Why college tuition should be lowered or free?
Tuition should be lowered because it’s expensive and more people could afford college. Therefore our homeless population would decrease.
Tuition should be lowered because graduates tend to get a good job, and a higher paying job, but if you can’t pay for college how are you supposed to go to college? College grads (with a bachelor’s degree) earn $51,206. High school graduates earn $27,915.
Students would focus more on school than on trying to figure out how to pay for each semester. According to Ohio State University, 70% of nearly 19,000 students surveyed said they’re stressed about their finances. Kids stress about their finances, then studying for a test. Which means they will most likely not graduate on time.
People who graduate with student loan debts cannot own a house or anything. The average student loan payment for every month is $351 for ages 20-30. That’s about as much as rent some places. Kids worry how they’re going to make that, so they’re sleeping on friends' couches because they have to pay that, instead of finding somewhere to live.
We should lower college tuition because graduates tend to get a better job and a higher paying job. Students would focus more on school than on figuring out how to pay for school. They wouldn’t have as much student loan debts. I would love to go to college, but I will never be able to get into college unless I get a scholarship, or some miracle happens and my mother wins the lottery. That’s why I believe college tuition should be lowered.
