this plan is absolutely ridiculous. the state should not be rewarded prisoners with a free education that hardworking and law abiding students take monstrous loans out to receive.

I have one son with 60,000 in student loans and the other seeing that is working two jobs living in poverty to go to school!!!!! I've got an idea !!!! Let's invest in our upright law abiding young people instead of pounding them into the ground for 20 years as a penalty for doing the right thing and living a moral life!!!
I'm so appalled, everyone is given choices in life, some people decide to stay in school instead of drop out, and they decide to continue pursuing an education to better their life even if it means struggling to make ends meet in order to pay for school. Allowing prisoners free college is absolutely unnerving, I understand the concept and the idea behind it. What's to stop people from having the mindset, why make an honest living and pay for school when they can profit from illegal activities and the worst that can happen to them is go to prison, so they can receive a free education, and then they are still all set? I'm sorry but screw that. This is absurd. I'm going to make sure I increase my participation in voting, and campaigning to hopefully keep people like Governor Cuomo out of office. You want to provide criminals a free education but are opposed to the recreational use of marijuana? Very logical. Let me add, it is not in my best interest, a TAX PAYER, for prisoners to be provided with a free education.
