Why shouldn't they be eligible? It makes no sense to penalize someone who chose to further their education. They don't become millionaires overnight when they choose to become lawyers, doctors, educators or scientists. Our entire student loan situation should be revamped. As it is, only the elite, or those willing to take on massive debt to get a higher education to better their lives and the lives of their communities, are able to get college degrees. If anyone wonders why we have such a disparity in between the 1%, the middle class and the poor, the blame lies directly at the feet of our education system. Not our educators, but our education system. Education should be free for everyone. Period.
