Oregon's "Pay It Forward" proposal falters: Higher Education Roundup

 An innovative Oregon plan to allow college students to defer paying tuition until after they graduate and begin a career has failed to gain support from the state's higher education board.
 The panel said Oregon has much more important things to spend its money on, including an expansion of need-based financial aid and bolstering  community college and university operations, than to launch a ground-breaking but potentially unworkable tuition-free "Pay It Forward" plan, the Oregonian reported.
Pay It Forward would allow students to attend college tuition-free in exchange for paying back a predetermined, fixed share of their income for an extended period after leaving college.
