(FREE BEACON) – A professor at California State University at Channel Islands offered extra credit to students who penned a letter to their state legislators demanding the need for free college.
Frank Barajas handed students the optional assignment during a history class on U.S. history since 1887, instructing them to detail in one-to-two pages how the "high fees and tuition" at CSU impacts their personal lives and families both financially and psychologically.
"Also include why you believe free tuition would better impact your education," the assignment instructed.

Barajas included a link to his blog to help guide students with a "historical context to what university students" experience currently. Campus Reform noted that in one of the posts Barajas equated students loans to financial slavery.
