My opinion is that students shouldn't have to pay for the costs of applying to colleges, it seems a bit unnecessary, but I understand if it seems like an unnecessary cost to the regional government.

I see your point, and maybe we're debating over semantics, but the fact that about 1 million children are functionally homeless to me is a crisis.

Do SATs even exist in our parallel universe?

I know the great beheading occurred in 2004, and the SAT's/ACT's were existent then, so I don't see why they wouldn't exist now.

I'm not sure the IDS should be paying for any of this, though paying for SATs/ACTs seems more reasonable than paying for college admission, as the bill seems to read as saying.

I have to agree with Emperor Maxwell, much as I wish we could pay on this matter.

Well, I agreed to sponsor this because it grates me that these two privately administered tests are absolutely necessary for college admission and its conceivable that their costs could be a high enough barrier to stop someone from entering college. Beyond that, I don't know what the original sponsor was thinking.

I'm opposed to subsidizing the College Board or any other testing service. I understand the idea behind this, but it will just line their pockets more than anything. Many colleges are going away from the SAT anyway.
