"The Path To Free College" By Michelle Miller-Adams

As the cost of college continues to climb beyond the reach of many, and the racial divide both deepens and widens, the idea of tuition-free college gains traction across the aisle and around the country.

Though we lack practical experience with such a plan at the national level, local organizations and state governments have been experimenting with free college models for over fifteen years.

What lessons have they learned that might serve the Biden administration as they craft such a plan? Michelle Miller-Adams is a member of the Biden-Harris education policy committee and is an advocate for a tuition-free model. Her new book is "The Path to Free College: In Pursuit of Access, Equity, and Prosperity."
