Presidential Candidate Buttigieg's Tuition-Free College Plan

Last week, South Bend mayor and candidate for the Democratic nomination for president Pete Buttigieg (D-IN) released his tuition-free college plan to help with college affordability. From Inside Higher Education: "The proposal would make public colleges tuition-free for the 80 percent of students who have annual family incomes of $100,000 or less. The next 10 percent of students, from families earning $100,000 to $150,000 per year, would receive public college tuition subsidies on a sliding scale, under the plan... Buttigieg also proposed to increase the award amounts for federal Pell Grants, to help cover nontuition costs such as housing and transportation."
