I do not think college should be government funded because college is not for everyone and sometimes students take advantage of the finanicial aid and the benefits that the school has to offer . This then leads to alot of money being wasted because people go to school and end up not passing classes and wasting even more money .
Every student should be given a fair chance to attend college. In that first chance they have to prove that they are taking avantage of what the government has offered them. How could you prove they are taking advantage of the funds for their personal use?
I can prove this to be a fact because i know people that have done this in all my years of college. It also shows when the students end up with bad grades at the end of the semester . t shows that all this money has been spent on supplies , computer labs , books and new classrooms just so that at the end of the semester students are left with failing grades and low gpas. Statistics show students who pay for their education out of pocket generally do better in school and maintain high gpas!
You might have a valid point but does that show that every student that has their college tuition payed by the government have the same mentality ? Do they all do the same? Do they all have low gpa's ? Is not fair to those that want to go to college and do something with their lives to be judged by those careless and reckless students, who only attend college to get check disimbursements from financial aid.
You have also made a valid point .That being said who is to say that the government should be responsible in any way for mess ups. Sure a majority of students do really want to learn and have a brighter future but who will take the blame for all the lost funds . Who will pay off the government's debt ? There really is no other way other than the statistics to show that it is not in the best interest of the government to pay for college education . It is definitely way be safe then sorry !
