Mitt's "free tuition" scholarship

Not sure why he would tout such a thing, considering that Rs are against a) govt involvement with anything, b) college, and c) education.
But Mitt bragged about how he promoted college education as governor:

"When I was governor of Massachusetts, to get a high school degree you had to pass an exam. If you graduated in the top quarter of your class, we gave you a John and Abigail Adams scholarship—four years tuition-free to the college of your choice in Massachusetts that's a public institution."

Sounds pretty sweet, except that in Mass., "tuition" = fees and fees = tuition.

So what he left out was that the scholarship doesn’t cover fees, which in the Massachusetts state university system are much greater than tuition. In Romney's last year as Gov. (2006), at the flagship University of Massachusetts (Amherst), a year of in-state tuition was $1714. Fees for a year--$7881.

Mitt's never fond of the details.

Well that's why they were able to afford to give out so many scholarships.

If they paid the fees then they'd go broke.

Licks? Nah. I'm not one of those whose head has a likelihood of exploding based on the outcome of the election, so in the end...as life and the world will go on, for me. I just think it will be very entertaining to watch you RWNJ types on the day after, if Obama somehow manages re-election despite circumstances that should have meant his defeat--except that the GOP nominated the 2012 version of John Kerry.

It is misleading to tell the country that 100% of tuition is covered when 95% of the population understands that term to mean the cost of attending classes, that is--the most expensive part of attending college (perhaps along with housing, which isn't included either).

Really. Tuition, in the Mass. system, is what most people think of as fees. In Mass., the fees part, about $8000, is what most people would call tuition.

Normally...I think of tuition as tuition. And fees as fees. But maybe that's just me.

Who cares if it's a small amount. He didn't mislead or lie to anyone on this point.

Jesus Christ, dude. WTF was he supposed to say?

"As governor of Massachusetts I instituted a program where HS graduates in the top quarter of their class received free tuition at any Massachusetts public university. Now, bear in mind that this only covers tuition, not side fees like student processing, books, library fee, or anything like that. Really, it's kind of worthless when you think about it. But hey, it's a nice gesture and helps out a lot of families struggling to send kids to college... if they can afford the fees, that is."
