Why College Should be Free

By Michelle Henderson

When people are more educated, they can solve problems better. This means that society can progress at a faster rate.

It improves society.

With education, people can better understand the history of their society and its current economic conditions. So, they may be more inclined to participate in politics and improve their country.

Also, when more people have access to a college education, the number of employable people for high-skilled jobs increases. This means that more people will join the workforce, which could help lessen the wealth gap between the upper, middle, and lower classes.

Most students graduate with a massive amount of debt. For example, in the U.S., the average student debt per person is $31,172.When students graduate with debt, they will likely continue to add to their debt with interest. Because of this, it can take many years before they manage to dig themselves out of debt that only seems to keep growing.On the other hand, if people were to graduate without debt, that could fast track their ability to earn, save, and spend. This helps to stimulate the economy. With increases in consumer spending, there is more demand.

It boosts the economy

More demand in spending also relates back to higher demand in the workforce or more opportunities for employmentThe fear of being in debt can cause students to avoid school entirely. But, if the debt wasn’t a reality, then the younger generation may feel more motivated to go to school in the first place.

-Since affordability is a major issue for so many people when it comes to attending college, the playing field has not always been equal. -A lot of the brightest minds in the world stem from low-income households, but that shouldn’t hold them back from continuing their education. If there was an equal opportunity to attend school, then everyone would have the chance to go to school. Affordable education is a major step towards equality.

It increases equality.
