Oregon lawmakers are considering several ways to lower the cost of a college education, including allowing students to attend community college for two years for free. That proposal could cost the state $250 million a year, but its sponsor argues that it would pay for itself by building the state's workforce. Other ideas include requiring high-school students to earn college credit before graduation, and a "Pay it Forward" scheme that would allow students to attend college for free upfront and pay a percentage of their income back to the school after graduation.
