Along with this, President Obama made a proposal which offers two free years of community college where this proposal of the President had received lots of different positive and negative opinions, comments, and feedbacks from it.

Maddie Berlemann Mrs. Mercer Honors Freshman lit. March 2, 2017 Tuition Free College Even though opponents say that free college would not be an option because faculty would push for more pay, tuition free college is good for reasons such as making cities more successful, students would not be crushed by debt, students would value higher education and it would benefit the poor. According to Lawrence S. Wittner, “Free public higher education provides educational opportunities for all.” Including the low income families and students. As prices of schools rise lower income families have harder times paying for it not to mention the “thousands of dollars in room, board, books, and other living expenses” as Lawrence S. Wittner explains.
All these are reasons community college tuition should not be provided by the federal government for free.Many hurdles and cost differences among states would make it too complicated for the federal government to provide free tuition. States would have to agree to participate in the free tuition program. States that choose to participate in the free tuition program would have shared responsibility. The federal government would contribute 75% of the average cost of community colleges. States would contribute the remaining 25%.
Completely free tuition will be difficult to achieve, however, Sanders has developed a 6-step plan that he ensures will work. The first step, is making tuition free at public colleges and universities. Under the College for all Act, the government would cover 67% of the cost and the remaining percentage (33%) relies on the states. Next, he would stop the government from making a profit on student loans. Bernie is going to restore the formula which was in effect until 2006 that substantially lower student loan interest rates.
Jill Stein will is the best candidate for President, because she voices her views on education, families and children, and jobs. Most of the candidates in this election seem to overlook these topics.

“42% of college students in the United States fail to complete their degrees. Of those 42%, 15-25% will drop-out, and the remaining 17-27% will leave college, for reasons that are less clear.” There is obviously something wrong with our education system as a whole for so many students to drop out of college. Yet, individuals believe that college tuition should be free, and paid for by the government with taxpayer money. Secondary school should not be free because it should not replace the education that should be taught in high school, it will make individuals pay more taxes in order to pay for college tuition and it will motivate student to do good in school. Initially , secondary education should not be free because students will lose
Bernie Sanders, a U.S. state senator and American politician once said, “We are moving in exactly the wrong direction in higher education.

Many people are talking about the possible downfalls of these schools, The Policy Director of Education Sector Kevin Carey, in his commentary “Why do you think there called For-Profit Colleges?” published in The Chronicle of Higher Education, July 25, 2010,addresses the topic of for profit colleges, students loans and higher education and argues that for profit schools are necessary despite the “shady” things and financial dangers going on because they fill a void left by traditional institutions, and they are to stay. He supports his claim by first calling attention to the negative parts of these universities, then the positive perspectives. He eventually infers there are perils included with the for-benefit. Carey’s purpose is to educate
Through the widening support to make higher education reasonably affordable, the concept of giving U.S. high school graduates the chance to go to college for free has gained political backing. In 2015, President Barack Obama put forward a national, free community college project that is being looked at by Congress right now. This plan would “grant free tuition to any student enrolled at least halftime with a 2.5 grade-point average, and with a family income under $200,000.” Recently, Oregon and Tennessee have passed similar plans. However, high ranked private universities have multibillion funding that can give full ride tuition for low-income students who have done very, very well in their academic performance. However, for the rest of us, it 's every person for themselves.
It is even known that in the year 2018 McDonalds is insisting for their employees to have a high school diploma or to at least still be in school. So if you think about how a low paying job like McDonalds is insisting for a diploma imagine the level of education better paying jobs like fireman or police officers will be asking for in the future. Many Americans disagree with free education since in their eyes, they can’t see the U.S. being capable of paying off everyone’s tuition. Their primary argument is that the U.S is already in debt if they were to pay for millions of student’s tuition it would devastate us economically. Its effects could include
