Tennessee Makes Community College Tuition Free For All Adults

By Mustafa Gatollari

If there's one thing that flourishing Nordic and certain European countries have proven, it's that an educated group of citizens ultimately benefits their societies.

By offering free or low cost tuition to citizens, they're able to get better jobs, innovate in their respective industries, and produce more for not only their families but for the rest of their country. This benefits everyone on a whole and generally makes everybody happier.

With rising tuition costs in America, generations of people are getting mired in student loans and debt. Many people are left paying off their loans for the rest of their lives. Recently, however, some politicians and state legislators have worked on solutions for this rising tuition problem. Middle class students in New York can now attend college for free, but it's not the only state looking to solve college tuition woes for Americans.
