Should In State College Be Free? The moment when you’re standing on that stage holding your diploma is a memory that will never fade. You’ll look back from pre-k till your senior year in highschool. A college education is almost mandatory in today’s society.
The institution received a decent $150,000 with an additional similar figure pledged for submission in future. The payment is aimed at supporting tuition payment to the less fortunate students in the school. Alternatively, the GREAAT Schools, Inc., became the prime agent of $5,000 from the DeVos Family Foundation. • The University of Maryland College Park Foundation grabbed the headlines when it was awarded with a $500,000 donation courtesy of its immense contribution to the development of art and science.
But how much does Washington actually spend? According to the New America Foundation, the federal government appropriated about $35.9 billion in grants and $32.6 billion in tax benefits for a total of over $72 billion in aid that does not need to be repaid. Technically, the government currently has enough money to cover tuition costs and more. With increased taxpayer support to back it up, instead of sending aid directly to students, the government could instead send it to the states under the condition that student funding remains at a certain level and colleges kept their tuition rates at a certain price. This approach would also help stop cost-inflation.
This idea was a big change from one dollar to millions of dollars but she is right, it would be a great alternative for the state of Hawaii and the Hawaiian people because then we would receive some type of restitution. Kahea.org says if this idea of rent being $45 - $50 million per year was installed long ago, we would be have roughly around $500,000,000 from the past 10 years for the state to use. This money could be used to help pave roads, create recreational centers for communities, build libraries, fund schools better, etc; with $500,000,000 dollars the whole entire state of Hawaii benefits from Mauna Kea. In other words if the Hawaiians take one for the team (allow telescopes to be built on top of Mauna Kea) then everybody such as the scientific community and the people of the state of Hawaii get benefits. Another way Kahea.org says the money could be used for is that it could fund the University of Hilo’s whole budget.
As I walked into the school, I immediately noticed how old the building was. You can tell sections of the building had been there for decades as doors, lighting and rooms resembled a style more fit for the 1980’s than the 2010’s. However, additions to the building have been added to accommodate size concerns, with those sections having newer structures and being better lit. However, I did notice, at least in my classroom, students had laptops to use, though the laptops were school property.
Today’s education system seems to be a problem in America because the society feels they are not receiving a fair opportunity to succeed. Funding College can have a negative outcome because colleges may become overcrowded and community college colleague’s wages may decrease. Degrees wouldn’t mean as much and taxes may increase. Community college being funded by the government can also have a negative impact on universities because everyone would go to a community before going to a university which could cause many problems. Funding college would add to the nation’s debt because the government would have to improve schools by reconstructing it, so more people would be able to attend the school.
This allows school districts with little or no money for building expansions to handle a growing student population and save millions of dollars in construction costs.” (Nair 2). Saving so much money could help schools afford better teaching equipment, which would most likely improve student grades. Next, a drawback is that it could be hard on families if the children have different school schedules. The change could make it difficult to plan a family vacation, go to summer camps,
Finally, the school board is worried that this funding and jobs from this program will take away from other school district. This is a non-starter; it was stated that the funding would be private funding. So therefore, the school district can’t rob Peter to pay Paul, they should see this funding as a gift
School funding is also based on the school population size. Why should newer schools with high income students get to have a lot more resources then the other schools with low income students. Why is it that lower income schools aren’t given the same resources to help the students? These students with low income do have the same opportunity as the higher income new schools. A lot of those students don’t have access to internet or even have a ride for transportation.
The poorer schools have to cut the electives that the students enjoy just for a test that claims a minor's intelligence level. Meanwhile the richer schools have electives, amazing sports teams, and even pay more money for more help on majors to prepare for the test. It is unfair that not every school gets the same preparation; some city schools do not get as much time which puts that school at a major disadvantage compared to the others. Almost every school spends money to pay for something unnecessary, when the money could go to much more important projects throughout the school.
Recently, more and more schools all over the country have turned to dress codes. Some people say that dress codes teach professionalism and protect students. However, schools should not have dress codes because dress codes target girls and limit their freedom of expression. They also are hard to enforce and students break them anyways. First, schools should not have dress codes because they target girls and limit freedom of expression.

Albert Einstein once said, "Everybody is a genius... But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid". Unfortunately, most school systems depict this quote. They judge a significant amount of the population by their ability to answer a few questions. They rate them with letters and numbers, and force students to be represented by these letters and numbers for the rest of their lives.
