I posting this here to discuss the community development and economic results of this program. Mods if you think it should be moved go for it.
The Kalamazoo Public Schools in Michigan just announced The Kalamazoo Promise. The program entitles all kalamazoo public school students who attend school from K-12 free college tuition to any public university. If you attend school from 9-12 grade you get 65% of your tuition paid for.
This program will run through 2018.
How do you think this will impact housing/property values, economic development, school involvement by parents, and investment in the community?
