Free Community College for 2 Years? President Obama Hopes So

From the White House: Today, the President unveiled a new proposal: Make two years of community college free for responsible students across America.

In our growing global economy, Americans need to have more knowledge and more skills to compete — by 2020, an estimated 35 percent of job openings will require at least a bachelor’s degree, and 30 percent will require some college or an associate’s degree.┬áStudents should be able to get the knowledge and the skills they need without taking on decades’ worth of student debt.
