Not So “Free”April 11, 2017 | :

It’s been interesting to listen to the debate over Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposal to give students from middle-class families free tuition at SUNY schools.
As is the case with many discussions these days, people tend to spout off about it without really educating themselves as to the issues at play. Many seemed to think it means “free” college for all, not realizing that it would only cover tuition and not room-and-board, which is the lion’s share of student costs these days.
