SKY VALLEY CHRONICLE: PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER BERNIE SANDERS WILL UNVEIL BILL TO MAKE PUBLIC COLLEGE TUITION FREE
Career College Central Summary:
Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders will introduce legislation Tuesday that would make public college tuition-free in the United States.
In a statement released Sunday Sanders said, "We live in a highly competitive global economy and, if our economy is to be strong, we need the best-educated work force in the world. That will not happen if, every year, hundreds of thousands of bright young people cannot afford to go to college, and if millions more leave school deeply in debt."
The Vermont senator's plan will provide tuition-free higher education to students at public four-year colleges and is modeled after the way some European nations have done it for years.
Sanders points out that countries like Germany, Denmark, Sweden and more nations are providing free or inexpensive higher education for their young people because they understand the importance of investing in their youth and America should be doing the same.
