Will free college offer catch fire? NY details raise doubts

Tennessee and OR already offer free in-state tuition at community colleges.

"But in order to make it free, the additional amount of money the General Assembly or students would have to come up with would be very high", she said. And the momentum is not limited to California.

The plan would cover tuition at public colleges for students whose families earn $125,000 or less.

Brean: "What is the college and what are you doing to get students to graduate in four years?" It does not pay a student's full scholarship - only what federal, state, private and institutional grants do not cover.

That may not seem like a lot, and it's nothing near what Stanton Glantz would like to see.

Attorney calls for Georgia officers to be criminally charged
Eyewitness, Kenneth Dillard, shot the first video that surfaced and said he was shocked by what he witnessed. The officer wrote in the report that Hollins was acting strangely and his vehicle smelled of marijuana.

"The politics and the public awareness around this issue have dramatically shifted since past year", Glantz said. "You'd get to take your loans out like anyone else".

Other concerns about the NY plan are more generic.

"A 10 percent decrease in our undergraduate, main campus enrollment equates to approximately $3.3 million annually in net tuition revenue", Casamento said in the memo.

Some critics say even that is not enough. "Then we have need-based scholarships that's based on your FAFSA application and your application for the calculation of the expected family contribution". And then there are the books that they need.

The New York Times endorsed both Cuomo and his father, Mario Cuomo for governor during their multiple election campaigns.

April the giraffe welcomes much-anticipated calf
A Farmington, New Hampshire, songwriter even posted a music video on YouTube called, "I'm Going Crazy Waiting (For A Giraffe)". Ever since April the giraffe went viral, zoo officials have said they would hold a social media contest to name the newborn.

The council's public-relations push has been supported by a number of funders, including the Carnegie Corporation of NY, the Lumina Foundation for Education, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. McMahon says he does not believe its inherently wrong to require a residency commitment in exchange for the tuition. The part of the Assembly package drawing the most attention, is the Degrees Not Debt scholarships.

Most states already have a scholarship fund, like New York's Tuition Assistance Program, that can be used for either public or private colleges, Mr. Zumeta said.

Daniel Tramuta, associate vice president for Enrollment Services at Fredonia and President of the SUNYCEO Executive Committee, agrees that for the first year, it'll be hard to tell exactly what effect this has on the institution, stating that had the budget been passed a few months earlier, perhaps a few more students would have chosen Fredonia, but being so close to the acceptance deadline, probably no one will be making that last-minute switch. The Assembly has proposed phasing it in over five years, at 20 percent each year. And they must live and work in NY for as many years as they received the scholarship. A professor at the University of Chicago Law School, Daniel J. Hemel, floated the question of whether the stay-in-New York requirement risks violating something called the "Dormant Commerce Clause", a restriction implied by the Commerce Clause of the Constitution and limiting the states from erecting their own obstacles to interstate commerce. Thus, the next step for Cuomo and the educational institutions in NY is to prove that the pioneering project will work.

He was particularly critical of New York's "last-dollar" tuition-only setup, which would keep costs relatively low — an estimated $163 million a year — by paying the tuition only after awards from state and federal sources are applied. Education gets squeezed. The universities will try to claw back the private money with dorm fees, activities fees and other charges that don't officially count as tuition, but still quality suffers. The result will be that the system becomes even more dependent on loans and even more inaccessible to students whose families lack the necessary resources to pay mounting prices.

New York, though, has always been a gateway to the rest of America, not a dead end. For those middle class kids just now applying and starting college I think this is a great tool for them to use.

Tax deadline: Is Trump paying his fair share?
Protesters are taking to the streets across the country to demand that President Donald Trump release his tax returns. Liberals and anti-Trump conservatives alike joined the roughly 100 protests held across the country . "We do care.

"Of all the important changes in public policy we've seen enacted in NY, perhaps in living memory, this one is the most significant change to have received virtually no serious study or debate", McMahon said.
