Not worth the money

Receiving a higher education is becoming to costly.

Dear Next President,

This place is going downhill fast. The most troubling issue we are dealing with is college tuition, this price is rising and rapidly. The average college tuition for a year institution was $32,405 in a private college and 23,893 for out of state public schools. This makes it so not every American can afford a college tuition. This puts those at a disadvantage for good jobs and future opportunities for promotions or raises. If it gets much higher basically nobody is going to have a college education even with the financial aids the college gives off. This is a very troubling issue because we need a high percentage of educated people. Right now even only 40 percent of America’s workers hold a college degree.
