Governor Andrew Cuomo has proposed making tuition free at CUNY and SUNY colleges for students with households earning under $125,000. Town & Village asked students at Clinton High School for Writers and Artists if this would impact where they choose to go to school.

“I feel that I would probably want to stay in the city or the state rather than go outside and spend more money. My parent does not make over 125 thousand dollars, so I would want to get the free education.”
“I would stay in the city because it’s free college. And if it was good college I would stay even longer.”
“I plan on going to a private school because my parents went to private schools.”
“That sounds really promising, but I don’t want to stay in New York because I want to explore.”
