President Obama Proposes A Free Community College Initiative

President Obama has announced a proposal to make attending a two-year college free of cost for students who are eligible.What if attending an institution of higher learning was “the norm”, just like attending high school?
This is the plan for the “America’s College Promise” initiative, as announced by President Barack Obama. The initiative will waive the tuition costs of over 1000 of the United States’ community colleges with the prerequisite that students who submit enroll at least under half-time status, maintains a 2.5 grade point average, and shows signs of “steady progress”. The two-year community colleges in participation must have course credits that are transferable to four-year institutions. Under the new initiative, nearly nine-million students are expected to benefit and save thousands of dollars. Reports estimate the proposal’s cost to be $60 billion over the course of the next decade.
