A vibrant modern economy requires a well educated work force and a college education is essential to function as a part of the modern labor force. If the ability to pursue a college education depends solely on one's wherewithal, then a large part of the potential labor force is shut out. Government support for college education is essential to allow wide spread access for many of the poor. This initial investment by the government will be repaid once they become productive and tax payers.

I believe a family who earns 5 million dollars and the student opts out to not use family money and get financial aide is taking away from the students whos family makes 15,000 and has many expenses. In addition, if a student does to John jay he or she can get a scholoship therefore he is founded. If he/she maintaines high gpa and work expeirence he she c
