The Potential Cost and Impact of Biden's Free College Plan

New analysis by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce (CEW) finds that the benefits of a free college plan proposed by President-elect Joe Biden would outweigh its costs within a decade.

The report, coauthored by CEW Director Anthony Carnevale, also examines how various approaches to free college would impact student equity and educational attainment in the years following implementation.

Carnevale joins CPRE Knowledge Hub managing editor Keith Heumiller to discuss the center’s analysis and the implications of the Biden free college plan, whether it is ultimately adopted or not.
