College Tuition

College tuition is too much money.

Dear Mr. / Mrs.President,

The cost of college tuition is too expensive. People who do well in high school should be able to go to college for free. I’m not saying college would be a home for the homeless, I’m saying that college being free would lead to more college graduates. These people wouldn’t be homeless, but instead have a stable place to live. 564,708 people are currently homeless. These numbers could drop dramatically if college tuition was free.

College tuition going down would be beneficial because it would take many people off the streets. I think that people getting off the streets would be beneficial because there would be less deaths from exposure to the elements. College tuition going down would be beneficial to people in debt because they would no longer be in debt;  they could have went to free college. Not being in debt is a good thing. This is a good thing because if you’re not in debt, you can buy the essential things like food and your own house

Education is not just knowing stuff like math and science; it’s a better chance of getting money. I say this because it gives you a place in society, a chance to get a job and be someone in this world. Education is very important to people.

People who say that free college could be bad argue that when everyone has a college degree that no one will do jobs that don’t require a college degree. I think that there would be a lot of people who did these jobs because there wouldn’t be enough jobs that require a college loan.

People who I know are currently in college debt and If they were not, they would be making a lot more money. My brother currently owes about $32,000; he went for six years to Syracuse University. Many Americans who go to college owe much more than this. College debt can cost as much as $50,000 or as little as $1,000 but no matter how much the cost, you have to pay interest.  As time goes on, your debt goes up.

College tuition going down would be a good for everyone. I say this because If college tuition goes down, then there would be many people who were not in debt anymore.

Thank you,
