This is amazing news for the young people of NY. Especially those who come from families that would NEVER be able to afford college. New York, just became the first State in the country to offer students free tuition to all State colleges and Universities, for students whose family earn less than $100,000! The deal includes both the State University of New York and the City Universities of New York.
Given what SF just did with City College Of SF, I am hoping California isn't too far behind.
