    Others suspect it because the "black political class" won't make a push for it:

    Germany Just Made College Tuition Free?
    Why Won't Our Black Political Class Fight
    For Free Tuition Here?


    By BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon
    If you depend on TV and the corporate news outlets in your town you probably missed the news that this summer
    Germany made college tuition free for everybody, including foreign students. That's right, free. We're not talking
    about socialist Cuba here, or third world Sri Lanka here, we're talking Germany, the most capitalist of all European
    countries other than Britain. And we're talking free. It says a lot that the news was not covered at all in the corporate
    press or broadcast media on this side of the water. Even more tellingly, the liberal academics and think tanks like the
    Center For American Progress and black outfits like the United Negro College Fund, the Congressional Black Caucus, t
    he Rainbow PUSH Coalition, National Action Network and others have nothing to say on the subject.

    Is free tuition even possible?

    Of course it is. It's not just possible, free tuition at the nation's public colleges and universities would actually
    cost LESS than the federal government now pays to those institutions, according Department of Education
    stats quoted in two very useful articles by Jordan Weismann in The Atlantic in 2013 and 2014. Public colleges and
    universities, he points out, account for 75% of college grads while sub-prime for-profit colleges, which are basically
    machines capture low-income students and walk them through applications for subsidized guaranteed loans account
    for a tiny percentage of grads but eat a full quarter of all the federal aid dollars. The skyrocketing cost of tuition has
    hit nobody harder than African American families. Our glittering, successful and tirelessly self-promoting black political
    class never tires of telling the black masses that education is the way out of poverty. But you have not and you will not hear
    a word from the Jesse Jacksons or the Al Sharptons, or the Urban League or the NAACP, and certainly not from black college
    presidents, or the United Negro College Fund on how much our people have to gain by following the example of Germany.
    It's not even on their horizon.

    Would like to read a little more on the requirements for this free education. Reason being.

    I have a friend who's daughter took her equivalent to a masters degree in Finland which also has tuition free education. She had to have 10,000 euro in the bank and health insurance that covered her while she was in the Country. This was to provide proof that she would not be using the Finnish health, and social systems while she was in college in Helsinki. In her case most classes were in English, as she was studying analytical chemistry. I am wondering if Germany has the same requirements for foreign students, this was not mentioned in the report.

    Those requirements are all reasonable in my opinion. Keep in mind one has to be accepted at a German college to qualify. It's a great benefit for the people of Germany.. but then again.. they have always taken care of their own.. it's what they have done to the rest of the world that is the great issue. The world ought not ever forget that..
