Candidates for mayor gathered at a Philadelphia Mayoral Forum on Thursday night at Community College of Philadelphia.

The Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) announced plans last week to make tuition free for qualified, low-income students through its 50th Anniversary Scholars Program.

Philadelphia Futures, a nonprofit that helps promising low-income students with intensive college preparation, has been key, not just with guidance and moral support, but also in paying for things like the two classes she's taking this semester at Community College of Philadelphia.

It happened Thursday, after yet another mayoral forum - this one hosted by the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists, at Community College of Philadelphia. When all six candidates were offstage, where they posed for photos, I had a chance to pose one final question, so I asked: What didn't we ask you tonight that you wish we had?

Students planning to attend Bucks County Community College next semester got some unpleasant news last week: The college trustees voted unanimously to increase tuition by 3.8 percent.
