Grades Important Factor For Student Aid: Tories
Ontario's Tories want university and college students' marks to determine if they get money from the province.
Progressive Conservative Training, Colleges and Universities Critic MPP Rob Leone says any form of student aid should be given to those with top marks. The former professor also wants students to prove they're putting any money given towards education.
This is all part of a PC bid to scrap the Liberals 30 per cent tuition grant. Leone underlines that the majority of Ontario students don't qualify for the grant, pointing specifically to single parents who are going back to school.
Leone adds schools should be the ones administering financial aid since they know their students better.
