Education is the foundation of democracy and a strong country long-term. It needs reform and efficiency but it’s the right direction. College can stay mostly private, where now trade schools and coding academies and the fact top tech companies will to hire from such places will make colleges more affordable, efficient, and better return than a liberal arts education 😂
