New York Governor Cuomo recently announced that New York State would cover tuition costs at state and city universities for students whose families earn under a certain dollar amount.
The governor’s plan is laudable, but does not go far enough. As I wrote in an op-ed for the The New York Daily News, this initiative should also extend to students at private nonprofits. Schools like Pace University have a proven track record of elevating graduates’ earning power, irrespective of their socioeconomic status.
