I believe that colleges shouldn't charge students so much money to go to college. You can't put a price on education. Some students don't have that kind of money, so they can't go to college. If we have to pay, it should be as low as possible so we'd be able to pay for college.

You may think that but you are forgetting that not all of it goes to classes and dorms. There are other things involved in it like food, water, gas, electric, lab fees, etc. Think about that!!!!!!!!!!!!

What works against this premise is it is too radical as of right now. Arguing that one of the biggest for profit industries should be free in a capitalist society will come off as extreme. You may want to consider asking first, what countries offer free education and what are the results. Or ask why has the cost of education skyrocketed so much that only small populations of people can afford it (whether through family, inheritance, scholarships etc) while most others are going into so much debt that the ROI isn't even worth it in retrospect. Asking questions like these will probably lead you to a question of what is the middle ground? What is the perfect cost, amount of government investment/intervention it takes to make school both profitable for the Colleges and Universities while being worthwhile for the students.

You can't put a price on education. actually this statement hurts your cause, because it means education is priceless and we should pay anything for it

So what is the alternative for the colleges in terms of making a profit? Though college is expensive aren't professors, buildings, resources such as; computers, books, lab materials, etc. expensive for the college to purchase for the benefit of the students? And those are only a couple!

College also wants to prepare you for the real life where you have to start paying a lot of money. might as well start in college.
