Good for her! Nothing worse than children being failed in school.

It's sad that her teachers failed her, but since when it is someone else's job to find scholarships for students?  I had to find my own.  I considered myself lucky anytime anyone gave me a heads up.

Nowadays school guidance counselors are given information and tons of documentation is sent to them in an effort to match children up with scholarship offers. The system is now also set up where sometimes only guidance counselors can submit transcripts and other documentation to get certain scholarships and/or award packages. Many times, they fail and when families find out it's often past deadlines.

Or in the case of my child's school, only certain children are helped while others are intentionally left behind so I completely understand her anger. Because I have an older child who went to school in a different area, I know about some of these things because she was burned by a lackluster counselor as well. The college counselor kept apologizing because she said she assumed the HS counselor helped because that's who they reach out to since children attend the college from all over the country. They can't get to every child individually nationwide so this helps them. Because the HS counselor did a piss poor job, the college counselor took the time to explain it to us and helped get adequate financing.

I promised never again. I'm highly active with college recruiting with my other child.

Now that student has learned one of the best lessons in life.  If you don't look out for yourself, no one else is.  It's up to you to find the uni and the scholarships/grants/funding.  It's also the lesson I learned when helping my father navigate through his care when he had cancer, and prior to my attending school to become a nurse.  I now tell my patient's the they need to look out for themselves and not count on others to do it for them.
