College Prices Too High

Colleges are charging too much for students to attend. It is to high for a lot of students and loans lead to debt.

Dear Mr. or Mrs. President

Colleges are charging to much to go to there school and a lot of people can't afford it or if they use a loan they are in debt for a long time. I am one of the many people who will not be able to afford to go to college. Almost every student agrees that college is expensive and that prices should be lowered so more students can go and make a better future for themselves. If you lower the prices our country could have a brighter future with more educated kids. All we need to do is lower the prices and it could happen.

I'm not saying to lower them so much that it's almost free I just mean enough so that people can afford it or pay off their loan quicker and not take half their life to pay it. We could get more people in school and off the streets and help them at the same time. More better paying jobs will be filled and it could let people get to their full potential.

We should be able to go to school without having to worry about having to pay back tons of money after we graduate. According to the College Board the average cost for colleges will be $9,410 for state residents. That's not even counting for private colleges which is $32,405 and $23,893 for out-of-state residents attending public universities. These are only the average prices there are some higher and lower, but either way these are still way too high to pay. We need to lower the prices for future generations.

Our students no, our kids of this country deserve to go to college and get a good job. As a country we can not sit around and watch our future generations over pay to go to school. It is their right to be able to go to school and get a good career and it be affordable. All these kids have different things they could change for the world if they just had the chance to get a better education. I hope that you understand this from not only from my view but all students views.

We as the students would appreciate it if you look at this and put yourself in our shoes. You could be the president that changed the future of employed people that took college. There might not be a short on doctors or any other profession ever again. This could be a change this country needs for the generations to come.

If we don't charge a lot we may not be be able to pay expenses for the school. This could be one of the problems if we do this, but we can find other ways to get cash. We could have There will not be enough room for all the students. We can make the eligibility different so the ones who actually deserve college can have it.

In conclusion we can change it, but it may come with obstacles. We can handle these obstacles though. All you need to do is support this and help make the change that is needed. This change is needed for us and this country.
