Dr. Goldrick-Rab is Recognized by The New York Times for her Proposal to Lower College Tuition
The New York Times recently quoted Dr. Goldrick-Rab in an article. The article mentioned her recent proposal to make the first two years of postsecondary education or as Dr. Goldrick-Rab refers to as “Grades 13 and 14,” free to all students attending community colleges and four-year state schools.
Dr. Goldrick-Rab views her idea as a way to increase graduation rates among lower-income students and decrease the financial strain of higher education altogether, “When students are able to focus on college, and not work, they graduate.”
The article reflects on America’s past success with low tuition and current efforts to lower post-secondary tuition.
