how about >Guarantee tuition and debt-free public colleges, universities, HBCUs, Minority Serving Institutions and trade-schools to all. >Cancel all student loan debt for the some 45 million Americans who owe about $1.6 trillion and place a cap on student loan interest rates going forward at 1.88 percent. \n To whoever, who ever happened to be in debt at least once, the magic words 'Cancel debt' sound like a sweetest music in the world. The whole your life was obscured with gloomy thoughts and in a moment your heart bursts with joy and happiness - Debt is Cancelled. No more debt. Whoever makes such a promise turns into a messiah in the eyes of sorrowful debtors. So mr. Sander promises to cancel the Student debts. Sounds great, but are there any pitfalls? \n Even if it's assumed that the Wall Street speculation tax works and there is enough money to cover all expenses. \n The first and immediate effect will be enormous increase in those wanting to become a student. To cope with the wave of education seekers the Universities, of course, will try to adjust admission process a bit, but finally, being mostly in private hands and thus having income as their ultimate goal rather try to fit the capacities to accept as may students as possible. This in its turn will lead to the lack of highly qualified professors which will be compensated by the influx of the foreign not so qualified staff resulting in decrease of overall education level. \n And the funniest part of course starts when next president will have to abolish 'free' education and today's preschoolers will face even more expensive and yet uncompetitive US universities. almost free universities somehow work in Europe, so should be possible in US lol
