Felons get degree from prison but no federal aid?
    #5913397 - 07/30/06 12:39 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

I thought about something today... How is it that a felon is uneligible for federal aid for college, but at the same time they can commit another felony and get their college education/degree free from prison. I wouldn't doubt some would start a crime spree just to get this kind of education payfree considering they aren't even eligible for financial aid in the US.

they can get a degree in prison, because it's allocated in the prison budget, since they still have to pretend jail is a rehabilitative institution.  But felons are not allowed to get any kind of government assistance once outside of prison.

p.s. nice sig :wink:

Felons are in fact allowed to get some kinds of government assistance once outside of prison depending on their offense and what particular kind of assistance you are talking about. I know they can get Section 8 HUD housing assistance as one of my tenants has a felony. After 5 years, for most felons Section 8 is at least a possibility.

Well I believe thats part of social service-type stuff. I'm by no means even close to an expert on that, but I do know felons can still get welfare, foodstamps, etc. But as far as getting the government to help pay for anything other than necessities, is a hurdle.

Of course, there is ALWAYS a waiver for something, provided you know the right person. That's for damn sure, cause this is fuckin america! heh..
