  • I think they should

    Colleges are places where students go to learn and if they don't have enough money they wont be able to attend college, and they wont receive the right education. Some people have poor families and cant afford to go to college, so they cant support their family. They could still pay for books and supplies but that's enough for them to pay for.

  • It think they should be free

    For example if you don't have money to pay for school, that would be sad, and if your parents think is to much expensive, your not going to that college because of the money, so i think colleges should be free for everyone who needed and for someone who want it, and of course for someone who wants to go more farther then they are. And finally COLLEGES SHOULD BE FREE.

  • Yes they should be free....

    Many people in this world are cruel to children so they should get a free college so they can get a good education. So I believe that kids should be treated fairly and go to college. Many kids are very smart but they don't have the money for an education.

  • Yes college education should be free

    With this more people would have a chance. Some families don't have enough money to support their children eve with jobs and they are left with no option. This would benefit many students every where across the U.S. Yes I agree some would drop out, but there should be standers such as a certain GPA to know that the student are serious about their learning.

  • Colleges should be free!

    There are many poor people in the world and some of them are homeless. It would help those people get a job by earning a degree. They would earn money and could buy an apartment , condo or maybe even get a house. They could have a better life with food, water, pets, furniture, T.V an maybe even a family .That's why I think colleges should be free.

  • Yes yes yes

  • I believe that people should be able to attend state-owned colleges for free

    People should be to attend state-owned colleges because a person's education should not have to cost anything. A person's education is to benefit himself or herself in the today's society and to benefit his or her's country and economy. So many more people would be able to attend college without the expensive cost. Many people will be without debt or have a way smaller debt because they don't have to deal with college debt.

  • Darn skippy they should!

    Because my parents don't have the money to be paying no $30,000 a year so that I can get an education. Primary and secondary education was free, so should be post-secondary education. It is not fair. All students should be able to attend schools without worrying if they have enough money or if they will be able to apply for financial aid. If that means the taxpayers have to pay more, then so be it. Everyone has a chance.

  • Yes, everyone will have a chance

    People who have a high enough GPA then they should be given the opportunity to go to a college and should not be restricted by how much money they have to pay for their college tuition. Money should not be an issue for someone trying to help the country by learning.

  • Yes, other countries do it!

    Other countries have free education and it works out very well for them. We should have it too. A student should never have to change their choice of college for financial reasons. This is cruel and unjust. A college education should be available to any capable student who wants it.

  • Absolutely Should Not Be Allowed

    Because that leaves people who honestly don't care about college to waste spots of other people that actually do care. And also, if the school is free how are teachers going to be payed. If teachers are not payed then the county or state has to pay. But what happens when they run out of money. When they run out the teachers cannot be payed. And when the teachers are not payed they will leave. And when the teachers leave then the students who care cannot be taught. And then that will lead to generations of stupidity unless they can afford for a high standard college.

  • No, because there would be no people working at stores and restaurants.

    If they're is no one working at the stores and restaurants how are we going to get the food we need and supplies if no one is working there? There is a higher percentage of the people going to college rather getting payed minimum wage from these stores if college was free. The only people that would be working at the stores and restaurants would be high schoolers and they can't work 24/7 because they have there school to attend to.

  • No they shouldn't

    Absolutely positivley not I will be discussing, today the argument of whether state colleges should be free to attend or not.
    A recent survey showed that 46% of people say no. And 54% say yes i say no to this for many reasons which i will get to towards the end. First i have an opinionated statement from both sides perspectives from the yes side says
    “I believe that people should be able to attend state-owned colleges for free
    People should be to attend state-owned colleges because a person's education should not have to cost anything. A person's education is to benefit himself or herself in the today's society and to benefit his or her's country and economy. So many more people would be able to attend college without the expensive cost. Many people will be without debt or have a way smaller debt because they don't have to deal with college debt. By anonymous “
    i somewhat agree with this. But already as it is a lot of people do not care for education which is horrible but true and doing this would let people get free food and more opportunities for violent people to hurt others. The no side says
    “ No, there are too many slackers in college for the partying already.

    If state colleges were free, it's reasonable to assume every aimless teenager would attend, whether he actually wanted to learn anything or not. Colleges already offer huge grants, making college very affordable to students who have shown strong academic ability and the focus to use what they are taught. Also, loans are readily available to make college possible for students who need them. Loans encourage students to understand that college is not a chance to party in togas without your parents grounding you, it's an investment in your future. We need more students to take their college education seriously, not more students who want to party and don't feel like getting a job. “ and with this i totally agree, what he has said is 100% completely true. In my opinion i would say no because as the last statement argued my teens do not care for education. But still many do. And if state colleges are free to attend many careless teens will JOIN TO GO TO PARTIES AND HAVE FUN WHEN SOME TEENS ACTUALLY WOULD LIKE AND INTUITION. BUT WHEN THESE CARELESS KIDS CARE THE KIDS WHO CARE CAN NOT JOIN BECAUSE THE SCHOOL IS FULL. AND IF THE SCHOOL IS FREE HOW WILL THE TEACHERS BE PAID? IF THE TEACHERS WILL NOT BE PAID THE SCHOOL ASKS THE GOVERNMENT FOR MONEY AND WHEN THEY CAN GET NO MORE MONEY THE TEACHERS QUIT. AND WHEN THE TEACHERS QUIT THE SCHOOL CLOSES. LEAVING THE KIDS WITH NO INTUITION WHAT SO EVER. FROM THE RECENT EVENT A CHART VOTED 50/50 ON THIS DEBATE.ALSO THEY WILL MOLEST AND HAVE SEX WITH 20 GIRLS

  • Very High Taxes

    The average cost of a state college is about 40-80 thousand dollars, per student. Say 40,000 students attend that college. This means that just from that school 4-8 billions dollars are being given away. There are over a hundred state schools in the country. So the total cost of free college in this country is over 400-800 billion dollars. Now this might not seam like a big deal but it is. The federal government has to make up this money. How are they going to do this? Tax the citizens of the U.S. Yes the tax rate would explode if state colleges were free.

  • Terrible for the Economy

    The money students pay for tuition goes to the professors' salaries, and to the University. If it were to be free, the government would have to pay for it, which would come out of our tax money. Plus, there are 50 states, and if there are a few colleges per state, that is 100 universities with a couple thousand of dollars per each pupil, and pay the teachers and other staff, it's too much, which is why colleges do cost money. If everyone has the same education, no matter how smart or well behaved they have been throughout their lives in high school, then what exactly is the point of college?

  • Are you kidding?

    College is a choice, if you are planning to attend much like anything else in life you take the necessary steps for this planning. Saving money, applying for financial aide, getting good grades in high school for scholarship opportunities.
    College is about furthering your education so you can get thoes higher paying jobs.

  • No, there are too many slackers in college for the partying already.

    If state colleges were free, it's reasonable to assume every aimless teenager would attend, whether he actually wanted to learn anything or not. Colleges already offer huge grants, making college very affordable to students who have shown strong academic ability and the focus to use what they are taught.

  • No, they shouldn't.

    No, I do not think that state colleges should be free to attend. I am currently a college student, and while this sounds nice on paper, I don't think it would be in the long run. I think that a big part of the reason why some colleges are so nice is because they charge for admission.

  • Its a privilege

    I honestly think its a privilege to go to college. Some kids take college for granted anyway. Some kids just think college is a time to be free from your parents, and go to college parties and have fun being a young adult. But that's not what it is. Its to learn and find what your going to do in life. If college was for having parties and having fun being 18 or whatever, then every teenager would go.
