Arguing For Free College Education has developed in our society in such a way that its a primary factor on how much we succeed in life. Higher education like colleges should be free to the public since everyone deserves an equal opportunity to receive higher education no matter their financial situations. Its well known that the better education you receive, the more likely your profession will come with an exceptional wage. However, the U.S. only provides free education from K-12 which in recent years that isn’t enough to have a good wage to support a family.
All around the United States, there are people who probably never got the chance to go to college, not because they didn’t want to or weren’t motivated enough, but instead they couldn’t afford to go. In his book, The World Is Flat, Thomas L. Friedman talks about globalization, which means that the world is being flattened. What this means is countries are now able to compete with each other. One solution that would help people in a flattening world is free community college for two years. A majority of people have given up on the idea of college simply because it’s too expensive.
According to Advanced American Dictionary, the term “there’s no such thing as a free lunch” is defined as “used to say that you should not expect to get something good or valuable without having to pay for it or make any effort.” From this point, everything that is free could be considered worthless. Consequently, free post-secondary education, as well as a free lunch, unfortunately, is diminished in its value. Although the topic of making public higher education free has been mostly discussed over the last period of time by many educational officials and politicians, it still remains a hot subject for deliberations. Would free post-secondary education decrease the value of a college degree?
Attending a college/university is a dream that every young teenager dreams about, sadly a lot them eventually come to the realization that college and universities are too expensive for them to even afford. That is why many will just choose to go straight into the workforce right after the graduate highschool. Sometimes even community college is too expensive for them. Obama is trying to tackle this problem by proposing his idea of making Community College tuition free for all students. Normally I would agree and say this is a wonderful proposal but after reading over Joanne Jacobs’ article “As He Promotes It, Some Question Obama’s Free Community College Idea,” I do not agree with his idea of making community college free.
Making College free will do nothing but make things worse. Free college will attract many different people and could overpopulate the college. Many students will take advantage of the “free” concept and waste the money and time spent of the college. Although people believe offering free college will solve many problems with the U.S economy, free college should not be an option because it will not help teach responsibility, will bring in unprepared students, and will not solve problems with the economy. . “How would free college improve students readiness”?
The Failures of Free College Chris Christie, a Republican candidate running for president, recently stated that “... if college graduates are going to reap the greater economic rewards and opportunities of earning a degree, then it seems fair for them to support the cost of the education they 're receiving. Earning a degree should actually involve earning it.” Recently, free college has been a topic for debate. In January of this year, President Obama presented his proposal to America for community college, free of charge. This proposal of free college is impractical for everyone around the world.
A Lot of people say colleges are too expensive to attend especially people with low incomes i disagree. i do think they should be lower though. like for instance it 's going to cost me 60 thousand dollars to attend four years of college wich in my head isn 't that bad, but for others it might be too much. there are some geniuses in the world that can 't attend college so yes the cost should be lower .
Emily Lorence sits at her old, rickety desk, staring at a whiteboard that is no longer white. Piles of dust cover every nook and cranny of the classroom. It is the dead heart of winter and Emily’s fingers and toes are turning blue. The cold somehow manages to penetrate through her five layers of clothing. Her school can simply not afford heat to keep their freezing students warm.
Should a college education be free you may ask? College can be expensive especially if you 're attending a school out of state. For example if you wanted to attend Ohio state University in state it would cost you $25,539 out of state it would cost you $44,731 out of state. That is expensive, but if college were to be free how would the school be making money.
Arpu Reed Professor Kamara English 102-004 6 March 2018 Why society needs free secondary tuition We as a society face several dilemmas that impact us in a detrimental manner. One of these difficulties or issues is students are being compelled to pay strangely high educational cost in addition to other things. A portion of the issues society face because we don't have free educational tuition is the high dropout rate due to financial problems, the limitation on who can attend, and the extreme stress students face because of this problem.
