President Obama’s Plan for Free Education

In today’s world most people associate success with education, but many Americans are unable to afford to go to college. College is one of the biggest expenses in most peoples lives around the world.

President Obama understands the importance of furthering education, and would think that someone’s potential may be thwarted because of financial troubles. That is why President Obama has just proposed a new program that would pay the tuition for students who plan to attend community college.

Millions of students graduate high school every year, and do not attend college because they cannot afford it. Many high school students who know they cannot attend college, lose interest in their studies at a young age, this results in them dropping out or performing poorly. This proposal will provide an opportunity for millions of people who now have an actual choice of whether or not college is right for them.

It would cover full time and part time students who are able to maintain a 2.5 grade point average for two years of their education.

The government would provide three quarters of the tuition, and the facilities that are participating will hopefully provide the rest of the cost.

Although the program may take some time to start moving, President Obama is coming up with ideas on how to fund such an aspiring idea. The President stated that the plan is that the federal government will fund this idea, but there is no proposal on how much it would actually cost so far.

The idea appears too good to be true, and most people are saying that it is nothing more than just an idea and that “With no details or information on the cost, this seems more like a talking point than a plan,” exclaims Cory Fritz, a spokesman for House Speaker John A. Boehner, Republican of Ohio.

Obama has to get approval by Congress before anything is truly set in motion. A factor that may discourage efforts because Congress may not like the idea of having to provide such a surplus of money for this cause.

While some are skeptical, President Obama is being optimistic by stating, “It’s something that we can accomplish, and it’s something that will train our workforce so that we can compete with anybody in the world.”

This sounds like a great idea, but it does indeed sound like an idea that will need to endure some time before it can be applied. It will help the middle class of this country, and take the pressures off of students who cannot afford or can barely afford to pay tuition. Once it’s available it will shape future generations of this country.
