Compelling idea


So I heard this idea on the news.  It was that we take all education dollars from the federal government and use it all to pay for all public college tuition, which makes college free for anyone who wanted to go to college.  It would have massive drawbacks, not the least of all on the diversity at private colleges.  Operationally, it would be a nightmare with trying to control costs, decide who gets what, being able to deal with the influx of students, etc.  But it is a very thought-provoking idea.
