Should the government control the cost of college tuition?

  • Yes, I do believe that the government should control the cost of college tuition.

    The government should do it because they are already paying for some regular schooling. There are a lot of people who do not have the money to send their child or go themselves. Even if the government would just give a little more money but make the students work for it. Maybe giving out better scholarships or grants. Those could help out even if it is not a ton of money. There should be some kind of system to see how much money the student earns and they could qualify for different money amounts or how well of a student they are.

  • The government should control the cost you have to pay for college tuition

    If the government did not control that, then most likely some money hungry person would take over the budget of it and we would have to pay so much more. The government at least stays in between certain stakes they have to keep the tuition somewhere around. The government goes over the cost it takes to live there, how much they need to pay the teachers and all the utilities of the building there not just trying to steal your money.

  • Government should control the cost

    The government helps in children getting an education now, I don't see much of a difference with college. I do believe its adulthood and that we should pay some too but the government should help. They want students to succeed in life. Not everybody has money in this world, but that doesn't mean they don't deserve and education and to one day succeed. If the government intercedes more people have a chance.

  • The government should control the cost of college tuition.

    The government should control the cost of college tuition because the price is increasing all the time. It costs so much to go to college and some people cannot afford the tuition. If it were to be controlled then more people could go to college and not have to pay thousands of dollars towards their education.

  • There should be a Regulated Maximum Tuition Cost

    The Government should absolutely control and regulate the cost of tuition. The average cost for tuition for the average student is becoming more and more unreasonable in today's society. Both the State and Federal Government should at least control the maximum tuition costs, so an affordable tuition is within reach of most young people. Idealistically speaking: the more educated people there are in the nation, the more jobs there are available, the more jobs there are available, the more opportunities for people are available, the more opportunities means the more prosperity and the more prosperity means the better the economy; therefore, the Government should see that regulating the cost of maximum tuition through grants and aid to universities would in turn help both the economy and society as a whole.

  • Yes the government should control the cost of college tuition...

    The main focus in completing school is to gain your High School Diploma and be able to move on to learning what you need to achieve the job(s) you are working towards. With the rising cost of college tuition many students are unable to attend the schools that offer the best classes and support, due to financial complications. If college tuition costs were controlled by the government a large percentage of students would be able to afford a college that best supports their educational needs, which would encourage more students to finish High School and be able to see achievement in working for a job that makes a lot more money than a normal "teenage" job. Without the encouragement and positive view of reality, students often don't feel the need to search for higher education towards that particular job field or just don't bother looking for higher education at all.

  • Yes the government should control the cost of college tuition.

    Government should control college tuition because they can give out financial aid and help the people who can't afford it. If the government controls tuition costs and keeps it low more people will be able to go to college, and the government will still make money off of it because it is in such high demand. Without the government only rich people could go to college because they couldn't afford the cost. The government can use taxes to lower tuition costs, and just focus on the actual schooling needed instead of too many extracurricular activities at colleges.

  • Government Should Control Tuition Cost

    College tuition is ridiculously expensive. The amount of money needed for college far exceeds the amount anyone "could" pay back. If the government would control the tuition to be paid, they could lower the amount for each student and give the colleges more money. With the government giving the schools more money, the amount that will be needed to be paid would go down and the burden of having to pay all the money back would be greatly reduced.

  • Government should control the cost of college tuition.

    Government should control the cost of college tuition. College tuition is just getting way too expensive these days, and the government needs to do some thing about it. So many young people can no longer achieve their dream of going to college because it is just way too expensive for them to attend.

  • Yes, the government should control the cost of college tuition.

    If not the federal government, the state governments should dictate the cost of college in order to make it more affordable to the public. A college education should not be only available to the exceptionally talented or the exceptionally wealthy. With the price controlled, more students would be able to continue their education, and that would help them and, in turn, the nation.

  • No, government should no control the cost of college tuition.

    Saying that federal government should control the cost of college tuition is not only absurd, but unconstitutional. Government would be invading the rights of personal American businessmen and businesswomen. I am not saying that other privately owned companies should not be regulated. Companies such as, tobacco and cigarette, have a limit on the price that is acceptable. College is similar in the fact that it is un-needed to sustain a financially successful life. College tuition is rising drastically, I understand that, however stating that young promising adults without the money to go to college cant be successful, is un-true. Grants and scholarships are available at the click of a pen for any well rounded individual searching for a college. If the government would control the cost of college tuition, it would do nothing but rise, considering our government is very poor with the regulation of money, i.e. our national debt. The regulation of college tuition wouldn't solve the rise of costs, it would in turn rise them higher.

  • Government shouldn't control college tuition

    "All government is corrupt" is probably my favorite quote of all time. At this day and age, our government is larger than it's ever been. Ideally, government is a regulatory tool that makes sure no businesses or institutions are breaking the law. In this case, government is the reason tuition costs are rising, and putting them in the front seat would only exacerbate the problem. Aside from this, many people aren't meant to go to college. This may sound harsh, but higher education is for those who want to succeed and become successful. As it is, universities and colleges are having trouble with state and federal funding as is and the last thing we need is the government swooping in to "try" and save the day.

  • The government should not have control over the cost of college tuition.

    More people today are pursuing higher degrees but the college cannot keep up to offer as much positions as needed, it's simple demand and supply problem and we should just leave it to the market. Also, with government subsidiaries, it makes it easier to get in the college and so the tuition went higher, that's also a problem.

  • Yes, by eliminating student loan programs and stopping inflation!

    Government should control the cost of college tuition, but not the way most people think they should. Asking the government to set up a program to make college more affordable is basically an oxymoron, government IS the cause of college tuition rising due to inflation, uncontrolled interest rates, regulation etc. First off, there is no federal delegation of education in the constitution, so the New Deal with student loans ended up doing the exact opposite of what it was intended for. Colleges are controlled by the states. It is wrong to ask private college not to make a profit, they are private!

  • Government should not control college tuition

    The Government should not have any involvement in college tuition. This will make less people able to afford college which will force them to work in trades or other occupations that are lacking workers. According to the Washington Post, only 27% of college grads have jobs in the major they studied. That means, in theory, college was a waste for 73% of students. They could have spent that time working in a trade or other service, and not spend their money on something that they don't use. State governments should be a helping hand, not a weight bearing crutch.

  • The government should not have control over the cost of college tuition.

    - We are a Capitalistic economy, and the colleges should have the right to manage tuition for their students. An idea: Supply and Demand.... Eventually, students will be pushed away because of the inflated price to go to that college and will go somewhere else. Due to a lack of enrollment, the college would have to lower their tuition in order to attract more students.
    - State government should be obligated to help, but should not control the funding.
    - Colleges should be hiring non-corrupt, and sound professionals to do the jobs right up top, rather than rolling in their enormous salary for unsatisfactory work and have students leaving college with a diploma, massive dept, and no job placement.
    - Tuition and loans are not good as it is, who's to say that the government is going to turn around and take proper control of the unfortunate financial situation we are in today.

  • Absolutely NO Government Control

    Everything the government runs is either inefficient, ineffective, costly, or a combination of all. They can't even take care of our Vets with a system and hospitals designated to our Veterans. The government will spend every dime they take in and then some. You keep hearing about "a revenue problem" with our debt, but it's a spending problem. Our government (as any government) can NEVER have enough of your money. Now you want them to control costs because you think "control" means it's going to be more affordable for you. Control means that you have no say in what's happening and they're able to keep adjusting your taxes to pay for it. Smarten up people. People from all over the world are coming to the United States and liberals in this country want to make us more like the rest of the world.
