GOP give Colleges Grants Profiting From Charter Schools, but Raise Student Loan Rate and Cut Pell Grants

Hypocrisy, Republican Leaders don’t Mind Charter Schools Sponsored by Universities, Colleges, and Corporations getting Federal Grants and While Profiting from them, but will Raise the Interest Rate on Student Loan and will cut Pell Grant Funding

Republicans are making funding ready and lifting caps for more charter schools for  profit, but, you, the student nothing .

Year after year universities, colloges, and corporations receive grant, but you the student or the parent with a child attending or seeking more schooling after High school  maybe faced with where do you find the money to attend college.   Unlike the corporations and Universities that are profiting off your children they don’t have to worry about Republicans raising the rate on them.  It’s that corporate and rich ideal of Republicans where everyone else pays more and those with more pay less.

While in office, 43rd President George Bush and  a majority Republican Congress made it possible for Universities and Colleges or corporations to receive federal grants while profiting from your child attending their elementary schools to High schools.  Bush’s No Child Left Behind and the Federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Part B, Sections 502–511 authorizes funding grants for charter schools, in which both calls for extra funding for charter schools such as grants and money from private donors or foundations.

 Besides the millions spent on lobbying according to the list, you will see a college get millions in grants over several years and all the while making millions in profits.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Colleges are non-profit (0+ / 0-)

    So, the grants would likely go toward setting up teaching residencies for their education schools. This would allow students to get training in progressive and alternative teaching techniques, and would allow Ed. faculty to practice these same methodologies. I would support that.

    What I'm absolutely against is for-profit corporations with CEOs making many millions a year profiting off of charters. If a charter isn't locally run by non-profit groups in the community or by local universities, it's not going to be a good idea.

    There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.
