If college is free then anyone can apply for jobs and we can end up with unprofessional people in important jobs.

If college were free, theoretically, you think you'd be going to school for free. This is wrong because the money has to come from someplace and that place is your taxes. More specifically, your property taxes. College still wouldn't be free, it'll just give you the illusion that it is.

If I was in charge of the colleges, and I knew the government was handing out money, I'd raise my prices too.

>Reported vote: Edril// Mod action: Removed<

3 points to Pro (Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: Con's argument is a non sequitor. Any one can already apply for any job, regardless of their education and definitely regardless of how much their education cost them. It does not follow that people who receive a free education are more likely to be unprofessional.

[*Reason removal*] The voter is required to either assess specific arguments from both sides of the debate or assess one side and examine that side"s burden of proof. The voter only assesses Con"s argument.

Did you know public education is funded primarily by property tax? So if we make college free than taxes will go up and all property owners " whether they have college-age children or not " will in fact pay for the free college. They will pay for the free tuition while soon-to-be college dropouts use student loans. Then, when the students attending "free" college default on their student loan, the taxpayer will once again have to pay for it.

If people were that smart, they would be getting a full scholarship and then they wouldn't HAVE to pay for it.
