Kentucky College Scholarships: Smart Kids Need Not Apply

In a stroke of Kentucky genius, State Auditor Crit Luallen (D) recommended to a panel studying college affordabilty that Kentucky should reconsider merit-based college scholarships. The AP reported today that Luallen said, "Kentucky cannot afford to give money to people who don't need it."

Apparently, academic performance should not be considered in awarding scholarships, only socio-economic and minority factors.

That's right kids: Forget about hard work and good grades; from now on, Kentucky's Robin Hoods will make sure that your parents are encouraged to make less money and throw away your report cards.
