Free Community College for All


President Barack Obama wants to make the first two years of community college free for what he calls “responsible students” who are “willing to work for it.” It’s being called “America’s College Promise.” This week on the podcast we examine the prospect of free community college for all. Our guest, Rachel Fishman, is a policy analyst for the New America Foundation who thinks America’s College Promise is unlikely to be approved by Congress but its message  could still have a positive impact on the higher ed system.
