Free Public Education

Preschool for two-to-five-year-olds should be available free of charge for all families. And everyone who qualifies for entrance to public higher educational institutions or technical schools should be able to attend tuition-free.

From Runaway Inequality: An Activist's Guide to Economic Justice

Free higher education Providing more Americans with a quality education will produce more knowledgeable citizens and more productive workers. And yet young people are being squeezed out of college by ever-rising costs. Once again, we should follow the lead of other developed nations and eliminate tuition at all public colleges and universities. Revenue from the financial transaction tax mentioned above could more than cover the costs

Not only would this greatly broaden access to higher education for low-income students, it would eliminate the enormous student loans that now burden so many young people. What’s more, free higher education would lead to a building and hiring boom on college campuses, creating jobs that can’t be shipped abroad.
