My roommate just told me about her little sister being invited to a prestigious leadership camp that costs a lot of money. Her parents are really thinking about sending her because it is such an "honor". I remember getting a lot of those invitations in the mail and my parents throwing them in the trash ( because we couldn't afford them even if they were worthwhile). I do remember thinking I had been given a big honor by being chosen.
So, can/should for profit businesses be able to get student addresses simply by asking teachers to nominate students? Seems that information should be confidential. Do they really give scholarships to financially needy students?
