"Starting this fall, undergraduate students who attend a State University of New York or City University of New York school will be eligible for the Excelsior Scholarship if their families earn no more than $100,000 a year. The income cap will lift to $110,000 next year and will reach $125,000 in 2019."

Texas with all of its oil money is cutting back on education to include denying free tuition to the children of veterans.  While NY moves forward, Texas seeks to move backwards.

NY for all of its taxes, is constantly growing with more and more high paying jobs.  Why, from high school forward education is promoted by NY.

My grandnephew did 4 years of high school technical training to become an avionics mechanic.  He will graduate in June, with one formal year left at Suffolk county community college which will now be free.  He will earn more than an average Texas lawyer, because he will be fully state certified from an accredited community college..  He will have the option of going to the university to become an engineer if he so chooses, while working and earning good money.

Texas fails to understand you must invest in the education of the children.

Further, when you are conned into going to a non-accredited technical school, where you cannot get financial aid, and must pay for some of that training, you are wasting precious time.  TSC has a fully accredited program for the same thing which for many is 100% free.  Unlike Mike Hernandez's program you will be certified at TSC and your credits will be transferable.  Do not be conned by Mike Hernandez's unaccredited program.  Check with TSC.  They have Technology Construction which is at an accredit school.  For many it is 100% free.

A free education is meaningless if you cannot get certified at the end, and the institution you are attending is not accredited.
