    who do they think will pay for their free college? School isn't free, healthcare isn't free, nothing is free someone has to pay for it and usually it's the middle class who ends up shouldering the burden. It aggravates me when these children call on the almighty government to come to their rescue, where do they think the government gets its money???? The money tree?

    ... "I want Wall Street now to help kids in this country go to college, public colleges and universities, free with a Wall Street speculation tax," Sanders said at Tuesday's Democratic debate on CNN.

    Here's how it would work: The federal government would pay $2 in matching funds for every dollar states spend on making tuition free at public colleges and universities. Also, it would cut student loan interest rates to about 2% for undergraduates, and allow those with student debt to refinance at low rates. The pricetag: up to $750 billion over 10 years ...

    To pay for it, Sanders would impose a 0.5% fee on stock trades, 0.1% fee on bonds and a 0.005% fee on derivatives. This would raise up to $300 billion a year, according to Warren Gunnels, his policy director, citing a 2012 University of Massachusetts Amherst report ...

    Can we care about terrorism and campus activism at the same time?


    ... There are as many reactions to a large-scale news event as there are individuals witnessing it unfold. But these days, the battle to control the narrative happens in real time, and it involves anyone with a social media account. In the wake of the Paris attacks, many people invested in the Black Lives Matter movement took to Twitter to voice concerns that social justice activism in the United States, including recent campus protests against systemic racism at the University of Missouri and Yale, would be ignored now that all eyes were on Europe ...

    Can we care about terrorism and campus activism at the same time?

    After an international tragedy like the terrorist acts in Paris last week, we perform a relatively new social media ritual: We attempt to collectively rank the importance of various injustices. Some of us are outraged that attacks in Western...

    Obama calls out liberal “dogmatism” on college campuses




    President Obama wants college students at Missouri and elsewhere to organize and protest when it's important, but he's also worried about something else: students being too quick to shut down the other side and not listen.

    In a wide-ranging interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, he argued that on college campuses, students are too eager to avoid debate and discussion: ...
