Clinton's Big Plan for Higher Ed

Inside Higher Ed
August 10th, 2015

Hillary Clinton will today unveil a massive plan to make higher education more affordable, student loan debt less burdensome and states accountable for supporting their public colleges. The plan -- which would cost $350 billion over 10 years -- is one that campaign officials say will be central to her candidacy for the presidency.
The plan touches on many other aspects of higher education policy beyond tuition and state support, promising lower interest rates on student loans, tougher rules for for-profit higher education, new grants for private colleges that have small endowments and serve large numbers of low-income and minority students, and a major expansion of AmeriCorps, through which those who perform national service may receive funds for college or repay student loans.
