    Obama poised to give financial aid to federal, state prisoners
    The move, which could come as soon as this week, would end a 20-year ban on offering Pell grants to state and federal prisoners.

    More prisoners may soon have access to federal subsidies to pay for college under a new Obama administration initiative, ending a 20-year ban on Pell grants for state and federal prisoners.

    The move could come as soon as this week. Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Attorney General Loretta Lynch are scheduled to visit Goucher College’s Prison Education Partnership at the Maryland Correctional Institution in Jessup on Friday, to make “an important announcement related to federal aid.”

    So. locking up Non Violent drug offenders costs less than rehabilitation? Glad to know you support a Nazi regime where people get thrown in a cage forever for drugs.

    The whole process for sentencing non violent drug offenders needs to be overhauled.

    Drug addicts deserve sympathy. Drug dealers ruin millions of lives and are the root of 90% of violent crime in the country.

    I started grad school a few years ago and Obammy cut federal unsubsidized loans. Doing something like this is a complete slap in the face to the millions of people drowned in debt from student loans. Fuck Obama and his fundamental transformation.

    For me, to even give that group jail time seems excessive. Putting them in some kind of probation that requires them to stay clean would be a lot better. If they want a higher education, that's better.

    I'm just imaging this program will end up being abused, and some of the more hard core prisoners are going to find a way to get their hands on the money as well.

    No he's not. I'm all for not locking up drug offenders, but i'm definitely not for subsidizing criminal behavior.

    They never catch the big drug traffickers. Guzman is sitting on his porch sipping tea. We have small time drug offenders locked up longer than rapist and murderers.

    Then legalize drugs and it will no longer be criminal behavior.

    Good for Obama, many felons come out, want to change but cannot get a decent job. This will help them come back to society....

    If Obama did that, I'd be the first one to start a thread praising him.

    Agree that they never catch the big fish but the street dealers are the one's offing people in the street. I really don't care about el padrone getting rich it's the shooting sites on my commute that are my problem.

    If Obama really wanted to shake up the system he would legalize drugs. That I would get behind. As it stands he won't even step up to decriminalize marijuana nationally.

    I liked the push to drastically cut the costs (or basically make free) of community college. Why single out criminals to help? Why not offer the help to all US citizens equally?
