Keeping West Virginia's PROMISE

Not everyone was pleased with legislation passed this year that aimed to limit the growing costs of West Virginia's merit-based PROMISE scholarship program.

But the Charleston Daily Mail reports that "similar programs in other states are dead or dying."

"Michigan's Republican-led Senate left funding for its Promise Scholarship out of its yearly budget," the article said, while one of Idaho's programs is "experiencing some financial difficulties" and "Washington State phased out its Promise Scholarship in 2004."
