Dear Mr. or Mrs. President,
To start off, I personally believe that the number one reason for success relies on a country’s economic stability. Although it seems nearly impossible to cure our crippling debt at this point, we can try to resolve it by focusing our nation’s attention on college. For example, we can simply eliminate the treacherous tuition costs that students are paying to help aid our nation’s insurmountable debt. According to statistics, by doing this we will gain the ability to allow more low-income citizens to attend a college without having to worry financially, and it benefits our country in various ways. It allows us to tax the upper class citizens more, resulting in less people struggling to keep up with their debts and the constant interest building up on them. Thousands of sources, including “Time Magazine”, have argued that college should not profit Wall Street and the federal government, mainly because millions of students are struggling to pursue their futures due to the obstacle of tuition costs. By establishing a tuition free system in public colleges, suffering college students would no longer be affected by the unreasonable debts, and the federal government would be more able to steadily pay them off.
Additionally, it is predicted that our national debt and average tuition costs will drastically rise within the next 10 years, possibly making it almost two times harder for students to attend and pay for college. The benefits and advantages of attending college play a major role in a person’s life, and unfortunately thousands of Americans continue to financially suffer due to the high tuition costs that seem to make college only available to the more fortunate and privileged citizens. News-quality.com introduced a shocking statistic stating that it takes the average college student ten years to pay off their entire tuition costs, when they should be receiving this necessary benefit for free or at least for a decreased cost. College tuition is so high that many families struggle to buy necessities every month, and some family members work two jobs just to help pay for college debts. Personally, I believe that a family’s income should not determine their education, and many high-paying jobs and other opportunities in the United States require some sort of college education. Another surprising statistic to consider claims that fifty percent of all graduates with a bachelor’s degree don’t find a stable job for at least a year after graduation, forcing their debt to rapidly increase since they don’t have a steady income to help pay it off. My solution is that we should higher taxes, especially on the upper-class citizens, and college students who do poor and give no effort in college should be forced to personally pay off the costs of their education.
On the other hand, many Americans argue that the federal government is unable to pay for the tuition costs on its own, however, multiple sources predicted that free tuition would decrease our annual debt by almost half, and it would prevent the costs of college from rapidly increasing within the next few decades. Consequently, others say that the benefits of a college education outweigh the tuition costs, but they fail to recognize that thousands of citizens are being denied the opportunity to get an advanced education due to their family’s income and wealth. These methods have been constantly proven to be successful by dozens of other countries, and a majority of the countries with the best economic and financial stability already implemented some of these tuition methods. In conclusion, I hope that you will take into consideration the idea of eliminating or reducing college tuition costs in the United States, and that you will agree with the arguments I have given. The idea that college should be equally affordable and accessible to all citizens is the most reasonable solution to help decrease our nation’s rapidly growing one trillion dollar debt. In conclusion, as the leader of our nation, you should be most concerned about the students of our future, and you need to focus on making education easily available to our upcoming generation looking to further their knowledge in college, despite their family's financial status.
