  1. It would be nice if Alabama gave more toward seniors pursuing a college degree. Most states offer waivers for a 4 year degree and 50 percent deductions on books. Alabama can do more toward education.

    1. I think Alabama could easily give more to seniors pursuing a college degree by providing two more years of tuition waiver. The purchase of books should be the responsibility of the person pursuing the degree. That is a good compromise between the needs of both parties.

    2. I agree that Ala needs to do more. I would like to point out that ATHENS STATE UNIVSITY is not on the list. Athens is a 2yr SENIOR college (Junior and Senior years) that follows the above tuition discount. I know becasue I took advantage of it to get a BA. It applies to their online courses as well.

  2. I too, would like to see more Colleges on the list.. UAB, would be a good one to have if a higher degree is wanted

  3. When you look and listen to many Alabamians it's obvious that the state could care less about education so why would they give seniors any special consideration.

  4. Does anyone know of a 4 year institution that offers a program for seniors?

    A written perfectly and hot and cold was very much easy to understand.

  6. If our government takes serious step for improving woman education then we can easily make a good society because woman play very important role for developing a good nation. So we should to care this education. You should to buy essay and complete your writing work.
