I love this and think it's time to return to basics where our young people will gain more pride and awareness of what Black excellence means. Integration seems to really have mostly fostered a generation of delusional prideless children which only has aided white supremacvy.

President Obama Proposing in 2017 to Provide Free College Tuition to Low Income Students Attending Black Colleges



Washington, DC — If all goes well, the Obama Administration’s plan to make community college free for select students will go live in the year 2017. The program, also known as America’s College Promise (ACP), will allow eligible community college students to work toward the first half of either their bachelor’s or associate’s degree at no cost.”

Supporting two years of free community college for responsible students through a $60.8 billion mandatory investment in ACP over the next ten years, this proposal will also provide low-income students who attend Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) with up to two free years of college or significantly reduced tuition.

The program is a part of a $4.1 trillion 2017 fiscal year budget, and Obama says his budget plan is especially for those in low-income families. Within that budget is also $69.4 billion in discretionary funding for the Department of Education, which will help all children to have access to high-quality preschool education.

But why?

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
