  • Public education is free any way

    I think that yes you should pay for your college education. I think this because PUBLIC education is free anyway so if you want to go to college you should pay for it because it is not mandatory like k-12 grade. So yes you should pay for your education in my opinion.

  • How would the schools get money?

    If no one is paying for a college, the school where would the school be getting its money from? Taxes? If students pay for their education, they are paying for teachers to be enthusiastic about teaching them. The school would be getting money to pay for renovations, textbooks, upgrades, etc.

  • Education is Costly

    Aside from elementary and high school education, students should be required to pay for their education. Colleges have high operating costs to accommodate thousands of students, and each student should pay their fair share. Enough financial aid and other solutions are available to allow the average person to attend school after all.

  • You pay somehow someway anyway, might as well come directly from you.

    I'm not an advocate of a middle man (governments) they usually complicate things, not to mention take their own share of the pie before moving it on. Any money eventually has to come from somewhere, and if the government ran all schooling systems with no upfront charge, then the debt would go through the roof, much like it already is because of this 'free' thinking. Nothing is ever free. Everything has a cost. I would like to direct you to http://www.debate.org/debates/Governemt-Should-Intervene-to-Lower-College-Costs/1/, where I think con did a wonderful job summing up the more technical reasons (involving supply and demand among others) for why controlled cost education, especially in college would be both a bad idea and a failure. Be warned it is fairly long, which is why I didn't want to get into it here.

  • Yes, you should have to pay for an education.

    Yes, I believe that is important to pay for an education. Paying for an education puts the burden of finishing an education solely in the hands of the payee, and also forces the person paying for the education to appreciate the value and hard work it takes to receive an education.

  • Yes, you should pay for your education.

    While it would be very nice to live in a world where we could get valuable things like education for free, the reality is that you need to pay at least a few dollars in order to get an education. Doing so gives education value and that's something we want recognized.

  • Yes, I believe you should have to pay for an education.

    While I believe that there's nothing wrong with the concept of paying for an education itself, I think the real problem is that we have to pay so very much for an education.

    Universities, even online ones, take a good deal of money to run. Everything from salaries, equipment (computers, etc.), to the various buildings needed, along with their upkeep, cost money that has to come from somewhere, and I don't think taxes alone could pay for them.

    That said, I don't see why people have to go deep into debt to obtain an education that should be seen as a solid, important , and necessary investment into the future of the country.

  • I support universal education.

    I believe that the government should pay all tuition for public elementary schools, public middle and high schools and public colleges and public post graduate schools. I do not support private school vouchers. Without even discussing whether or not I feel it is a right for people to be provided a full education, I simply believe it is a good investment on the government's behalf. The increase of GDP from a better educated country would more than pay for the cost of investment.

  • Education is limited for people based on price

    Many people cannot afford to attend school, the rich isn't limited to this, they can usually buy their way in. When the students who don't have the money to pay for college needs to do things like sports in order obtain something like a scholarship, which nowadays are harder then they've ever been to get.

  • I am disabled and can not work

    I have Epilepsy, learning Difficulties and Autism I can not work, I am on benefits, I can not put my full opinion in as it says to many words, but in any case, the money payed for education is used by governments to do stupid things like run MI6 and CERN.

    They should use that money from taxes and education for medical research and beautification of locations. When a place looks nice you are more likely to feel happy and crime in the area decreases.
    But no over £5000 for an A Level maths course gets spent on things like Side Winder Missiles for the military, when the government can work on diplomacy

    I Get £250 a month for bills and £400 for my day to day needs, I get a further £400 personal budget which I do not see a pent off as this is used to pay my support workers.
    At the end of each Month I have between £20and £35 so at the end of each year I have under £400.

    Being unable to study due to cost of courses does not help my situation. If I were in a position were I could work, I would go and get myself a job as I am already a Qualified Computer Repair Technician.
    But the conditions of the benefits I receive say I am unable to work more than 16 hours a week or earn more then £20 a day.

    That is like work one day and get yourself a Takeaway.

    As I am Epileptic I am unable to drive, and because of my Autism I get lost easily. So long distance is not an option for me with out transportation, and in most cases I can not afford transportation.

    So I do not believe you should have to pay for Education, If I was able to study with out cost, I would still have the option of studying for my dream job of working as a Hardware Engineer, but this has gone out the window, because I am unable to study electronics because of epilepsy, and other entrances to hardware engineering cost more then I can afford.
    The Electronics course I was going to get as a scholarship after I completed my functional skills maths, but last tuesday I found out I can not work in the electronics lab because of my epilepsy.

    I guess I am in a situation wear I will have to go with my second love, of playing piano.
    I taught myself how to play piano, so I will have to try and save for a few years and buy myself a piano.
    My entire family expect me to fail at functional skills maths and english so in the mean time I will continue with that and prove them wrong.

  • Nope, nope, NOPE.

    We should all stop paying for education because we all have an obligation and right to be educated. If it is, then why should we all still pay for it? The government should pay for it if it is a right. People who have no shelter, since we all have a right to have a house, are given almost free homes; almost because there are the taxes and the bills to pay. ANYWAY, yeah, if that happens there, why not in education? If we really need to pay, then it should only be the services like free meals and the security that we should pay for.

    Thank you.

  • No no no and no.

    Hell no. While there may be set backs to having free education, the possibilities would be great. If not free education then why not lower college tuition? It's freaking insane how expensive it is, and honestly a slap in the face. Because colleges are basically saying, if you don't have the money, oh well, your problem. What do we have college for? The rich? Probably. And all this bull crap about "well there's finacial help" uh yeah, that puts you in debt! You have to penny every penny back people just not up front. So what's the point in the financial help if I'll be paying for it the rest of my life! The only people that say something like that are the people that got in from mom and dad's money. Or schoolership. But the ones that have no choice but to pay out of their own pocket with out mom and dad are screwed. And this crap about how it shouldn't be free because then people wouldn't value it, uhhhh helloooooo obviously the people willing to go to college fall into debt and work their ass off understand the value of it. The people that don't, well that would be their problem.

  • No paying for education

    Basic opinion: I believe that people should not pay for education, because everyone has the right to a good education and some people can’t afford it. Education is important because it gives you the basic skills to get a job and to live life. Without education they would be trapped in a poverty cycle, which means when two people can’t afford their children’s education, the children won’t be able to get a proper job and then they won’t be able to afford their children’s education.

  • Self teaching is very possible today

    Today we have the internet and the internet is full of great resources that you can use to seal teach yourself. I have self taught myself on few subjects that made me more knowledge for class. People can now download PDF readers and put them on on tablets and read them. Today we have Khan Academy which is provided several thousands videos on math, science, social science and other areas. It has great reviews by people but bad reviews by professors and teachers saying it does not teach correctly. I learn lot of math and I see him doing calculus and it looks right to me. Professors and teachers are feeling they may lose because free education by Khan Academy and I'm sure over time more these online teaching videos will come out and colleges will have a battle.

  • It limits education to the rich

    Making people pay for an education means that less people can afford it, the less that can afford it the less people we have going to school, which means more uneducated people, more uneducated people means that there will be more people out there without a job, more people without jobs means more people on benefits and it ends up sapping more money than it brings in.
    Everyone should have the chance to be educated, if they aren't interested in education then ignorance is their choice, but everyone should have the opportunity, economic situation shouldn't come into it.
