CPCC President Hopes Obama's Community College Tuition Plan Becomes A Reality

Jan 9, 2015

President Obama Friday proposed a plan that would provide tuition assistance to community college students. All students who are enrolled at least part-time and who maintain at least a 2 .5 GPA would qualify. The White House hasn’t released many details.

North Carolina Congresswoman Virginia Foxx, a former community college president, calls it the "wrong approach for the federal government to take."

The idea has support, though, from Central Piedmont Community College president Tony Zeiss.  He spoke to WFAE's Duncan McFadyen.
