Knowledge should not come with a price tag. I actually wish it was how it was back in the days when people were taught their professions by other people while on the job, or accepted into schools based on high marks. Winning a scholarship should be attainable to all people who do well academically.
some people cant afford it and if they really are showing intrest in getting a higher education they should be able not having to worry about the cost.
All we are hearing, is news of tuition rates increasing. This is not setting a very good example of the incentives for attending college. People need to be motivated, and feel inspired. College, is much more than memorizing key terms, for a quiz, suffering from sleep deprivation, and stressing over getting a 'REQUIRED' course cancelled at the last moment.
The focus, needs to be on the student's. Give student's the opportunity, and drive to discover the true joy of learning, without imposing all of the monetary constraints that have become so commonplace.
Education should be provided to every individual at no cost. Education should be out there to inspire peoples mind and not just filling their head with others perspective. Every individual has the right to learn and be educated, and have the opportunity to view this world in a different perspective and do something on their own. But the cost of education is so unaffordable to some mankinds that it is just ferocious for them to even consider paying those education bills off.
Education is the most important thing you can have. You can go anywhere with an education. We as humans need currency to get around and basically live, you wont have that if you dont have a job. A (good) job is acquired through an education. If you cannot afford an education, then you're considered a failure?
Everyone should have access to college educational opportunities. Just because you can't pay for it doesn't mean you shouldn't go. If higher education were free, maybe some people would be a bit brighter. And in my very personal opinion, if you haven't gone to college, then you should have no vote in whether college is free or not...
People have more opportunities for job and employment if they are educated meaning they have access to material conditions which they need for better life such as health care and some necessary services which give protection and safety. In addition, if someone from a poor background got educated, he or she can escape from the poverty cycle and generation gets improved with the help of jobs and being employed as a result of higher education. Higher education means good jobs and employment. If more people are highly educated, people will be more considerate, responsible, independent,and reliable for some reasons. All people should be given the rights to free education to get rid of poverty and inhumanity. It doesn't mean people who aren't educated are inhumane. Of course, there are some people out there who are way more intelligent and ethical then people who are educated.
As more people get degrees, jobs that required a High School diploma are now demanding Associates and Bachelor degrees. The lower your degree the more years of experience are demanded from you by the firm you are applying to. As a result, a college degree is becoming a necessity for High School graduates in order to find a job that pays a living wage.
The government should fund the universities and colleges directly rather than give out loans to students so that the students will not be overburdened by debt and be forced to move back with their parents. People are more reluctant than ever to start a family because they feel they cannot handle the expenses of a child while the married couple have yet to pay Uncle Sam his money. People will be less likely to spend money, which is bad for the economy and businesses; especially when people are underemployed because of the current economic climate.
If the government wants to truly stimulate the economy, they will forgive student loan debt so that people can get that piece of paper that qualifies them for a job, start their lives, and get the money flowing out of the pockets and into the economy.
From a quality standpoint, making higher education a taxpayer funded entity will not diminish it's quality. What will diminish it's quality, however, are the individual professors that care more about their own projects and research than teaching students; which is what is happening today. The schools can remain prestigious by accepting those who meet their standards, prestige should not be based on how much money you spend for your degree.
Making higher education free is a fiscally and socially responsible decision that will ensure everyone has a chance to earn a degree without having to jump through hoops in order to get enough money to attend a college/university. This country could enjoy a well-informed and educated population that contributes a great deal to our nation. As it stands today we as a country are one of the least educated among first world nations, and I firmly believe that this is because higher education is out of reach for so many. This needs to change.
In the US, higher education is seen as a privilege and not a right, but not everyone has that privilege and with the way higher education costs now, less and less people will be able to go. Sure there's aid, but it's not enough to cover the rising costs without putting students into an insane amount of debt. There's only a limited amount of money one can take out without having that extra stress in their lives, and not everyone can get their parents to pay or help take out loans. For example, my parents couldn't cosign for me to take out student loans for college because their credit was so terrible (they lost their house a few years ago). I was then told by the financial aid office "you don't have to go to college if you can't afford it". Now a year has passed since then and I'm planning to drop out because the costs have risen even more and I'm getting less aid. Eventually this has to stop, because clearly the way things are going now don't work and they haven't for a long time now.
