Clinton’s College Calculator Puts a Fine Point on Her Higher Education Plan
Hillary Clinton has unveiled an interactive tool that lets
families calculate how much they would save under her
proposal to eliminate tuition at public colleges and
universities, a plan that new research says would swell the rolls
at state schools while draining enrollment at private ones.
The calculator is rooted in the Democratic presidential candidate’s pitch that in-state tuition be free for students from household earning less than $125,000 a year. Families can see whether they’d benefit from the plan by plugging in their annual income, where they live and what type of college their child plans on attending.
