President Joe Biden laid out a vision for expanded schooling in the United States through his newly proposed American Families Plan, declaring during the State of the Union speech Wednesday evening that all Americans should have access to four more years of free public education in addition to the universal schooling for K-12 students.
Under the American Families plan, American families would have access to free and universal pre-K for three- and four-year-olds, while Americans adults and “DREAMers” would have access to two years of tuition-free community college education.
“Twelve years is no longer enough today to compete with the rest of the world in the 21st century. That’s why my American Families Plan guarantees four additional years of public education for every person in America, starting as early as we can,” said Biden in his speech.
