College tuition is too high

I thought that an important issue is that college cost is too high for students and families.

Dear Future President,

I think that lots of things in this world have to change, but one of the most important thing for kids and adults is education.It is important to have a good education if you want to grow up and have a good career or a good job.

Your Own said that, “with a college degree you can get a better job than a high school diploma.”And that is with my claim because you will have a better paying job.If colleges gave more financial aid to the students they would be able to afford a car a house and won't need a full time job so they can't go to school.Many students in high school ready to graduate are scared they might not be able to afford the cost of college.Students are always so stressed out because they have to work to get money to pay bills and if they have a family to take care of.

According to Ohio State University, “you’ll make more money over your lifetime if you have a college diploma than those who don’t.”Making money is important to any adult to support them nothing is dirt cheap or for free in this world.With a lower cost on college more students will be able to support themselves financially. Also with college tuition being too high it is hard to find that kind of money each year.And finding a good paying job is hard if you are a teen still. So sometimes they need more than one job.

My College Guide says that,“32% of students reported neglecting their studies at least some of the times because of money they owed.” If the cost of college went down you would not have to worry about skipping classes for jobs to pay for school and other necessities in life.Education is really important and skipping classes will not improve your career choice if you are not in school learning.

College tuition is too high and unaffordable for students and families.Our presidents say it is important to stay in school,But making the price high is not going to keep students in school.
