Free Tuition (Debt Free College Education)

In a highly competitive global economy, America needs the best-educated workforce in the world. It is counter-productive to the best interests of our country and our future, that hundreds of thousands of bright young people cannot afford to go to college, and that millions of others leave school with a mountain of debt that burdens them for decades. That is not a path to the future; that oppression must end.

American Socialists must fight to make sure that every American who studies hard in school can continue on to college regardless of how much money their parents make and without going deeply into debt.
