College students in the US receive public benefits like living grants, public loans, and tuition subsidies. Because of this college students are able to get through their college education without worries.
But some people who have student Debt, have complained that they want a free education or free college. Free education could mean different things to different people,maybe it means providing living grants that is enough for the students maintenance, such as covering their rooms and board completely. But you cant have free education.
With free education it’ll be impossible to get quality education. Have you thought where the money to cover this would come from? Taxpayers. They already pay substantial grants and scholarships awarded to students. It’ll be a burden for them. Not to mention the government would raise taxes are cut services from somewhere else. This doesn’t solve the problem it just causes another. It’s selfish to do this because a small group of people decided that they wanted or want to go into a higher education.
Not to mention that making education free for everyone would allegedly mean that your giving a lot more money to students from Richer families than from poorer ones. Let me put it this way, the Richer your parents are the greater the chance you have that you are going to be in college at age 19,probably at an expensive four-year institution. Meanwhile the few poor kids who do attend college tend to go into a two-year Community College, which are cheaper, and are a less selective four-year colleges.So some would argue that making education free would open up universities and colleges to a larger number of students, well that’s not the case.Making students pay for Education doesn’t limit their options.
Students could get scholarships, federal aid, and student loans to pay for their tuition and maintenance. The system we have already have already allow students to succeed on their career paths before they start to pay back a significant amount of money.In my opinion,I think it’s important to keep the system we already have, and make sure students know that they have to fulfill the responsibilities,which is studying and knowing how to spend their money wisely on their education. I believe that by making education free it would only cause other problems to rise up rather than fix any.
