Back when a lot of us were college-bound whether we wanted to be or not as it was expected of us, the concept of getting a scholarship or grant was that we needed to have higher than average grades and test scores to qualify.
On the Federal front, the people under Biden are turning that notion on its head.
The Department of Education oversees the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) grant program, which provides tuition breaks for students obtaining degrees in education who commit to teaching in “high-need fields and underserved schools” for four years after graduation. The Biden administration, with the support of Education Secretary Miguel Cardona, announced that the annual grant amount for third and fourth-year students will double to $8,000 per recipient.
Biden’s plan will also remove the existing GPA requirements for recipients in the hopes of increasing access for students of color.
“The proposed plan also aims to increase the access that students from low-income backgrounds and students of color have to comprehensive teacher preparation,” a press release from the Education Department reads.
Just because of a person’s skin color they will be getting help to go to college whether they really should be there or not and on top of it, their field of study would be education where the “professionals” in the field are so expert that the United States has been falling behind the rest of the world for decades in basic subjects.
Oh, that’s a great idea for the future of the nation where said professionals are more concerned about teaching critical race theory than algebra and basic physics.
Only in America.
