Ponzi needs a new town; Jul 25, 2016 4:59 AM; "Say Yes to Education" program could mean free college for Louisville students"

Going to college for free could soon be a reality for some students in low-income families.

A meeting is planned Monday afternoon  to explain the "Say Yes To Education" program being discussed.  The program has worked in other cities, and Louisville is being considered.

...The "Say Yes To Education" program is a non-profit that works with school districts and local governments to provide money for full-tuition scholarships.

Remember when Greensboro was told about full-tuition scholarships? 

That means every is penny paid, plus the resources to help kids get to college. Families in need are given a priority.

...Each city must fund an endowment made up of public and private dollars.  JCPS says it will need about $100 million in funding to support all of the scholarships..."

...George Weiss promised 112 Philadelphia sixth graders that if they graduated from high school, he’d pay their college tuition. But he didn’t just offer money, he also offered support so that the students were ready to make the most of that opportunity.

That program has grown into “Say Yes,” a national foundation that helps entire communities - like Buffalo, Syracuse, and Guilford County, N.C.  - give every child in the community meaningful support toward college.

Meaningful support?

That's not what Susan Ladd etc... said

Now, they are interested in bringing their model to another city and Louisville is in the running to be selected...."
