If an American college student is able to graduate with less than $10,000 in student loan debt, they are considered lucky (the average is $37,000). However, students from other countries that have tuition free college have that luxury; most of their loans come from living expenses and books. Without the weight of student loan debt, more college graduates might buy houses rather than renting apartments. They might buy cars, spend more on healthy food, travel more: In essence, they could contribute more to the economy & by negating the large bill of a college education, we could see an increase in the amount of students able to attend college. This then creates a more well-educated workforce and a population that has better critical thinking.

1. The money has to come from somewhere, more taxes for the upper-middle and upper class.

2. Younger generations won't know how to handle finances.

3. Devalues a college degree. Students may not go to class because they are getting their money's worth, it's free.

4. TOO MANY people would go to college. Again taxes will go up for upper classes.

5. With more people choosing to attend public colleges because of their tuition-free status, many schools might have to create wait lists or expand the ones they already have. State budgets could become strained, which might lead to cuts and decreased access to the programs that students want to take.

6. Public colleges and universities might become less worried about wasteful spending since they won't have to compete with other schools on cost. And that could strain public budgets even further.

Your government does not want smart citizens, the dumb are much easier to govern. At one time not that long ago America reigned supreme as a leading model for the rest of the world providing the best quality free public K-12 education system on the planet. Now you are to dumb to know that you're dumb. So what happen to your education system?
