Clinton, Hillary Not Bill, silly, felt the Bern, or at least his young voters…and their parents…and their parent’s parents…of the burden of tuition on working class families.
All of Bernie’s empowerment of the 99% has urged a compromise from the winning democratic candidate we might not have otherwise. Thanks, Bernie, for pushing the forward thinking more forward. Onward, and maybe upward?
Remember Rosie The Riveter? She was welding the nails of the jet which men (mostly) went off and fought for…for what was that?
Oh yes, for all of us to have good jobs, even children only their job is school…financial freedom, families and good schools. That’s what Rosie was doing – or how the idea of women working was propagandized during WWII.
As Part of Clinton’s Democratic Platform Anyone From A Family Making Less Than $85,000 a Year Can Attend College “Tuition-Free”
Or at least charged “debt-free tuition”, as the proposed alternative in the draft.
Your cry has been heard? How nice does that feel?!
Won’t count for a masters, though. And of course, it’s not guaranteed to happen.
The draft for the Democratic Platform for the 2016 election will be finalized July 8th or 9th. Here is the draft, click here for a pdf.
While we are on Clinton’s Platform and Education…where DO her passions lie?
Computer Science Is Where It’s At For Clinton
“The world is changing,” Clinton began. “But our education system is lagging behind. Consider this: There are more than half a million open jobs that require computing skills across the country and in every major industry. But the majority of schools in the United States do not offer computer science. It isn’t just that there’s a shortage of computer science teachers, it’s that we haven’t made a commitment to do that. But I have. I’m going to prioritize; give our educators the time and the resources they need to learn how to integrate digital tools into the curriculum,”
You might need a job – right yesterday…and here are a few places that UNDER CLINTON’S PROPOSAL IN ACTION…you can be…
- An Optometrist which can pay for their children’s tuition if they choose, because they make $129,000 in median income / year. Click here if you are interested in Optometry.
- A Chiropractor which can have their child’s tuition paid for because their median income is $66,720. Click here if you are interested in being a Chiropractor.
- Being a Paramedic is less certain, but the BLS reports the median annual salary as $31,700 in 2014. The best-paid 10 percent in the profession made approximately $54,690, while the lowest-earning 10 percent made approximately $20,690. Nope, tuition-free hopefully. Take steps towards being a paramedic here.
- A truck drive is a good example of as much as you could make and still have your children’s school scot-free:$73,000, according to ATA. The Labor Department pegs the median annual salary for all truck drivers at around $40,000. Click here for information in this direction.
