Panning The Plan

Sorry, kids:
“I would love to see the Clinton administration come and make college free for students coming from families earning less than $125,000,” Professor Nicholas Dirks says. “But I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

Dirks spoke at a panel discussion on the topic of “Who Pays For World-Class Universities?” during the Times Higher Education (THE) World Academic Summit.

“[I]f such a thing came to be, there would be a real concerted effort to control parts of some of the great research institutions that are public in ways that might compromise their capacity to compete at the highest level,” he added, noting as well that implementing Clinton’s plan would be a “complicated political process” since state governments oversee universities.
If you want free stuff, somebody always has to give something else up...
