I'm sorry if I'm strong in my opinon, and I hope I didn't offend anyone.
I'm not in GA, but my sister is and I told her about this - she's much more outspoken than I am.
I am currently a single mom, with 2 girls, one is disabled, I work full time one job, one part-time, and I go to school full time (graduating this summer - finally!) and I own my own home.
The only aid I have ever recieved from the government (even though I am a goverment employee) is my student loans and grants - though I qualify for a lot of government aid, espeically with my daughter - I just don't feel right taking it.
If they raise my tuition or cut funding I couldn't do it and I would be furious to say the least. Lack of education leads to poverty, and poverty is a vicious cycle which is hard to get out of. Can you tell I'm a bit passionate about that?
Okay - I'll end the rant.... *grin*
