College President: Hillary's Free Tuition Plan 'Doesn't Make Any Sense'
At the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton made a lot of big promises, including making public college tuition-free for the middle class and debt-free for all Americans.
But not everyone is on board.
A private college president and Clinton supporter says that this free tuition plan could put her school out of business.
Patricia McGuire, president of Trinity Washington University, said on "Fox and Friends" this morning that she felt she had to speak out because her students are being left out.
"Trinity, like many small, private universities, educates a substantial percentage of low-income students," McGuire said, pointing out that 80 percent of their students receive Pell Grants and their median family income is just $25,000.
She said she is concerned that all the money that funds grants and scholarships at private institutions - like Trinity - will be redirected by the federal government to public universities.
"Why would you leave out some of the school that are doing the best work with low-income students who have been on the margins of education?" McGuire said. "It doesn't make any sense."
"Don't leave out the low-income students who are thriving in the women's colleges, the Catholic colleges, the religiously-affiliated, the private, historically black colleges and universities, the art schools and music schools," McGuire said. "All of these students deserve the opportunity to have the same kind of benefits that students in public schools have."
"Do not discriminate against students who go to private colleges."
