Free? Starbucks Tuition Program Receives Criticism


(USA Today) – Starbucks’ announcement that it’s offering a free college education to all employees has received criticism from several educational policy experts about the scope of its benefits.

The company said Monday that the program, offered to all 135,000 of its U.S. employees, would give full tuition reimbursement to employees who work at least 20 hours a week and are enrolled in Arizona State University’s online program as juniors or seniors starting this fall.

Freshmen and sophomores are eligible for scholarships as well, but not full reimbursement.

The program replaces Starbucks’ tuition reimbursement program of up to $1,000 a year.
