Michigan introduces plan for free college tuition

Michigan is planning on offering a plan for free tuition. Don’t believe me? Check it out here.

Here’s a snippet from the article:

The plan would require university students to pay four percent of their future income for five years for each year they attend school without paying tuition. The rate would be lowered to two percent for community college students.

Here’s why, on the surface, I think it’s a good idea: it finally offers some incentive for the university to actually get you prepared to have a good job after you graduate. Therefore, whether you want to major in basket-weaving or computer programming, they’re going to make sure you’re the best at your practice to get a good paying job.
