As part of her 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton on Monday announced her so-called “New College Compact” — a plan for debt-free college.
The Washington Post reported that Clinton has said this college access and affordability plan is the most detailed she has unveiled in this campaign.
“We need to make a quality education affordable and available to everyone willing to work for it without saddling them with decades of debt,” Clinton said, announcing the plan in Exeter, N.H, the Post reported.
Clinton’s plan would allow students to go to a four-year, in-state public school and not have to borrow to pay tuition. In recent years, student loan debt has exploded to more that $1.2 trillion surpassing America’s credit card debt.
