Would Your State Qualify For Clinton's $175B Public College Grant? - Brian Patrick Byrne , Vocativ

If Clinton's proposal were introduced today, 13 states wouldn't qualify for the debt-relief plan. Hillary Clinton is proposing to fix America’s $1.2 trillion student loan debt problem by promising $175 billion in grants for states which stop pulling funds from public universities. Clinton’s proposal says that states that guarantee students would not have to take out loans to cover tuition at four-year public schools would qualify for the grant money. In return, states would have to end budget cuts on education, increase spending and curb the rise in tuition. If Clinton’s proposal were introduced today, 13 states wouldn’t qualify for the debt-relief plan because they continue to cut higher education funding for their own students, which results in higher tuition fees to cover the shortfall.
