9. The tax credit is good. It's the least you can do.
However, there has to be a bigger solution that reduces the amount of the cost of education that is financed in the first place. (Which is what Edwards's one year free is all about.)

another solution is encouraging savings plans which go towards tuition so that you're financing less (which, I believe, Edwards wants to do).

But there's alwasy the problem that if you make it easier to pay for college, colleges will rais the prices to the level of hurt students and parents are willing to endure, so you need more, better funded universities, so that they supply matches the demand, and prices are kept low (which, I believe, Edwards is committed to as well).
