On January 9th 2015, President Obama announced a plan to make all community colleges free of tuition for all students. The plan is aimed at middle and lower income families whose children will attend community colleges. It is estimated that roughly 8 million American families will be benefited from this plan.
The average private college tuition costs over $42,000 per year. That amount is how much the average middle and low income families earn per year. Most middle and low income families cannot afford even the public universities let alone the private college. They barely earn enough to make an ends meet. The students who are eager but born into impoverished families, will be benefited from this plan greatly.
