Dear Future President,
As a junior in high school, I’m becoming increasingly concerned with the price of going to college. Because the amount of time I have to decide where I want to attend school is getting shorter and shorter, the topic of tuition is becoming a bigger problem for me and my family by the minute. I’ve always been interested in going to college and getting a higher education, and my parents have been pushing me towards this goal since I started school. Like many students across the country, I want to build the best life for myself, and the gateway to that is college. Unfortunately, there are a lot of students who won’t be able to live out this dream because of the cost. Families with a lower income often struggle to send their children to college, and I believe this is a huge problem. Most jobs in America require some kind of degree, which can become a problem if students don’t have the necessary resources to attain one. College should be made affordable to everyone, because everyone deserves a chance to be successful in whatever profession they wish to pursue.
Going to college is a privilege, but should not be made so expensive that it limits students.
