Barack Obama

President Obama detailed plans Friday to make community college tuition-free for millions of Americans.

FOX News Radio's Jon Decker reports from Washington:

Speaking from Knoxville, Tennessee, the President said his proposal would let community college students save up to $3,800 in tuition per year for two years.

(President Obama) "I want to bring it down to zero."

Under the plan, students would have to attend at least half-time, maintain a grade point average of 2.5 and make regular progress toward completing a degree.

(President Obama) "For millions of Americans, community colleges are essential pathways to the middle class."

But critics say the administration isn't revealing what the program will cost and say there's no evidence that the plan would lead to a more educated workforce.
