Usually real estate taxes pay for schools 1-12, or some areas have a special tax allocated specifically for schools.

I would support 'free' local 2 year college as an extension of the usually 12 years one spends in school, if it included vocational training.

By then, the students would have matured a bit more, and may actually have a clue about what a 'profitable degree' actually was.

College or university after that, is up to the individual.

That being said, nothing is 'free'. If you want government sponsored college or university, may I suggest moving to the EU?
