This article takes the perspective of private colleges that are reacting with concern after the state's announcement of a free college tuition program. They "reacted with a mix of dismay, confusion, criticism and, in some cases, resolve in the days after New York leaders struck a deal to start a tuition-free public college program this fall." At the same time, public universitties in the state are launching a major expansion of OER programs (which make much more sense once tuition is free). "This isn't a nice one-off innovation," Hatch said. "This is something that can be incredibly impactful for our students. If you can save students $700 a semester, that's a month's rent."
