NY will be the first state to offer free college tuition to students after state Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed legislation Wednesday.
The issue of making public higher education "free" should also be seen in the broader context of the continuing higher education policy debate in this country and the importance of finding solutions that meet the very real financial challenges that the sector faces.
But the report's authors, both of whom work at public universities, say it is based on a comprehensive analysis of federal data and state-specific simulations in 24 states. Each extra year costs you time and money.
"They're trying to make the counterintuitive case that expensive schools are cheaper than low-priced schools".
"He's running. It's pretty clear", said University of Maryland political scientist Robert Koulish, who said the second-term governor appears to be positioning himself as a hybrid: a centrist in the mold of Clinton who supports social policies championed by liberals like Sanders. So if you're getting tuition-free, talk to your advisor all the time.
Will tuition go up for those who don't get the scholarship?
Enrollment at CCC dipped slightly a year ago, so it's possible numbers might see an increase come next semester.
Stanley said Oswego State has a long-standing commitment to higher education access, college completion and cost predictability. The Degrees Not Debt Scholarships are more of a challenge. A professor at the University of Chicago Law School, Daniel J. Hemel, floated the question of whether the stay-in-New York requirement risks violating something called the Dormant Commerce Clause, a restriction implied by the Commerce Clause of the Constitution and limiting the states from erecting their own obstacles to interstate commerce. It would be up to the state to set the percentage and decide whether that figure should vary for different types of public institutions. Also, to ensure that assets "stay in state" (in Cuomo's words), the legislation requires that Excelsior recipients continue to live and work in New York State after they graduate - one year of residence for every year that they received the scholarship. More than one-third of CUNY students are part-time. Education aid will also be increased by 1.1 billion dollars. When state schools are "free", more people will apply.
Mr. Nassirian objected to the idea that states that have been disinvesting for decades in their public colleges should privatize them even more based on the argument that private colleges can get better results.
Florida has no plans to change their tuition coverage.
"Why should New Yorkers pay for your college education and then you pick up and you move to California?"
These new developments will test the fortitude and will of many private institutions in the coming years. Student debt forgiveness or more accessible payment plans should be integrated into these programs. Some experts are concerned the plan would actually do little to help the neediest students, whose tuition is already covered by other aid. The only thing the government asks is that the students stay in NY for four years after they graduate.
The state budget agreed upon by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state Legislature will include a program to make CUNY and SUNY colleges and universities tuition-free for families making up to $125,000 a year, which Cuomo highlighted in last year's State of the State address. Instead, sounding more like President Trump than the Democrats Clinton and Sanders that Cuomo said he wanted emulate, the governor took a swipe at the New York Times.
Forget that last idea, too. As colleges battle over limited resources, such tensions are likely to arise in other states.
"If you were to read the Times editorial, my father wouldn't be governor, I wouldn't be governor once, let alone re-elected", Cuomo said.
The state has appealed that ruling to the 8th US Circuit Court of Appeals, which had not weighed in as of mid-afternoon. Ward's attorneys have argued he is a diagnosed schizophrenic with no rational understanding of his impending execution.
He's been playing well for us the entire season. "But our inside guys have played well in the NCAA tournament". Our team has been exposed to everything: size, athleticism, winning, losing, good, bad, suspensions.
Bamberger's lawyers also argued that any damages awarded to the protesters in the case should be paid by Trump or his campaign. Trump could be heard saying "get 'em out of here" from the stage at that rally.
