When it comes about Kenyatta Lovett’s father joining college, he went for a job of keeping bricks for paying the school fee. However, depending upon simply a summer time job or just a part time job for fulfilling college payment requirements is pretty impossible in modern times, according to Lovett, the   executive director of Complete Tennessee, which is a non-profit organisation talking in support of growing post-secondary access and finishing in Tennessee that was the initial state in the nation to make community college absolutely free across the state.

Lovett states during a discussion panel on free college in March that-

"If anyone today wanted to go out and lay bricks and even pay for books that semester, it's probably not going to happen. And so the realities of what college cost for my father look drastically different than today"

After the Tennessee Promise introduced in the year 2015, various other cities and states have put forth their effort to duplicate the features of the program. Colleges have also made an announcement about their respective free of cost tuition program, very much as of the University of Tennessee made the announcement in earlier month to fulfil the tuition and charges for students having a family earning of less than fifty thousand dollars in a year starting in fall 2020.

At the present date, about 20 states come up with free college programs in the United States. The number is expected to keep on growing with more number of states and institutions declare about the equivalent kind of scopes. The programs of such may growingly become favourites of students as they wish to have better opportunities against the growing expense of college. However, according to experts, the concept of free college is simply meant for conveying a straightforward message, keeping various kinds of programs in sight.
