Obama to propose free community college program
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama says in a videotaped message that he wants to make community college free "for everybody who is willing to work for it."
Obama says in the video posted on Facebook that he will announce his plan to make community college accessible to anyone during a stop Friday in Tennessee.
Last year, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam signed into law a scholarship program that provides free community and technical college tuition for two years to the state's high school graduates. About 58,000 of the state's roughly 62,000 seniors have applied to participate this fall.