Education is a necessity in our world. If someone really desires to have post secondary education but legit cannot afford it he or she should not be denied education. Educated people stimulate economic growth! People that are educated will also be able to afford (in most cases) post secondary education for their children!
How will a country go forward if its people are not educated to a certain level? We all want to improve and learn and expand our horizons Education is becoming more about if you have money, and that should not be the case. It is stopping people from doing what they want to do in life.
Free college will help the economy to recover. Today, young graduates having a hard time finding jobs and paid too much debt and their fertility rates fell. If the college education is free, then, young graudates have a easy time to find jobs, paid less debt, and having a much children. Then, the economy recover.
Knowledge is power, and those in power have devised away to keep those not in power under their thumb. But what those in power are unable, or unwilling to realize is that like all things, change happens, something every human being fears, and the power eventually fades. Most of the arguments I see against free education have to do with Taxes, which in a very educated society would become irrelevant, especially in today's world. The way I see it, There is one thing, and only one thing the government should be in charge of, and that is the well being of it's citizens. When citizens are uninformed, its employees are uninformed. When its employees are uninformed its government is uninformed, and when the government is uninformed, the infrastructure of the entire civilization decays, and collapses in on itself. It has happened before, and unless we fix the fundamental problems plaguing our civilization, it will happen again.
Making higher education free would not make EVERYONE go to college and over utilize what sources are provided. Some people WANT to be laborers, or car mechanics. It would allow people who want to dedicate their time to studies to be able to, if previously they would have been hindered by money.
Students with a focus and a respect for education should be able to get a higher education if they so want, not just those who can afford it and their parents told them that it is the right thing to do. It should be the merit of the student applying that is important, not their finances.
We must have a society that understands how the world works and can progress into a better tomorrow. Without education people will just go into the working force (blue collar) and as a country we will fall back and will not be able to compete with this technology driven economy.
Those children are the future of the world. If not, this world will cease to have good education.This way of learning is to pass the information on through generations, or the info will be lost in the ether. This is a good idea to educate all children for the future.
I believe that everyone has the right to be educated. However, not everyone affords gong or sending their kids to the university. All of us have equal rights, so all of us should pay the same amount of money for education, or pay no money at all. There are so many people all over the world who would be happy if they were able to go to universities, and our we hear the word "school" and want to die. This is pretty unfair for everyone, isn't it?
Our economic freedom and military defense of the United States will one day be determined by science and technology which will require a highly trained and well educated public. In fact I believe that some of our military budget should be education focused since it will insure our defense. I also believe however that students should qualify through testing and merit. University isn't for everyone and for those that are not college caliber there should be schools providing technical and skilled labor training. Educating people will pay for itself and keep us competitive in world markets, and should we fail to rise to this need then we had all better start learning Chinese.
Because its not fair to give some credit for other people. Theres also a thing called "Racis". And its hard for people to have that much money for something thats going to happen one time. Maybe theres a kid who is very smart and lives in poor condition. He would want to be someone and become something for his family. So YES there should be free education. It might even encourage Kids to learn.
Any education should be provided for free because everyone should have a chance to get it, especially developing countries in which many families don't have enough money to send their child to school. And as the result we often face illiteracy. Free education could improve the level of development of the society all in all, people would be busy with much more serious and global problems of nowadays than today, which could be easily solved in case the world would have more brilliant and educated minds.
Why do students drop-out of college? The answer is simple, according to a research conducted by Apollo, 71.3 percent of students drop out because of the cost of college. That’s near 3/4th of the population of college students. The United States is ranked ninth in the amount of adults attending college. However; there is a big gap in the college attainment. Only a little more than half of students from low to medium income families attain college, while pretty much every kid from a wealthy family enrolls in college. That, however, is not as big of a problem as the fact that only 25 percent of those students from the low income families graduate. As for our academics, the U.S. is actually lagging behind. In the PISA or program for international student assessment, the U.S. Scored place twenty-five on the list. In the top place was Finland. The U.S. scored below the average in the math score. A research at The Hoover Institute named Eric A. Hanushek found out a surprising calculation. If the United States could up its math score by 40 points, we could add between 7 and 11 percent to the GDP in the next 80 years. This Money would be substantial to fund college.

