I recently sat down with Gwyneth Doland at KNME and CNM President Katharine Winograd to discuss the Obama Administration’s proposal for “free” community college. Needless to say, we are not big fans of Obama’s proposal. Even Winograd doesn’t seem to be fully-convinced that the program is the best use of taxpayer dollars.
And, while RGF opposes the Obama proposal, we do value the educational value of community colleges and emphasized their importance in a 2014 paper outlining needed reforms for New Mexico’s lottery scholarship program. Community colleges (like CNM) are one way to get more “bang” for lottery scholarship bucks.
The full interview is below with a “web extra” below that.
