Would free university tuition work in the US? - Zoe Thomas, BBC

Last week, Mrs Clinton announced a new plan to make university free for some students. Under the former secretary of state's plan, students from families that earn less than $85,000 (£65,600) a year would be eligible for tuition-free education at public universities in their state. The level of income required for eligibility would increase by $10,000 a year until it reaches $125,000 by 2021. Students would be asked to work 10 hours a week to pay for cost-of-living expenses. Universities would be asked to improve their value by controlling costs and improving graduation rates. The plan also looks to cut the amount of existing and future debt for students attending private or out-of-state universities.
