Let’s not forget that Joe Biden’s old boss, Barack Obama, promised to close Guantanamo Bay by the end of his first year in office, and also claimed he’d build a nationwide high-speed rail system. So when Joe Biden promises that community college will be “free,” we’ll believe it when we see it.
Biden’s also good at making arguments against the teachers’ unions without seeming to know it. As we reported Wednesday, Biden said it was unacceptable that students were sitting in cars in library parking lots so they could use the WiFi to attend school virtually. So let’s open up the schools in January, OK? An analysis showed that it was teachers’ unions and politics and not safety most closely linked to school closings.
Now Biden is telling us that 12 years of school isn’t enough in 21st Century America. Why is that? What is it about public schools that makes another two or four years in a community college mandatory to prepare a student for the workforce?
In the 21st century, twelve years of school isn’t enough. That’s why under the Biden-Harris plan, community college will be free — and public colleges and universities will be tuition-free for families earning less than $125,000 a year.

It’s good that he specified public colleges, because without collecting tuition, how is Harvard going to pay Elizabeth Warren $430,000 to teach two classes? It’s good of all of those faculty members to teach for free.
"free" = taxpayers pay for it.

It's NEVER free. Never. You're old enough to know that.

The man is old.
Perhaps 16 years of school could be done in 12 if we improved school.

It's enough if they're educated on life skills. Get out of the pocket of the teachers unions and think afresh.

But public school didnt even teach people to stay out of crushing debt, maybe it failed?

maybe we should be look at the reason 12 years of school produces simpletons that read at a 5th grade level, suck at math, and can't think critically. https://t.co/DpEE1ymKuC

If they could read and comprehend at a higher level, colleges would not be able to charge them $60K a year for a "studies" degree.

A college degree is already worthless. This 'plan' will only make it more so.

Victims of #WokeLore indoctrination of public schools which no longer require ACT or SAT. No civics classes. No ability to handle any failure. Public schools wish to continue to produce weak minded youth robots for the elite.

Because Public Unions, the reason schools are no longer able to actually educate, really need more of our money, as a “reward”.

Decertify teacher unions & use university endowments to pay off tuition loans as reparations for crappy education.
— Cyril Matthews (@cnmatthews) December 24, 2020
That would force Democrats to actually take on their shitty teacher unions that don't teach.
How would they ever get into office if they didn't have legions of people brainwashing partisan politics into American children.
Making American Children thinkers is bad for biz

What he is saying is more indoctrination is needed to complete an irreversible comrade.

We keep having our money fleeced from us to support what amount to little more than indoctrination camps. Abolishing the Dept. of Ed is the moderate position here when you start asking where the money has *really* been funneled to. pic.twitter.com/gWkDcYp0cx

We need to end the notion that college is a ticket to the middle class – see student debt for proof. We need to teach kids how to make a living and that, more often than not, does not require college.

The irreparable damage begins in Kindergarten. By high school they are less than 50% competent in all subject areas. They complain college is too hard and if you fail them they destroy your reputation. This is the average 20 something of 2020. The future is bleak.
— Jeannine Richardson (@COPDLiving) December 24, 2020
My thoughts exactly. 12 years of school should be plenty for most people. Judging by the garbage my daughter brought home, they want to keep them stupid so they can throw more money at college which most of them will fail.

Instead of building a nationwide WiFi network, let’s just reopen the schools. And instead of making community college free, how about making a K-12 education worth something again? Maybe teach civics for real instead of using it as a cover to teach critical race theory and oppression studes.
