1. Restores funding through tax fairness. Clinton has put forward a robust federal funding program to provide states with increasingly large matching grants to correct state disinvestment in public higher education—the root cause of today’s high costs of attendance. The cost of the New College Compact will be entirely covered by closing tax loopholes for the rich.
2. Offers free and more affordable tuition. Under Hillary’s plan, we won’t end up with another $1.3 trillion student debt mess because in-state public colleges and universities, and all community colleges, will be tuition-free for low- and middle-income families.
