Free tuition for community college? Gov. Ralph Northam said this week he would be rolling out a plan to deliver just that soon.
The program, which Northam said would be called G3 for “Get skilled, get a job and give back,” would follow the tuition-for-service model of programs like Americorps. The G3 program would allow Virginia residents to attend community colleges and graduate debt-free in exchange for a year spent in a public service job or working in a high-demand field.
