Yesterday, President Obama proposed making community college free for those “who are willing to work for it.”

The White House reports that the proposed changes would save the average student $3,800 a year and benefit roughly 9 million students. The White House posted a video of Obama discussing his proposal on Facebook.

The President announced his proposal as part of his pre-State of the Union tour.

Read more about the proposal on the White House’s website.
