    I'd like to see the surveillance video, and whether it shows Bianca looking active and healthy.

    It's weird, sometimes you think you know something, like she was severely beaten, and it turns out to be a red herring and incorrect.

    Wonder how the financial aid thing went. Was it encouraging - or did he feel like it wasn't going to happen.

    I wonder if the college uses the FAFSA...a lot of schools do now, it's the only program that many will use to determine financial aid. You cannot apply for loans through FAFSA with any drug possession or felony charge.

    He could get private loans, but that would require him to have a decent credit score, and that doesn't happen when you're poor, usually.

    One of the only ways to beat this is to provide a certain number or a certain time period worth of clean drug screens and no further problems with the law.

    I went and checked my paperwork.

    ETA: He might not have had to print any financial aid paperwork from home. The paperwork that he needed might have related to his convictions, sentencings, and criminal record since. Those are the things that a financial aid officer would have had to see in order to determine if he was eligible for any type of financial aid at all.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    Not with the State, probably - but there are a lot of convicted felons who work in private nonprofits - their story is compelling because they're turned their lives around so dramatically.

    Programs to turn around young people headed for a life of crime, or a life on the streets, that kind of thing.

    I don't see any crimes related to children on his record, or any violent crimes, I don't think.

    Scholarships maybe? I know there are scholarships for every kind of thing - B students who are going in to business, students from a particular high school, etc. I would bet there are probably scholarships for people who have been offenders before and want to better their lives.

    Was the child actually seen on surveillance at the school with the dad?

    But many of them are federally sponsored, and federal money goes away with a drug conviction. Other felonies, you can get scholarships, not with drug felonies. America's war on drugs and all.

    If they didn't use the FAFSA, he might have been able to apply for more, but if the college does use FAFSA, he would have been told right off the bat that there was nothing available to him.

    I'm sure that Wayne would use FAFSA,every other local college here does. I 'm familiar with the process as I was a FAFSA college student for a time years back.

    And not offer private scholarships too?

    You can get federal aid, and you can additionally apply for scholarships from various businesses or charities or private individuals, or PTA, etc. here.

    Secondary teachers generally major/minor in specific subject areas, i.e. English, History, Foreign Language, Biology, etc. Most elementary teachers focus on a particular age/grade level, i.e. Early Childhood, Lower Elementary, Upper Elementary with group majors/minors that might include Science/Social Studies, Reading/Language Arts, Music, Art, Physical Education, etc. I was certified to teach all subjects in Grades 7 and 8, English/Language Arts/Journalism Grades 9-12.

    I wondered about that, too. This is the first that I've heard of it.

    He seems less focused at this point than that - he's not even sure whether to head toward teaching or social work, so I don't see that he's got a narrow focus yet.

    Oh I'm sure they use scholarships also. Criminal Rehabilitation programs are proby also available. We are talking the City of Detroit here where crime stats are high. With the college being downtown I'm sure there are options available for people with past criminal history.

    At this point with the convictions I'm not sure he would have had FAFSA assistance at all, just speculating on what how he was planning on paying for school with all these dependants and baby mamas & without a job as I have not heard of him being employed.
