#027 - On this special episode, we are stepping away from our normal episode line-up to make you aware of important information that will affect you if you are a high school student planning to go to college, or if you are the parent of one.
I walk our listeners through Biden’s Plan for Education Beyond High School, the document in which the new president spelled out what he intends to do help students get a higher education. Some of the ideas contained in the document date back to 2015.
Although the document is lengthy, I dissect only the areas that will affect high school students. Those are the areas that I consider to be the most important and consequential parts of the document as they regard your or your kid’s college future.
You may be surprised to hear that the president’s plan includes free tuition for community colleges and state universities, as well increasing the amount of the Pell grant everyone will receive, even doubling it.
This is not an episode about politics, that is something we will never do on the podcast. This is about informing you about important benefits that may be coming your way soon.
