Should Public College Be Tuition-Free?
Free college programs come in different forms but generally refer to the government picking up the tab for tuition costs, while students pay for other expenses such as room and board. There are currently around 17 million students in undergraduate programs in the United States. For more information, see our "Free College - Top 3 Pros and Cons" article.
Candidates who are in favor of any version of free college, including tuition-free community college, tuition-free four-year degrees, and two years tuition-free at a four-year school, are considered "PRO" to this question.
