More education is an investment into our future, if every student receives a free college education funded by a increase in taxes from the rich and ultra rich, we'll have more skilled workers and people that will benefit and advance the future of our country.
A majority of students spends their entire life trying to pay their student loans. Most of the money they make goes into student loans. More than 50% of students not be able to pay off their debt, living their life not having enough money.
The government should be supportive and provide financial help to its students because it will benefit the future of the nation. Education should be the number one priority for financial support from the government since it will help to build up citizens that will become great future workers.
More than 10% of American students going to school struggle from the debt that comes from student loans, college funds, and scholarships. I think people of higher income are more than capable of committing to this, as it might be beneficial or effective even if the efficiency is minor.
There have been several court cases leveraged against student loan companies that show payment from students being intentionally misplaced in order to increase interest on loans. Interest rates are already incredibly high, and these loans are targeted towards young people without fully developed cognitive abilities.
I disagree with increasing funding to pay for college because people that aren’t sending their kids to college or are already paying for college shouldnt be forced to pay for another persons education.
I don't believe in free College. College is already expensive enough as it is. And I firmly believe that free College would take away the accomplishment it takes to complete College and earn your degree.
I understand your viewpoint about the sense of accomplishment that comes with completing a degree. However, the key argument for free college is about accessibility and equal opportunity. It's not about diminishing the value of a degree, but about leveling the playing field so that more people have the chance to earn that accomplishment.
Consider countries like Germany and Norway, where higher education is essentially free. These countries still have rigorous academic standards and their degrees are highly valued globally. The accomplishment isn't in being able to afford education… Read more
I dont think goverment should raise because college at some places are a privlagge and people work hard to get in there.
“some places are a privlagge and people work hard to get in there.”
Going to college is not a complete necessity to Americans and the fact that they want to tax the people who have more than likely worked the hardest, just so people can go and get an education that sometimes is almost completely useless is simply crazy.
Trump's Stance on Student Loan Debt
Besides using the HEROES Act to suspend student loan payments and stop interest from accruing due to the onset of the pandemic in March 2020, Trump also extended the student loan payment and interest pause twice more before he left office
Some opponents of free college argue that the government shouldn't be subsidizing people's degrees in majors that aren't likely to lead to a good job. They might be okay with subsidizing STEM degrees but not, say, theater degrees
College is expensive. It is the responsibility of the student to make smart financial decisions. If a student makes poor choices and decides to major in a sector that doesn't make much money and go to a university that's too expensive, why are taxpayers who made smart financial decisions, being forced into paying for someone else's poor choices, when they did it the right way? It's almost as if you are punishing the people who did it right. It is not the job of the Government to subsidize bad decisions.
You can make money any way in America. If you really want to go to college, then you can make money other ways to afford it. Also, many scholarships are available to everyone if you are willing to give enough effort in school. College is affordable for the poor if they are willing to work hard in school. There are also many different forms of financial aid given by the government already.
