Comment on Will free college offer catch fire? NY details raise doubts by RE

In Education, Emerging Technology, Government, Legal by Long Island Business NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , , ,

Will New York’s first-in-the-nation free tuition program for middle-class college students spread to other states? That’s the hope of proponents such as Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, who made debt-free college a key talking point in their Democratic presidential campaigns. And that’s the prediction of its main champion, Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who called the plan a “model for the nation.” But even as higher education experts applaud the concept of free tuition, they question finer points of New York’s plan and whether it’s a model that should be replicated elsewhere. New York’s plan would cover in-state public college tuition for full-time students whose families earn $125,000 or ... Read More

It won’t be because he’s idealistic, camera-friendly, or Star Wars-savvy. Mostly, it will be because Ossoff is lucky enough to be the first Democrat to stand a real chance of starting to claw back the ground ceded to Republicans on Capitol Hill. And so Democrats across the country, feeling helpless and maybe even a little guilty about the November election outcome, have plowed an absolutely eye-popping $8.3 million into Ossoff’s campaign.Ossoff’s in...

WASHINGTON -- Warning the U.S. could act alone, President Donald Trump has vowed to deliver an ultimatum to Chinese leader Xi Jinping to rein in North Korea when the two men come face-to-face for the first time this week. But Trump's early retreat on Taiwan already has chipped away at his standing with Beijing, and another bluff could leave him looking the way he hates most: Weak.While Trump enters first U.S.-Chinese summit short on foreign policy experience, he may have advantages to help him succeed where past presidents have failed.

While President Trump has his hands full lining up support from House Republicans for his overthrow of Obamacare, Senate Democrats have taken a clear stand against his nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, raising the stakes for his confirmation. On Thursday, after three days of listening to his “lack of candor” at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) said his party plans to filibuster Gorsuch, which means that the conservative Colorado jurist will likely have to hurdle the 60-vote threshold to take his seat on the High ...
