Chris Christie Reveals Education Plan. Meanwhile, another soon to be presidential candidate—Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ)—laid out his education plan if he were to become president. During the announcement he called for an expansion of Pell grants and of financial aid programs available to people at the bottom of the economic ladder. He also proposed an alternative to the current student loan system by calling for “income share agreements.” This would give students the option to pay a proportion of their income to whomever pays for their college education for a certain amount of time. [New York Times]
