One law that we opposed that did become law was one that lowers the Grade Point Average requirement for the HOPE scholarship. We believe that lowering the GPA requirement for HOPE sends a bad message to pupils that they only need to do the bare minimum in class in order to get the state’s main scholarship. There is a reason why graduates in most states (including South Carolina) don’t get a scholarship when they have a 2.994 GPA or lower: colleges want to see if you are serious about your education or not.
