Rinzin gives 8 or 9 out of 10 marks for the President’s address.

On the President’s proposal for a free 2-year Community College for eligible students, Tsetan said that he is for quality and not quantity in higher education, and so does not much appreciate that, while Rinzin said that many Tibetan-Americans will be beneficiary of such programs along with health and medical programs.
