Making College More Expensive: The Unintended Consequences of Federal Tuition Aid

The Government should not be paying for or assisting in higher education. If you want a college degree then you should be willing to work for it, for working to accrue the funds to pay the price of the education adds incentive to do well and now squander away the academic years.
My wife worked at a University and shared a story about one young woman who enrolled only long enough to get the money then quit to party. I don't know what kind of loan, assistance or grant this was but for some reason it was paid directly to her. I know this is not the case in many assistance programs or grants, but it just happened that this one was.
