You would think schools would have a lot to say about his proposals, but they’re awfully quiet.

Schools silent on Bernie Sanders’ plan to make college tuition-free

Numerous colleges and universities are unwilling to talk about Bernie Sanders’ proposal to cancel student debt and make American higher education tuition-free. The avowedly socialist candidate for president has promised to wipe out well over a trillion dollars in student debt.

With the approach of the 2020 presidential election, Democratic candidates are rushing to define themselves and stand out on the crowded debate stage. Many of them have proposed variations of debt-free, tuition-free higher education, as well as generous student debt forgiveness programs.

Bernie Sanders, the Democratic Party’s premier socialistic candidate who is famous for advocating expansive government services such as free education and healthcare, has declared his own policy goal to erase all student loan debt in America with his College for All act.

Sanders’ proposal “completely eliminates student debt in this country,” ending what the candidate calls “the absurdity of sentencing an entire generation, the millennial generation, to a lifetime of debt,” according to CNN.

Schools won’t comment on the plan

The College Fix reached out to a dozen schools across America, large and small, public and private, for their take on Sanders’ student debt cancellation proposal. All of them were either unwilling to talk about the matter or admitted they were unable to predict how Sanders’s plan would affect them.
