Obama proposes free community college

BY BRYCE GOYER

On Thursday January 8th, President Obama announced a proposal to provide two years of free community college. Obama proposed providing two years of tuition to American students who could maintain good grades at their community college.

This idea was initially brought to light in a video Obama filmed on Wednesday on Air Force One and posted to Facebook. Obama will formally lay out his proposal Friday during a speech in Tennessee. Obama is currently in his pre -State of the Union tour.

It is estimated by the White House that the average community college student will save $3,800 annually with this new proposal.
