Though other places in the world have free college, New York has surprised everyone by offering four-years tuition free in a public college, them being the first in the U.S. Just released on April 10, Governor Cuomo announced tuition will be free for all residents whose household make under $100,000 a year.

Although tuition will be free for students who apply and get accepted, the graduates will have to live and work in New York for at least four years or you will be forced to pay the money back. This rule instilled by Governor Cuomo was made to ensure that the graduates would stay and be an asset to the state.

New York spends approximately $1 billion dollars on college financial assistance. Knowing this, New York and it’s officials want to make sure they are using their money for the better of their state and not any other state a graduated college student may want to go to.

This could really give individuals who are less fortunate an opportunity that they may not have had before. There are many people out there in the world who are smart and intelligent; however, the disadvantage for some people would be the accessibility to resources. So now that the resources, the free college, the ticket to success, is being given it’s up to eager students who want to take ahold of the opportunity.

This could very well make the U.S. a better place. Right now the free four-year public college is only being started in New York, when and if this goes right for New York it could then expand to other states in the U.S. This could potentially make the world a better place, open up job opportunities, and make the world more efficient as a whole.

In the end, if the U.S. really wants some change to happen, then more states will need to get on board and work together on this. If you are an adult graduating from college you have dreams, you are going to want to travel and you might want to move from New York to your dream state. New York, or any state, can’t be stingy by blackmailing graduates to stay in the state that you graduated from for four years after they have graduated.

Overall this gutsy move by Governor Cuomo is a great direction toward success for New York and could use some work, but most importantly it’s helping U.S. citizens be successful.
