Fund Aid for Private SchoolsMarch 28, 2017 | :
by Michael Goot
We’ve supported Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Excelsior Scholarship proposal, which would make state colleges and universities tuition-free for many students from middle-income families, but on second thought, there is a better way.
Cuomo’s proposal leaves out the state’s private colleges, and that is a mistake. The great strength of New York’s higher education system is that it comprises both excellent state schools and excellent private colleges that offer their own unique programs and campus cultures.
