Significant cuts in Georgia's popular but expensive HOPE scholarships (which primarily help those at public institutions) have some educators and politicians raising questions about why state funding for programs that help private colleges is remaining stable, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Private college officials note that the funds they receive for educating Georgians free up space at public institutions for other students. But that argument isn't going over at a time of big cuts for HOPE. “It is clear the current political leadership in this state tilts toward private education over public education,” said State Senator Nan Orrock.
