How Far Would You Go for Free College Tuition?

Going to college costs a lot of money. And if you pay for it by yourself there is a pretty big chance (like 100%) you'll leave with a hefty debt. And if you are in college now, there's a good chance you won't be able to find a good job to pay off all that debt.

A US Senator, Lamar Alexander (yes, please send him nasty letters and kick him on the street), stated in a recent Newsweek Article that “an educational schedule of 3 months of summer is not relevant in today’s world and [college] students should take more credit hours and graduate in 3 years, saving 25% in tuition costs.”
