The Escalating Cost of College
The cost of college is skyrocketing today, and student debt exceeds $1.6 trillion.
Just as easy credit for home buyers led to unrealistically high home prices, easy credit for students has enabled college tuition that is too high.
Strategic Educational Credits
We need to provide credits that fully pay for schools offering a full year’s tuition for $10,000 or less.
The program would not be for schools where the cost of tuition is higher than $10,000.
The program would encourage colleges to find a way to lower their tuition to $10,000.
Such a program would drive down the cost of college and serve to encourage a wide variety of cost-effective educational options that lead to jobs.
