Students Plan Protests Across U.S. Against Tuition Debt

1 minute read

Thousands of students plan to march for a free college education on Thursday, in the wake of student protests related to race at the University of Missouri and Yale.

The Million Student March will take place at schools across the country, where students are hoping to call attention to the financial issues many young Americans have as they try to get an education. The event’s Facebook page highlights the hope of “tuition-free public college, a cancellation of all student debt, and a $15/hr campus wide minimum wage everywhere.”

The march follows student protests at Missouri, which led to the resignation of the school’s president and chancellor.
