That’s why we’ve filed the Debt Free Future Act to make public colleges and universities free and build the most ambitious debt-free college program in the country.

Beacon Hill lawmakers are getting ready to debate whether we keeping forcing students and families into massive debt, or whether we make a systemic change to guarantee access to a college education for every person in our Commonwealth.
