1. Should rich kids be ineligible for college scholarships? This year, UCLA awarded Justin Combs, son of Sean “Diddy” Combs, with a full, $54,000 merit-based scholarship and a spot in the school’s storied football program based on his impressive high school achievements. Justin’s music mogul father was recently named the wealthiest man in hip-hop by Forbes. With California’s state schools facing deep cuts, UCLA’s decision to offer Justin a chunk of its scarce resources is being widely criticized.

    Should the Combs clan give back the money? Or should the size of Justin’s dad’s bank account even matter?
