This concept is grand as all should be entitled to a degreed occupation but there should be a mandatory service component whereas you give back to your community with the free earned skill set.

The program will be modeled after one in Tennessee, in which the state covers the cost of community college tuition for students that’s not already covered for them by grants and scholarships. It also requires the student to have a mentor, perform 8 hours of community service per term, as well as maintain a 2.0 GPA.
