Superintendents at Potsdam and Canton Central are praising Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposal to give free SUNY tuition to middle class families, but are concerned about how the governor plans to pay for it. The plan would apply to SUNY Canton and Potsdam colleges. According to Cuomo the new initiative will be phased in over three years, beginning for New Yorkers making up to $100,000 annually in the fall of 2017, increasing to $110,000 in 2018, and reaching $125,000 in 2019.
Do you support free tuition at SUNY schools?
