Many complain about the high cost of college. I often read about free college. Bernie Sanders comes to mind. I like some of the principles that Bernie advocates, but exactly how many trillions of dollars will Bernie’s free college actually cost? And who will pay?

PROPOSITION: Allow adjuncts at community colleges to teach as volunteers.

There are two sides to the debate.

  • students, parents and taxpayers
  • unions, politicians and special interest groups

Which side are you on? I suggest the reader contact members of the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities and ask “What do you think of this proposition as a first step?” Respectfully, demand a response.

I offer to teach “hard math,” calculus III, at any community college in Connecticut as a volunteer. Think of it as free college that is actually FREE!
