‘We don’t ban the rich from public schools, firefighters, or libraries’ — AOC slams Pete Buttigieg after he criticizes tuition-free public college as too radical
They absolutely shouldn’t be different. A college degree or vocational education is becoming the norm and the education system should adjust to match it. Bernie, AOC, and other progressives are correct to recognize this while also understanding the benefits of a universal program that doesn’t discriminate.
We don’t want the classes to be continually isolating themselves, we want rich kids interacting with everyone else so they feel as though they are part of the broader society and they learn about the issues poor people face. Unfortunately most rich kids will still just be going to private college, but if they want to pay for that then fair enough.
And to Buttigieg’s point about paying for rich kids to go to college, Bernie’s plan has the rich paying for everyone’s college. So if they end up sending their kids to public colleges then they are literally just using a service that they are paying for anyway, it’s just that they will be paying the government through taxes instead of paying the college directly. Buttigieg is being disingenuous and it is just so sad and disappointing to see, though it doesn’t surprise me.
