Lottery scholarship seekers may need higher test scores
Reading this article, you get the feeling that Tennesseans got the old Professor Harold Hill treatment when it comes to instituting a state lottery. We were promised scholarships for students and given a set of standards and now less than two years later, they're changing the standards because the lottery isn't turning out to be the cash cow everyone imagined it would be. It feels like someone we've been SPAM mailed about this one--oh, you want to lose weight? The lottery can help! You want a lower interest rate on your mortgage? The lottery can help! You want a better sex life? The lottery can help!
We got promised a lot of things and now they are going back and changing the rules. Who'd've figured?
