Amy Klobuchar Releases Plan for Higher Education

U.S. Senator and candidate for the Democratic nomination for the presidency Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) released a plan for higher education that includes tuition-free community college and an expansion of Pell Grants. From Inside Higher Education, on the tuition-free community college portion of the plan: "The feds would match $3 for every $1 from states for subsidies for students who qualify for in-state tuition, are enrolled at least half-time and maintain satisfactory academic progress. The plan would cover one-year certificates and associate degrees, as well as technical certifications and industry-recognized credentials. To be eligible, states would be required to maintain their support for higher education, limit tuition hikes and better ensure that students can transfer to four-year programs."
