The need for free public education couldn’t come at a more pivotal moment. If you haven’t heard about the revolutionary group Strike Debt, now is the time to take notice. “You are not a loan,” says Strike Debt’s nation-wide movement, which aims to unify debt resistors for economic justice. They explore topics such as debt resistance, governmental accountability, and analyze double standards of debtors and banks.
Strike Debt did the math for the potential cost of free public education in America; you can take a look at their blog post “How Far to Free?” to see their calculations. What do you think? Is free public education too radical or exactly what we need? Take a listen and let us know your thoughts.
