Obama to Propose Two Free Years of Community College
As we have learned, when a Democrat uses the word free, they actually mean bend over and smile taxpayers. And now Barack is to propose in his upcoming State of Disunion Speech, free college tuition for community college students.
"What I’d like to do is to see the first two years of community college free for everybody who’s willing to work for it."His proposal would make two years free for students with a C+ average who attend school at least half-time and who are making “steady progress” toward their degree.
And what about the free part? Federal funding would cover three-quarters of the average cost of community college, and Obama is asking states to pick up the rest of the tab. (Lean Forward Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer).
Here's the best part:
Community colleges must also adopt “promising and evidence-based institutional reforms to improve student outcomes". Reforms and improved student outcomes in the same sentence means just one thing in Obama's America, Federal Mandated Rules and Race Based Outcome.
What we will get is is another delusional liberal dream program, our tax money haplessly given away to try and educate ghetto rats while they wile away their free time in weave salons or work on their rap careers while wasting educator's time and resources better used for responsible students.
While a program like this could be helpful for single mothers trying to make a life for them and their family, or the returning Veteran, it should be exclusive. But like everything the liberal comes up with it will be another bloated federally directed affirmative action, administrative nightmare falling directly on the overtaxed taxpayers and states already struggling with and other federal mandates.
