Think Tank Proposal Would Aim for No Student Borrowing

An ambitious college affordability plan released by the Center for American Progress Wednesday aims to guarantee that no student has to borrow to pay for a college education.
Unlike other notable free college or debt-free college proposals, the plan, dubbed "Beyond Tuition," would impose quality standards on institutions to ensure they address disparate outcomes for students of color, low-income students, and other nontraditional groups.
The plan also would provide up to $10,000 a year for costs not related to tuition and fees such as housing, food, and transportation.
