Ability to pay is not a valid objection to this bill. We need an educated electorate. I would prefer if this bill had a non-regressive tiered structure based on chosen curricula. e.g. all students receive a broad educational base to engender critical thinking and cultural literacy plus free tuition in hard sciences (STEM), vocational, and agricultural degrees (or other disciplines in which people find employment using their degrees skills); however, those who eschew practicality for passion in arts and soft sciences (i.e. those degree programs in which people usually do not find their employment) should have to pay a tuition to pursue their desires UNLESS they opt to double-major. While we need political scientists and art historians, we need such passions tempered with practicality to regain America's competitive edge in a global marketplace.
