COLLEGE SCANDAL?

college scandal

Whatever happened to the college scandal? People using their wealth to assure their kids a good college, while not bad as in evil, still not right, because maybe someone of lesser means might have missed out on a free ride, maybe, but that was never proven. The U.S. Attorney’s Office chose to punish these individuals by giving them short stints in the pokey, what a waste of a good opportunity. I’m not saying that the masterminds, the ones looking to profit off of this don’t deserve jail time, they do, but the people that were taken for their money, do they really deserve prison for loving their kids. My solution would have been different. They are obviously wealthy and I would have offered them an alternative to jail. With so many underprivileged kids, who have the smarts but not the money to afford that kind of an education, I would have focused on them. I would gave these wealthy people an opportunity to make up for their crimes by paying for ten students colleges tuition’s at prestigious universities. Full rides to include room and board and a stipend for books and transportation. Of those ten, they would have had to pay for five, the ones with the best grades, to get their Master’s, of those five, they would have to pay for 2 to get their PhD’s. That’s ten kids for each individual in lieu of going to the hoosegow. That would have equaled something like a hundred kids. I’m sure they would have gladly taken it. What a waste of an opportunity.
