In today’s economy, having a college degree can mean the difference between “You’re hired” and the silent treatment.
There’s no denying it — having a college education sets you apart.
That’s why President Obama’s plan to make community college free for every student that puts in the effort is such a great idea. It gives every student that works hard the opportunity to go to college and succeed, regardless of financial circumstance.
A 21st century economy requires workers to be more skilled, more adaptable, and better educated than ever before.
American workers are the best in the world — and broad access to higher education is one of the best ways we can stay competitive. We shouldn’t be limiting access to college based solely on who can already afford to pay or take on huge student loans.
Let’s stand up for expanding this opportunity to every student that’s willing to work for it — join in now:
