    Obama administration wants to give prisoners Pell grants

    Obama administration wants to give prisoners Pell grants through experimental program




    In a speech Monday, Duncan said the administration wants to develop "experimental sites that will make Pell grants available" to inmates so they can get training for jobs.

    Prisoners in federal or state institutions are not currently eligible for Pell grants, which are for lower-income people and do not have to be repaid.

    It seems brutha is doing many of the things for black folks that black critics said that he wasn't concerned about. What white president ever attempted to free prisoners that are doing outrageous time for petty crimes? Which by the way will benefit us more than any other way due to the unfair laws when it comes to sending us to jail.

    But they don't see that.

    Peace!
