Closing Thought–11Apr17

The Future Is Education!

I have been calling for some sort of free college education for our citizens…..I have always believed that education was the key to a great society….shame not many see it that way…..

I recently read a plan in the state of Rhode Island that I approve of and should be the same in all 50 states.

Rhode Island Governor Gina M. Raimondo plans today to propose that the state offer two tuition-free years for full-time students in public higher education.

Students at the Community College of Rhode Island would pay no tuition while earning an associate degree. For state residents who start at Rhode Island College or the University of Rhode Island, their junior and senior years would be tuition-free. There is no income limit, although the public system in Rhode Island serves many more low-income students than wealthy students.

  1. I am not up to speed with education in the US. is there no free college education? Over here, it is free in Scotland, then only free in England and Wales if you are VERY poor. Otherwise, you have to endure a ‘student loan’, that takes most of your life to pay back. (Once you consistently earn over £20,000 a year)
    Best wishes, Pete.
