President proposes publicly funded community college for all – Nation – Breaking news and local coverage from the Omaha World-Herald

The White House says details on how the president proposes to pay for the plan will come next month.

“I want to make it free,” Obama said at a community college in Tennessee, where he described such schools as a “central pathway” to the middle class. “Community college should be free for those willing to work for it because, in America, a quality education should not be a privilege that is reserved for a few,” he said.

This reminds me of other such proposals.

You need to find the money first, then build the program.

I’m for providing a post high school education to all.

But it needs to be fine in a well thought out manner.
