Students at private nonprofits deserve free tuition too

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.
