“every young person who wants to attend”
He’s like the Mexican version of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren rolled into one.
The Associated Press reports:
Newly-elected Mexican president promises to send everyone to college
Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is promising to send to college every young person who wants to attend.
Lopez Obrador told reporters Saturday that all young Mexicans will have the opportunity to study. He said that may require building new high schools and universities.
Future education secretary Esteban Moctezuma said later that the government will provide $126 in monthly scholarships to students who need financial help to finish high school or university, if the budget permits. He said the new government does not plan to increase taxes.
