No. Better cost control of higher education. Better partnership of employers and higher education. Better opportunity for college students to obtain work experience with a balanced class schedule. Better scholarship support for merit and need based students. Better early education that teaches self ownership and discipline for students before being thrust into a higher education environment that demands it for success. These are all factors that will help students succeed. Simply providing food stamps will not solve any of the underlying causes that create this apparent need in the first place. If we pass this bill it will only perpetuate the underlying issues. We will see a short term gain in increasing better access for students to get food in their stomach but think about the long term costs, not just to the public but the recipients of the welfare.
