Free Community College
Reps. Bobby Scott (VA) and Linda Sanchez (CA) have introduced a bill to help make higher education more affordable. The bill would make Community College free for students who maintain a GPA of 2.5 and provide federal funds to cover most of the cost. It includes provisions that could offer additional funds. It does not appear this will become law anytime soon, but it does highlight the growing recognition of the importance of making higher education accessible to all Americans.
Tell your Congressperson that community colleges need funding and that funding includes resources for faculty and staff. Add your personal story about how a lack of resources has impacted your students. We are at the core of higher education, and we need to have our voices heard.
