Community College Now Free in Tennessee
Starting in Fall 2015, all high school graduates in the state of Tennessee now qualify for free in-state tuition at two-year colleges across the state. via Inside Higher Ed:
Governor Haslam, a Republican, has pushed the plan as a key way for the state to encourage a larger share of the population to seek college credentials. The idea of free community college tuition has also been discussed in other states, but the Tennessee plan — with the strong advocacy of a governor — has attracted attention nationally and is now being adopted.
Kinda cool, and good news for the guy with 13 kids.
