Pay Students to Study
Bunker Hill Community College teacher Wick Sloane says his students come to school hungry. Many are unemployed, most have a family to care for, and some are struggling with homelessness. Students are exahausted and hungry by the time they make it to classes. Sloane's idea is to flip the federal Work-Study Program into a Study-Work Program, paying students by the hour to study. We talk with him about his idea.
