The government does not always waste money

There’s quite a strong perspective out there that the government can always be counted upon to waste money. Of course, private businesses waste money all the time, too. If you want organizations to stop wasting money, you can stop having organizations; or organizations run by humans. Anyway, I learned today that NCSU has a “Veterans Affairs Certifying Official” that keeps track of students who’s education is funded by the GI Bill. Turns out that if you are on the GI Bill and you fail a class due to lack of attendance, you have to pay back the government the portion of your tuition to cover that class. I love that! And, in case you are curious, looks like I have a student who’s going to have to repay the government a good chunk of change.