Education is a human right. To be discouraged from attaining a higher educational degree based on the inability to pay up is unjust. A brilliant mind could come from any background, be it from an impoverished household or a wealthy one. To prevent one mind from expressing the brilliance it holds would be a great loss to the progress the nation is still making to address cultural, social, and economic issues. Opening up free education to all would also increase the numbers of skilled/professional workers desperately needed to tend to the exponentially growing population.
Providing education to everyone will conclude with a smart society and clean minds that will be surrounded with latest technology and services. For example, engineering, health, business, art, design and a lot of majors. This will lead to an easier lifestyle with the minimum cast that will be required. Also it gives them the ability to think differently. Furthermore, education is simply the key to success. "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." This quote emphasizes the fact that education is the bedrock of social and economic development.
The whole world should have free and open education that encourages creativity, cooperation, leadership, motivation, innovation, and, love of learning. This will be important in the ages to come because history has taught us nothing if it has not taught us that no man, no army, no nation can stop change, and those who do not adapt, collapse. And every great Nation and Empire that believed that they would be eternal fell, because they ignored the unsustainable systems of government, economy, and education that created and maintained elitism of class, wealth, and, education.
People should all be treated the same no matter how rich or poor you are. Everyone deserves a post secondary education, it helps you decide and educate yourself on what hobby or profession you will take on as a job in later life. Sometimes in life we make accidental decisions, on what course in college or university we should take. And then you get on the job and you find out you are not interested or intrigued in that profession, and so you should be offered another course for free.
I believe every one should be offered a post secondary eduction no matter how high class or low class you are, FOR FREE !
To star with education is a fundamental human right. There must be commitment to high quality education that is available to all. Education is one of the most important event of the human's life, but nowadays not everyone can afford it. It must be accessible for everyone. These people need support!
With a higher education status it is easier to find higher level jobs and is best for most people. If everyone was able to have access to university it would be easier for poorer people to change their living situation. Also people who are smarter and cannot afford to go will then be able to go possibly help our country move forward in evolution.
Free education would make more people go to school (because everyone could afford it), not have to worry about adding or dropping classes and what that means financially, students and adults would not have to worry about paying off financial loans that could be with them for years and years, would cause much less stress on students, and overall people could get better jobs easier because they were able to go to school and get a degree for a good job instead of being stuck in a job and not being able to get out of it.
All other nations of the civilized world have their higher education systems free, or greatly less than the United States. As a nation the cost of college has increased 1,120 percent over the past thirty years. College in Europe is at most five thousand a year and that covers the meal plan for an American university...
Currently, Americans altogether are in 1.1 trillion dollars of debt. Most people can't buy that new house or new car after college because they are buried in debt! Just think about it, all that money these students would save would go that new car and house, which will boost the economy. Also, more people will go to college which will create a demand for faculty and expansion of schools, which will then create more research opportunities, which will then lead to new inventions and new companies and what do these companies need? Employees! It's a chain reaction! Not only that, think of all the fancy new technology that were invented in the past 20 years. Who will run these machines in the upcoming generations if no one can afford to learn how to! All I'm saying is think of the future!
I think that education should be free. Because a lot of smart people who do not have enough money to be able to study at the university. In my country there are two types of education: free and paid. Those who are studying for free get a scholarship. If you hand over all of the exams for high scores, the scholarship becomes greater. It is very good for not rich students. Sorry for my english, it's not perfect.
I couldn’t agree more with the opinion that education should be free to everyone. Free education can not only enhance person, but also is beneficial to society.
On one hand, each person has the duty as well as the right to receive education. When we were born, the brain is empty: we were not able to speak and to cognate the world. The parents taught us little by little, and we did learn it. As we grow up, we want to know more about and to explore the world. However, it is beyond the capability of the family to resolve. So, government should freely provide the opportunity of study for them, no matter young people or adult. I strongly agree that free education will cost much money. However, in fact, the money comes from people’s tax. As a social group, you must do your best to enhance people. As an individual, you must know the world with objective mind, which need rich experience and knowledge.
On the other hand, enhancing every person is beneficial to society. As the saying, science is the first productive force. The advancement of science strongly depends on the social education. Only the society provides a good education, people can learn more knowledge. Education is the driving force of social progress.
