Oregon Explores Novel Way to Fund College: 'Pay It Forward' - WSJ.com

oregon is pondering a proposal to allow students to attend college and pay for their higher education with 3% of their income over 24 years

if you were a college student, would that appeal to you?



what concerns would you have for the student? for the state?
Someone beat you to this topic on the economics forum.

but yea, I think it's a cool idea.

I actually saw this on facebook a few days ago. I see absolutely nothing wrong with it at this point. It's a great idea. Gonna push it through my student advocacy groups in California too.

1. Voluntary
2. They pay for their own benefit
3. the payment is a flat percentage
4. Other people aren't required to pay for what they want

Imagine if most of our tax and spend programs were run that way. I wonder which political ideology pushes for things that have those qualities ;)
