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.
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.
