Re: “Beebe announces more lottery money

I am currently a student at JBU. I am a Senior and looking to graduate this December. I am taking the 12 hours and my GPA is above the required numbers. I have received nothing. The ADHE website YOUniversal shows that everything I have sent in has been received and in time. We have heard nothing. No "hey, you didnt qualify" No "hey, we ran out of money" and most certainly no "Hey, you've got money" I would atleast like to hear something.
If they are looking at needs based, then I should atleast be on the radar as we are sending our oldest to college this next week. Two in college is a killer when it comes to the family of 5's finances living on 1 income. Don't get me wrong, I am happy that my son got some of the money. It would just be awesome if we both did, then the rest of us could eat too.

Re: “Grading teachers

When does the general public get to start grading parents on their performance? Something similar to this plan ~ The families who have A level students and get great scholarships get a break on their taxes? The families who kids need extra help in school have to pay more taxes? Really....???

The teacher has to deal with more than just a student in a classroom. Many times that teacher is going the extra mile to make sure that the WHOLE CHILD is growing. That whole chiild concept includes the family unit at home ~ however unstable it maybe.

If the teacher could instruct the parents on how to better equip their child, then I could understand the incentive pay based on results, but that is not the case. The teacher does not get to grade the family unit at all, they just have to deal with the all fallout.
