A New Initiative in Scholarships for Mothers

A New Initiative in Scholarships for Mothers

For most mothers, money is more a luxury than a constant item. Between paying for housing, food, clothes for her children, and her children’s tuition in school, money is often very tight. This is one of the main setbacks for moms who want to go back to school and earn a degree. It just doesn’t seem like an option sometimes. The Obama administration has made a lot of improvements and now there are more scholarships for mothers than there ever have been in the past. This is an attempt to help moms get on with their lives and earn a living for themselves, which can be very difficult with the constant whirlwind of activity that inherently comes with motherhood.

There is never a bad time to begin preparing for your own future, and if there’s ever been a good time, it’s right now. If you have been thinking about furthering your education, getting a college degree, or advancing your career, now would be the best time to take action on those dreams and finally make them come true. President Obama recently passed the initiative to provide for scholarships for mothers. Any mother can receive $5,000 to help pay for tuition and other school expenses. This is a huge step when it comes to providing more opportunities for hard-working moms and struggling for families.

The reason was that I wanted to know how to prevent my special education students from going to jail. I worked for gang diversion project in East Lduring for year. I studied juvenile delinquency for masters program and sociology in my doctorate. There is lot of information about delinquency/criminality in socioeconomic data: poverty has high population densities, high aggression/physical abuse rates, etc. Sociologists know that “quiet” space is necessary for mental health and does not exist in households of poverty.

You’ll have to be very careful about making assumptions when reading about school statistics, because there are many factors and special conditions that go into those statistics. Drop-out rates may include those who are on the 5+ year plan but do not include those attending alternative schools, etc. Minors may be incarcerated or detention, but after certain number of absence days they are dropped from their home school enrollment. Some students the transfer for enrollment (accountability) purposes. Schools may also include those on minimum day or special arrangements (i.e., 1-2 hrs/day) to avoid drop-out figure (this fact figures into school accountability for current methods of evaluating schools after NCLB). way around laws for attending public schools is to sign up for home …
