Written in the Flowers

Kinnel, 32, grew up knowing without a doubt that she wanted to be a writer. She got a bachelor’s degree in English from Tougaloo College and went into print journalism. Then in 2005 while interning for the Jackson Free Press, she helped plan and coordinate a political rally. “When we did the rally I knew what my true calling was,” she says. Kinnel got caught up in Continue reading Written in the Flowers

Free College?

For those who  haven’t yet stumbled across a headline, a video or someone talking about Obama’s plan for higher education, we’re sharing it here. Obama would like to see  everyone who is willing to work for it earn two years of free community college. Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan sent out this email last week:

Yesterday, the President announced his “America’s College Promise” proposal. It makes two years of community college free for responsible students.

Yes, you read that right. Under his plan, any student who earns good grades would get two years of community college education at no cost.

Get the facts on yesterday’s announcement, and pass it on to someone who stands to benefit from the President’s proposal.

WATCH: The President announces his community college proposal

Think about this: The President’s new proposal would let students earn the first half of a bachelor’s degree, or get the skills they’ll need when they enter the workforce after school.

When it’s fully implemented, the move could benefit about 9 million students per year. And a full-time community college student could save, on average, $3,800 in tuition each year.

In fact, Tennessee and Chicago have already started similar tuition-free community college programs, and the demand has been amazing: 57,000 students, representing almost 90 percent of Tennessee’s high school graduating class, applied to Tennessee’s program in just its first year.

In order to succeed in the 21st century economy, access to some form of higher education is a must — so it only stands to reason that we should make it more accessible and affordable to more of America’s students.

Let’s help out our next generation of students, and put them on the road to success.

Find out more about the President’s announcement, and make sure to share the news.