Higher education should be free because not every family can afford it. Everyone should have the same opportunity to learn. School shouldnt be about who has money, it should be about who is smart enough and motivated enough to attend. Also, if universities were free or at least cheaper, everyone would have a fair chance at getting a job and having a comfortable life. Frankly, $60,000 a year for education is a little ridiculous to me
I would love to see the U.S. Adopt a more European view of education, and have it cost little, or even be free.
The current forms of higher education in the U.S. Are very expensive. Having a merit-based system would be great. The standards for staying in school could be raised, such as having to maintain a high grade point average, being banned from school a year, instead of academic probation, and to take out sports from the universities, and make them a different playing field, all their own.
It gives us lots of benefit if we make the higher education free. It provides the country a lot of skilled workers that would work for the country. It also gives everybody same chance to learn and experience more; and almost everyone will be educated at least more than when the tuitions are expensive.
It`s known today that if you want to get a higher education you have to pay for it! But from my point of view it`s absolutely wrong! Because there are a lot of intelligent people who haven`t money to pay for their education, and we have people who are not clever enough to study in university or college, but they have money and that is why they can afford to have a study in university or college! I want to say that we have to pay attention on brains not to money!

This topic has been debated for many times. The reason why we pay for universities is to support the government. But look at how many taxes we already pay. There is a large amount of intelligent people out there that we don't even notice. Malcolm X dropped out of school because he didn't have the money, but now look at the difference he's made in our lives. There could someone in Africa right now who has the brain of Albert Einstein, but the US does not even think about having an exchange student from there. We as Americans are not making the right choices. I hope everyone agrees with me.
The cost of providing higher education would not outweigh the benefits of society. Most employers want to hire an employee with a degree and preferably some experience; so, a degree would be necessary for a majority of jobs. Moreover, this would not exacerbate the unemployment issue, as more qualified individuals would be consuming more distinguished jobs. e.g. There is an estimated 500 open architecture jobs in Ohio, not anyone can walk off the street and become an architect. More students going to college would thus increase the number of architects able to fill these open jobs. There have not been any unemployed people, but instead 500 hired.

One of the main differences between poverty and wealth is a good education. Inner city youth are statistically more likely to drop out of high school or, at the most, stop at a high school diploma. Suburban kids and elite neighborhoods with little to no crime have well-educated and, thus, well-employed residents.
Knowledge should not come with a price tag. I wish it should be free because it can save my mother budget for support my whole family. Universities tend to be judged by the test scores of their incoming students and not on what students actually learn once they attend these institutions.
The Government could mandate that Universities could only charge so much, then make up the monetary difference by giving Universities money, and mandate that Loan companies only charge so much interest for loans and offer more Student Loans and if your job would be let's say a teacher or public servant the gov could write off some of your debt....Not free education but much more cost effective.
There are many talented students who does not have money to pay for school. If simply cannot afford highter education then their talent is wasted.
Higher education is the way of the future, and the way to progress in what is now a global economy. I've always believed that by junior year of high school, students should be required to choose 2 years in the military, 2 years in vocational/trade school, or two years at a college-level institution to receive an associates degree. With a better start in life and a higher income from either of these paths, students would be on better track to self-pay for any additional education or start a career.
Low income family members can't afford a four or six year university education with financial aid or loans alone. With free higher education, there would be less debt that people would have to owe. In addition, budget cuts and unemployment of staff and professors would decrease because the state wouldn't have to give money to students in order for them to take classes at universities.
You can take or drink water in the sea as much as you want because it is not made in USA, or Indonesia. No country or no one put the water there On the other hand, water in a bottle (mineral water) is produced by someone or enterprise with a lot of investment. How can the two same different things likened ? Higher education is the mineral water that is produced by professors with high investment. It should not be free. Another reason is at free higher education leads to poor quality because it will be supplied or served by low paid (unmotivated) human resources. BRAVO GATS
There should be special student loans for those who have less money, but not free. If they could find a way to do this without raising taxes and increasing spending, I'd be fine. To be quite honest, that won't happen.
