Michigan Democrats are promoting a plan called the Michigan Promise. It is based on the Kalamazoo Promise, but unlike the latter, it would be government funded.
The plan would give college scholarships to students who live in poor school districts. Bizarrely, the bill would give scholarships to both rich and poor students in poor districts, but it would not give scholarships to poor students in rich districts.
Even worse, the bill discriminates against charter, private, and home schools. It doesn't offer any scholarships to students of these schools. Thus it effectively discriminates against Christians, who often cannot attend public schools for religious reasons.
It also won't make college more affordable. The more government subsidizes college, the more that colleges can increase prices. This is why college costs so much.
This proposal won't help students, but it will help teacher unions, which is who democrats really care about.
