DIDYA CATCH IT? Last night at the Democratic National Convention, former presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton announced a proposal to make public university educations free for families making salaries that total to less than $125K by 2021. (Ready for another stat? Approximately 83% of families in the United States fall into that category, Sanders said.) States would be required to make some amount of contribution in order for their universities to receive federal funding to support the plan.
