Legislative lunacy

May 12, 2011

Wednesday's front page of The Sun exposes the damaging illogic of our state legislature. They passed "breaks" for illegal students while eliminating the 350 merit Distinguished Scholars awards. More higher education, college, as the fix, when state high schools are graduating, generally, less functional young adults ( see "Maryland's uneducated grads," by Marta H. Mossburg on May11) won't improve our work force. The emphasis should be the major revamping and improving of our base K-12 educations, provided college for the deserving, motivated achievers.
