Schill cuts tuition to $0, angry students say he just wants to make it harder to organize for Bernie

OK, so that’s not exactly what went down at tonight’s Town Hall on the guaranteed tuition plan. The Emerald’s Ryan Nguyen has a more nuanced report here.

As for the plan itself, it goes against what both the neoclassical *and* behavioral economic models predict about student enrollment decisions. So I’d give Roger Thompson a 50/50 chance of pulling it off.

As it happens there’s a good Economics undergrad honor’s thesis about guaranteed tuition here, by one of my former students.
