I am pleased to report that NDN, a leading think tank and advocacy organization based in Washington, DC, has joined CFCT’s bipartisan coalition to make college tuition free in all 50 states. As we work to educate parents, students, the higher education community, policy makers and taxpayers about efforts needed to reform fundamentally our nation’s broken system for financing the cost of higher education, NDN’s understanding of the millennial generation and their impact on the future of American politics will make them a valued partner. We firmly believe free college tuition is a goal that is supported by people of all political persuasions – as evidenced by President Obama’s America’s College Promise proposal and Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam’s Tennessee Promise program – and are proud to have both major parties represented in our leadership.
Simon Rosenberg, the President and Founder of NDN, stated “ensuring that America has a well-educated workforce that isn’t crippled by student loan debt is a bold cause that would have a positive benefit for all. I applaud CFCT’s historic commitment to free universal education by making public colleges tuition free in all 50 states.”
Please visit the NDN website to read their statement of support.
Our goal is to make higher education a possibility for every American, without regard to their financial circumstances.
We have a lot to do and not much time to do it, so your support is critical for our campaign to succeed. It’s with your investment that we can fundamentally reform how higher education is financed in this country, opening the doors to a more equitable society.
If you agree with our goal, our plan, and the urgency of the problem, we ask that you give what you can to help us write the next chapter in our nation’s history of continuously expanding access to universal, free education.
