination at every turn, so why do the colleges and universities even have an academic requirement.
Isn't that a violation of the less academing achieving student's civil rights?
And what makes you think Harvard is solely a Private institution? They get massive funding from gov't taxpayers every year because the gov't allows tax deductions for endowments that are given to Harvard. Those tax "subsidies" have to be made whole by other taxpayers. Their students receive pell grants, in the millions every year.
The total endowment for just HARVARD University in 2014 stood at a whopping $32 BILLION. That's not MILLION that's BILLION.
Ivy league schools right now hold endowments to the tune of over $500,000,000,000.
I think we need to MAKE Harvard take students who aren't top of the heap.
Doesn't that seem Fair?
Sure seems fair to me. Don't you agree?
