“We should be doing all that we can to make education more equitable to all, which requires removing financial burdens. Teaming up with businesses and colleges to create debt-free college training programs and student-debt forgiveness is a great step in the right direction, with the ultimate goal I believe, to be that of free higher education.” – Amanda Webster
