Imagine you're about to go to college. You've got two things on your mind: First you want an education you can afford, and second, you want a good job when you graduate.

In Florida, the governor's office is proposing a bold new plan that freezes tuition for in-demand fields like science, technology and health care, leaving prices higher for majors in English and History.

Could something like this work in California? More importantly, is it a good idea?

Michael Vasquez, education reporter for the Miami Herald, joins the show to talk about the plan and what people in Florida are saying.
