This is from CNN, it is an wonderful article. I wonder how many of the supporters are democrats.
Tatmon, now 23, only vaguely remembers the day Brown walked in and told his first-grade class she would pay for them to go to college -- if they got that far.
Though not all the sponsors are wildly rich, the endeavor does require a significant financial commitment. And just telling a child that college is an option isn't enough. The key is daily contact and mentoring by a caring adult, either the sponsor or a hired project coordinator, Winton says.
If I had the money, I would pay for random poor children to go to college, but I don't know about being a surrogate parent. If I was going to do that, I would tell them just to move in with me, and become their parent, then you can kick their butt when they screw up.
well I am glad someone has figured it out, It takes the involvement of a person (not a government) who cares to help children succeed.