Generally I would say that it’s a good thing, to offer education to all for free. But if you take a special view on this, you will notice, that the government cannot offer free education just like that. The government would have to make more money, so they would increase the taxes. So it’s another way of redistribution.
And if you think, that everyone would have better chances for a job now, then you are wrong. Because there are also other skills asked for some jobs which you can’t learn at the university, for example practice experience. So it’s a bad thing, to offer free education to everyone.
If we made education free I feel that the value for education would plummet in a downward spiral, along with the value for education. The reason why we value our high education so much is because we know we're putting a lot on the line for the education we seek. The loans we have taken out for this education is what reminds us why we're pursing out this dream. If it was free we wouldn't have as much drive and not to mention many would abuse this education policy. If we made education free how would the professors who teach us get paid? Or the faculty who serves the school? There are many issues with making education free. But if they could lower tuition and give colleges more funding to help support students with their educational needs that would be the proper solution to this issue.
Look what people are doing with their rights, which are mostly free. Even if you got it free, that would just start different way of not letting in some people into the best schools. More tests, more everything. Making it free would make it good for some professors as the demand could go up, but then it would be just like a high school program.
Don't just see the 10 percent of iceberg, lets dig till the bottom of it. From where will the money come? Obviously they'll raise all taxes. And it will make the poor more poorer and have no chance at all to send their kids to school. Institution that provides loan will incapable of helping them anymore since if the free education was relevant at that time. All the expenses and daily needs will be more expensive than before. It will be a burden to all...
Especially when it comes to other means of collecting money from the masses. It is highly likely that the government will expect income from other sources such as rise in tax and ultimately rise in everything possible. And to add, providing it for free means bad quality of education because everyone can afford to have it. Teachers will be less inspired to teach since what they do is something the children hardly value, because they got it for free. Schools also will be of less quality since everyone has access to it. In short, good things come with a price.
There are already tons of graduating college students out there competing for the same few jobs. The more desperate they become, the more likely they will be to accept those "good" jobs at lower pay. Also I think it says a lot about a person who worked really hard to come up with the money to put themselves though school. In the U.S., I know from personal experience that anyone can do it if they put the time in and work hard enough. I earned the majority of my tuition working two jobs near minimum wage, I borrowed the rest and I am paying it off with the job the college degree helped win me. If it becomes free employers will expect it from everyone as a basic requirement, and having a college degree won't mean much more than having a high school diploma. This country cannot afford to be offering any more handouts, though I do favor this handout over funding some other country's war.
The cost of providing higher education would outweigh the benefits to society. Many vocational jobs require apprenticeships and in-house training, rather than a college degree. So, a college education would not be necessary for many. Furthermore, this would likely further exacerbate the unemployment issue, as there would simply be more qualified candidates vying for the same career opportunities.
Money is needed to fund education, research, and advancements. Tuition is necessary, and as soon as you hand out education for free, the overall value of that education will go out the window.
I agree that the tuition should be greatly reduced, but not totally free. Some college kids think that college is the time to party and not worry about their education. That's one factor in the number of drop-outs.
How would the professors get money if the students don't pay for it. Even if a government pays tuition fee for us, they will eventually raise tax rates and prices of things what we need in our daily life. That means we are getting what we should get from the government.
Hello i think that we should not have free eductaion sure its good but how is the goverment going to fund it. And they will probably be raising taxes than and what if the country in debt they would have to borrow money from other countries making them in more debt and than they will have no money left
In order for higher education to be free for all the government would have to finance this by taking money from other things or by raising taxes so ultimately it isn't free at all .
By making university free and potentially accessible to all you are lessening the quality and stature of the qualification. In the past when it has been free there was a large number of students going "just for the experience" and doing almost worthless degrees simply giving themselves something to do for three years.
By making university less attainable and of actual cost to the individual it will hopefully be taken more seriously by people who actually want to learn -not socialise , and be seen prestigious like it once was .
If higher education was free the citizens of the United States would have to pay more taxes because the government would be supporting all the universities who have no other means for funds. The citizens would then get furious because the government would go broke because taxpayers would get furious because the government.
If its free the government have to pay for all the universities and then they have to raise the taxes in order to not go into debt because of the schools and the people have to pay for the taxes so it absolutely nothing and your back at stage one.
