A hundred, hundred and fifty years ago, incredibly brave Americans said, ‘You know what, working class kids, low-income kids, should not have to work in the factories or on the farms. Like rich kids, they deserve to get a free education.’ And that free education, of extraordinary accomplishment, was from first grade to twelfth grade. The world has changed. This is 2016. In many ways, a college degree today is equivalent to what a high school degree was 50, 60 years ago. So yeah, I do believe that when we talk about public education in America today, in a rapidly changing world, we should have free tuition at public colleges and universities. That should be a right of all Americans, regardless of the income of their families.
If the best aspects of our culture today came from dreaming big 50 years ago and 100 years ago, we owe it to future Americans to dream big now! Seriously, where would we be without their big, anti-establishment dreams?
