  1. c'est la vie

    Young adults who struggle most are often those who did not finish college. This bill addresses that issue. That said, I’m not sure why it would exclude students who have been convicted of a felony. Students who have been convicted, served their time and are now trying to turn their lives around by returning back to school should have our support. I have the same issue with the Delaware SEED Scholarship Program.
