This is why I quit as a mentor for Tennessee Achieves (after three years) to protest the new Tennessee Promise.
It's the taxpayers who are picking up the tab for free tuition at Pellissippi State (and other two-year colleges and technical schools) including the 10% increase next year because the state is not funding higher education as it should. I am not convinced this is what is best for the students, especially the many who need remedial classes and can't graduate in two years.
