Editorial: Change in community college may help workforce

(Continued)

Indiana higher education officials and legislators should have open, public dialogue on the value — read that as rate of return — for tuition-free or reduced-cost community college.

The burden to taxpayers would be costly and, perhaps, felt strongest by Hoosiers without teenagers. But the idea of less expensive community college could mean Indiana will create a better educated workforce. And that, in the long run, gives back to all Hoosiers.

Low-cost community college education, coupled with an increased offering of college-level courses for high school kids, could be a winning combination.

In summary The idea of free community college is worth consideration in Indiana. Low-cost community college education, coupled with an increased offering of college-level courses for high school kids, could be a winning combination.
