Fluency in English? Hmmm .. I guess we have to think of “fluency” in a different way.

“Sorry, I teach at a university. I can’t imagine any university admitting that fool.”

You either teach at a pretty good school, or don’t have much imagination- and it doesn’t take much.

There are so many hard working, accomplished young people who are far more deserving of a helping hand than her.

What has she done to deserve such a gift? Nothing.

He should make it a black religious college because it’s going to definitely take at least a couple miracles to get her through.

Not only does she have to choose a black college but the black college has to choose her as well.

Naw! JK! The black college isn’t gonna really have a choice on whether or not to accept her! Not if they know what’s good for them!

In the normal course of events she would, indeed, finish high school, but would not get a diploma- would not graduate. There is probably enough pressure and threats building now that she will be awarded a diploma and her grades will be sealed or post facto changed. I would love to hear her give the valedictory at Graduation.

Actually today’s colleges LOVE the remedial grade school set. It’s a CASH COW to have “professional students” on endless grants failing and repeatedly taking non-accredited courses for $$$$$! Been going on since the eighties.

They also love the up and coming “honey boo boo” set (think 3-30 age group; ADHD; on anti-depressants and permanently living with mommykins) that have (typically) a dad and mom living in separate homes, both vying and buying their children’s love. The house that has the fewest expectations and least amount of rules WINS!!!

If she does take this "opportunity" I am sure whatever college accepts the money her will coddle her through at least two years with college tutors who will in fact take her tests and write her essays. Once the game becomes too much to maintain she will be quietly dropped or if there is still attention, she will be given a job with a portentious title and no actual responsibilities in the school itself, perhaps Assistant to the Department of Afro American Studies, or, for all it is worth, Full Professor of Afro American Studies.

She is fluent. She is not halting and speaks naturally. She simply is not terribly bright and doesn’t have disc space very many words and it is debatable whether it is English, but she is fluent.

Well, I am not going to join in on the razzing here. I’m glad for her and hope she does something with it, although I’m not going to hold my breath. I’d rather see charity given than free grants paid by taxpayers.

I think several of our black multi millionaire Big Stuff entertainers ought to follow suit by sponsoring a kid from the ghetto themselves, instead of strutting around and dissing middle class whitey every chance they get. Oprah could probably put half the kids in S. Chicago through college if she wanted to.

I did think it was sad how this girl was put up and expected to come through when she’s been a product of so much dumbing down and low expectations.

dont worry

the offer is for TUTORS in high school and TUTORS to help her pass the SAT

so apparantly she cant do it on her own...

Would a college allow TUTORS to pass their entrance exam and essay etc ???

what about classes she would probably need remedial English etc

what major school will allow her to make a mockery of their requirements ???

but first she would need to finish high school

and I dont think she takes college prep clases...

I think she will fit right in to the black college crowd. She certainly is above average in the smarts department and her attitude is right on target.

I’m happy for her. Some day she will be approving or disapproving your healthcare claims with all of the fairness and impartiality a person could possible hope for out of a ghetto thug sow.

Isn't it RACIST for him to assume she needs tutors to graduate high school and pass the SAT? Just because she is black?

Is "tutor" code for "cheater who will take your tests for you"?

a university seeing someone with a full ride (guaranteed payday) will go out of its way to admit her.
