One of the popular stances many on the left hold is the need for Free College.  While I believe that we should provide free secondary education - I think if we provide free post-secondary education - then we really just make college the equivalent of high school in terms of a basis for employment.  I think that making public universities free will simply make public universities harder for excellent students to go to and will end up exacerbating a two-tiered post-secondary system - with private schools becoming more exclusive and making excellent public universities - like UVA or Michigan - even more difficult for your middle class, high achieving student to attend.
