Scrap EMA (Educational Maintenance Allowance)

Comment 6th July 2010

Please abolish the Educational Maintenance Allowance for 16 to 19 year olds, The money could be better used subsiding Colletge bus fairs and College canteens.

Why does this matter?

The system is widely abused. Most people lie on their applications, contrary to popular belief in your government the system is not means tested and the majority of pupils lie about how much their parents earn, the owning of a small buisness makes it very easy to fraud. We are approching the end of the college year and yet the EMA bounses have just "awarded" to students. The money spent on these "rewards" is equal to the cost of building a medium sized hospital! Do the sums it just isn't worth it, please scrap it.
