What’s Next in the Fight for Public Higher Ed?

On January 3, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a plan to make New York State and City colleges tuition-free for all students whose families earn less than $125,000 per year. Cuomo made the announcement while standing alongside Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who had made free college tuition and reduced student debt a key part of his presidential campaign. Sanders later tweeted that “If New York makes public colleges and universities tuition-free, mark my words, state after state will follow.”
