President Obama Announces Free Community College Plan

President Obama has proposed making two years of community college tuition-free for all. That’s an excellent plan. Too many young people are priced out of any higher educAtion, and this removes affordability as an obstacle.

Community colleges were originally underwritten by state and local governments to expand access, so this plan restores the original purpose of the community college. Our hope would be that this plan would not only open doors of higher education to many students, but would also undercut predatory for-profit online “universities” including other colleges in the country and around the world.
