The issue of the government’s proper role in higher education has been a part of the presidential campaign platforms of candidates on both sides of the aisle, from Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Their proposals range from free community college, income-based debt repayment and funding from private investors.
