A new state-funded center in the College of Education and Human Performance “will grant $3.5 million annually in scholarships to students with disabilities.” I know this is supposed to be a feel-good story, but . . . Shouldn’t the “college experience” including higher education? Florida will spend $3.5 million so young people who lack the ability to do college-level work can live in a dorm and hang out on a university campus.Perhaps, as a commenter suggests, it's a better experience for the young people than the more usual assisted living arrangement. And perhaps, there will be work-study opportunities for rehabilitation and special education majors.
On the other hand, it's unlikely that such enrollment ploys are going to have any effect on the sales of U.S. News-style college guides.
