On higher education, what do moderate Democrats stand for?
Bigger is not always better, unless you’re talking about the likelihood of making headlines. In the Democratic presidential primary, left-wing candidates such as Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) have grabbed attention by proposing big (and expensive) proposals on higher education, such as forgiving all or most outstanding student debt and abolishing tuition at four-year colleges and universities. But not all Democratic candidates share this far-left vision for higher education. It showed at this week’s Democratic debates, where moderates took the spotlight.
