college should be government funded because our parents pay taxes and college is an extention of highschool, so since our high school education is funded by the government it should continue into college. not only do our parents pay taxes but once we finish college and get a job then we have to pay taxes. the higher the job pays the more taxes we have to pay and by going to college we're more likely to have a higher paying job

Con

college shouldn't be government funded because some people might not have paid the taxes. If someone's parents hadn't paid taxes then there's no reason for the government's taxes to be used for that child's tuition. People should be responsible for their payment and can't rely on the government all the time. Some people also have lower jobs and their taxes may not be enough to pay for the college which their child might be going to.

because some people have lower the jobs, the government should pay for college. if the government wants us all to be productive members of society they we need to be educated and if we cant afford to pay for school then we wont be educated. so if they want something from us then they have to give us somthing in return. i disagree that we shouldnt rely on the government all the time, the reason they're there is for us to rely on them. thats why we vote for them and let them control everything.

Yes, the government may have to give us something in return if education really is that special to them, but the amount of money the government has is not enough to pay for colleges. Not everyone pays taxes and so the government doesn't have that much money. Tuition goes into paying for the professors, lunch, and other facilities. We have to rely on ourselves too, not just the government. We can't be sure that the government has enough to pay for all the expenses of college.

the government makes alot of money. just look at all the millions of people that take public transportation and that pay for tolls, thats millions of dollars everyday. plus theres alot of money that they spend that are on things less important than education. they need to get their priorities straight and spend money on things that are going to make the economy improve. by paying for college and us getting better jobs, the economy will improve.

There are many colleges and I don't believe that the government has that much money. Even if they did, that means anyone can get into any college. Education wouldn't really matter anymore. A student who has lower grades than a highly academic student may be able to go to a great college and their effort won't matter. Those who want to get into a good college work hard for it, but if students are just going to have a college handed to them because it's already paid for then it gives them no reason for any work or effort at all.
