Lottery Scholarship GPA Requirements Likely to Fall

I suppose that it makes sense that a General Assembly comprised of mostly mediocre legislators would seek to reward Tennessee's mediocre college students.

I also suppose that there is some degree of liberal thought at work here, as over 2,000 State employees with degrees in hand are laid off while students who partied too hard to keep a pathetic "B-" GPA are rewarded. Liberals have always had that urge to push as many people to the middle of the "bell curve" as possible and then provide economic incentives to keep them there, all the while stifling the achievements of the top end of that curve - especially when it comes to public education issues.

I certainly hope the Senate Republicans, led by Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, will take a stand on this bill and keep the GPA requirements for the lottery scholarship as they currently stand.
