Let’s give every child a college savings account
Albert Einstein said, “The most powerful force in the universe is compound interest.”
A bill by Rep. Christine Kilduff (D-University Place) would unleash that power for every child in Washington state.
“Every child deserves a chance to earn a college degree,” Kilduff said. “This legislation is about hope, about giving kids a chance. Because too many smart students today see the sky-high price of tuition and think there’s no way their family can afford it. We can do better.”
The bill establishes the Washington Next Generation Educational Savings Account, similar to what’s working in Maine, Vermont and other states.
