Put an end to perpetual students on welfare

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Stop funding the perpetual students on welfare. It seems there is a loop-hole in the public assistance programs surrounding continuing education such that some become perpetual students in order to extend welfare benefits. Scenarios such as intentionally obtaining a degree in a field for which no local jobs exist, failing or missing a course that is required for graduation, and/or changing majors after a few semesters. I'm sure there are others and they need to be addressed.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
