Hillary Clinton Rolls Out New College Plan


Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday at Exeter High School unveiled a $350 billion plan aimed at making college more affordable and reducing the crushing burden of student debt. “I believe one of the single biggest ways we can raise incomes is by making college affordable and available to every American. So today, I’m laying out a plan to do just that,” said Clinton. In her “New College Compact” Clinton proposes steps to reduce the cost of four-year public schools, make two-year community colleges tuition-free and cut student loan interest rates, according to campaign aides. The proposal centers on a $200 billion federal incentive system aimed at encouraging states to expand their investments in higher education and cut overall student costs. States that guarantee no-loan tuition at four-year public schools and free tuition at community colleges would be eligible to receive federal funds.
