Leftist Group Says Free College Will Benefit Rich More Than Poor

Here’s more proof that no matter how much you give away for free, progressives will still think you’re being unfair. Case in point: free public college tuition.

The campaign promise for free higher education has become one of the most sought-after freebies by Millennials from Bernie Sanders’ campaign, but according to Campus Reform, the leftist Brookings Institute says it’ll still be unfair.

Brookings’ author Matthew Chingos explains, “The non-tuition costs of attending college, including living expenses, are larger than the costs of tuition and fees for most students. Free college, which does not address these expenses, leaves families from the bottom half of the income distribution with nearly $18 billion in annual out-of-pocket college costs that would not be covered by existing federal, state, and institutional grant programs.”

In other words, it's not fair to offer free tuition if you're not going to provide the entire college experience for free as well.

Plus, Brookings points out, students from wealthier families tend to be attracted to more expensive universities with higher levels of teaching than students from poorer families, regardless of tuition costs. Brookings believes this means wealthier students would get a better free education than others.

Good grief.
