What About that Free Community College Tuition Plan?

retrieved from Education Dive
President Barack Obama’s free community college plan would help students who have the greatest difficulty repaying their student loans, despite the already-low price of a two-year degree, Fortune.com reports.
The student loan default rate for community college students is more than twice that of four-year college students, even though their average annual tuition is $3,347, compared to more than $9,000 for public four-year schools, in state, and more than $31,000 for private schools.
For community college students who take out student loans, the average debt load is $10,000.
