About "Free Community College (AFF)"
The rising cost of college education and the rising burdens of college debt are a double threat to the current generation of young people. But the fact that post-secondary education is key to good jobs in this country still remains. Young people need a solution to this dilemma, and fortunately it has already been proposed; all we need is for Congress to enact it: The America’s College Promise Act (ACPA).
Not only has it been proposed, but it was proposed back during the Truman Administration in 1947 and proposed again by Pres. Obama before he left office. Modeled after successful demonstration of the same principle at the state level in Tennessee, the ACPA would have the federal government pay for 3/4 of the cost of two-year community college for all high school graduates, with the States paying the remaining 1/4 of the cost. Evidence shows the plan would be used by 9 million students and save them an average of $3,800 per year, substantially reducing their potential debt burden and substantially increasing the college completion rate and availability of good jobs for millions of Americans.
There is a negative response to this case, coming up next week.