With free education, one will not have to worry about dropping out of college or a university because their "education" will be free. Furthermore, I believe that many would take advantage of "free education" by not challenging themselves to study and learn, but just to sit there and most likely distribute others from learning.
Higher education must be elite. I mean, nowadays there are too many specialists who are not specialists at all, but they have graduated from the university. This situation is very common in Russia and other post-Soviet countries. It would be much better for lecturers to teach a small group of people, but teach them carefully.
Most people that say yes to free higher education are saying that its a right, that its an entitlement, and that they can't afford it so it should be free. But they fail to think about it realistically and look at evidence thats right in front of us in free (otherwise known as government/taxes) programs. There is not enough money in the america to fund higher education and have it be of a quality that makes it worth it to have, short of taxing the people a huge percentage of their income. Schools would be over crowded and underfunded. People would go to college without any intention of getting a degree and would end up being career students, and we already have a lot of that today even with people going into huge debt. The value of a Bachelors degree is already much less valuable today because of how many people get them today. Is college overpriced because they put money into multimillion dollar football stadiums and movie theaters and is turning colleges into country clubs? Yes. Could it be free? No. People need to start thinking of college as an INVESTMENT and not as an entitlement. If you put 50,000 dollars into the stock market and they company goes under, you lose your money. College may not be as unpredictable as the stock market, but the same principals apply. Go to Community College, work, don't party all the time, don't live at school unless you have to (which you shouldn't really but people will make that argument). Nothing in this world is an entitlement. By the way I'm a college student and because of how I made my INVESTMENT I will not be in debt for the rest of my life.
Come on. I mean, if you're gonna give free education to everybody, especially when you're talking about higher education (Which I'm going to assume is tertiary education), you cannot, you simply cannot, fund every single student for a place in college. Do you know how expensive colleges are? Do you know how much the tuition fees are? Why are they so expensive? It's because they're very extensive and inclusive, often ranging from mid-high quality tuition, to high quality tuition.
So, how do we solve this problem of not being able to supply free education to everybody? Simple. We provide scholarships. An increase in scholarships will encourage students to work harder to be able to enter his or her desired college. It also gives the school a more competitive side, as they are able to choose who gets or does not get the scholarship. So if you DO get in, you are definitely going to be respected, as you put in A LOT of effort in attaining that one scholarship. Also, you will definitely feel more achieved. More accomplished by being able to persevere through the hard time in which you were probably preparing for the biggest exam/interview/test, of your life.
Funding education to all is a huge expense, a massive burden to both the public and the government. Therefore, only those who show significant level of dedication, commitment and work ethic should be provided with free education. As, I believe too many people would take advantage of the free education and all of those tax dollars would be wasted. More people joining university or college, only to drop out or barely pass their courses.
Free education should be used as an incentive instead of just a hand out. If the incentive to working hard and receiving good grades was free further education, I believe that it would be effective. Furthermore, providing free education would not have much benefits to all, as there would be a lot more graduates, however, many of them would not be able to find a job, due to the fierce competition. Therefore, they would have just wasted a couple of years of their life, not to mention lots of resources. In conclusion, providing free education to all would not benefit the masses, just the few who are determined to succeed and work hard.
They need the money to pay for the teachers and equipment to teach they students. If everyone had degrees then the value of it would drop and there would be more failures and drop outs. Plus no money to pay for security and the classrooms, books, repairs and everything the school has to offer like sports teams.
It is too much of a strain on the government and the economy of a country to expect them to fund all university education. It also means that taxes are higher because the state needs to pay for university and people who are not involved in universities will have to pay more even though it will not benefit them.
Schools need the money! Now a days everything needs money. Government is running out of money. Theres bills to pay. Theres the heat, theres the power, theres the supplies, theres the water. These things all need money. And of course there are scholarships. I believe that scholarships give talented people opportunities but the supplies for those people need money.
Nothing is free people your still going to have to pay for higher education one way or another. Making higher education free would only make quality of the schools worse. Second higher education is not a necessity in fact if you don't go to college and you trade those years for pure job experience instead you will probably be on a equal or better standing than someone who went to college and has no experience. Lastly there are much better ways to lower cost of education, let schools compete and get government out of the way,
