People...we made loans and grants to colleges cheap and the cost of a degree went through the roof. Just imagine how expensive this will be for someone if it is free. Also, free will also drive the weirdest majors you ever heard of.

Education shouldn't be a right.

People need to make their own opportunities. Those who want an education bad enough will work for it.

AC, explain to me where in history has your Political Ideology worked. I am sorry I didn't refer to you as a Marxist or socialist right away. Anytime you are willing to sit down &discuss the far far left bring it on.

Big fan, in magicland where the GOPers wouldn't oppose such an enlightened proposal.
I'd rather my state pay the full cost for tuition and fees at our public colleges and universities. The federal government is too fickle to rely on.

In other words, I don't want to wager the education of my fellow Minnesotans on the whims of some morons with egos from the dirty South.

AC, if you have the proper grades to get into college then yes you have the right to go to college. If you have excellent grades then you would qualify for scholarships and grants that's pay for college thus fulfilling-you're rights.

Publicly funded higher education exists to democratize knowledge. Segregating those who can earn college degrees based on their prior ability to get perfect grades in high school contradicts the mission of every college and university in Minnesota.

On top of that, public colleges and universities have their own admissions criteria (prior academic performance, etc.) that they find fit to enforce. It is a major overreach for our state government to set these standards for our schools.

Where are you getting that idea from. Not every student is capable to go to college or needs to go to college. what's wrong with Minnesota is you're not helping kids go to vo-tech schools & learn trades. College readiness in Minnesota is a joke😈

College readiness is some Poppas idea from hierarchy politicians. Ask anybody who's directly involved in education especially in high school they'll tell you Minnesota does not do enough for trades in other fields that are non-college.😎

The colleges and universities set their own standards. The only colleges which admit 100% of those who apply (and the applicants must have proven their academic ability by earning an HS diploma or GED) are the vo-tech colleges you just praised.

You're just so off base in your argument that I have to set you straight in order to have a reasonable conversation with you.

"Not helping students go to vo-tech colleges to learn trades."
MNSCU operates 24 publicly funded two year colleges which offer these programs.
That's not including the professional training offered by our four year institutions.
So, what?

Because elites don't do any fucking work. The working class does. And for far too long the working class has had their rights stolen. Why not have free college? God forbid we educate people. I forgot, this country is run by reactionaries
