Free higher education

I want to focus on free higher education.

 Dear President,

   I am from Kansas City, Missouri. For the last month my class has been preparing on writing letters to the president.

     A lot of families cannot afford college because it's expensive. Some students do not have the same right to be whatever they want to be or some students do not even try in school because they know they cannot afford college. We can make college free. If we make college free every student will be “endowed to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Students who don't have the money will have the same right as the students who do have the money to pay for it. College is too expensive and college should be free because students will have a lot of loan debts then students will have to be working to pay their college and that may distract them from school. Or some students maybe do not want to apply for a scholarship because they think they will not get it because it's like a competition. We do not have the right…things. The right supplies to get a scholarship.Yet we say that the USA provides free education to all. With this thinking, college should be free because it is education. Education is something every student should have without having to pay for it. Education is a necessity. My friend Aisha's family did not have enough money to pay for Aisha's college. Aisha was willing to start working and her mom wanted to help her so she started working overtime to pay for her college. She would always get very discouraged in school because of work she would be very tired all the time and she would not get much time to sleep she had some struggles and had to work hard to graduate from college. Although it was hard she still graduated from college. Basically what I am saying is that students have to work hard to pay for their college and loan debts because it is too expensive should not happen it should be free because college is a necessity. They do have to work for everything because college is a necessity but college is something that should be free for students.

     Education is not something anyone can get. If education was free people would be able to fulfill their dreams. Education is a necessity. According to an info-graphic found on more than ⅓ of people say college is not worth the cost. Many people think higher education is not for them because of the cost of college it is very expensive. But when it comes to their children they want their kids to go to college. In an article "U.S. News Data: College Costs, Financial Aid" Farran Powell states that in a public in-state college in 2014-2015 the fees and tuition are about $8,709, In a public out of state college is around $19,867 and in a private college it is about $31,381. College fees and tuition's have increased since then.Tuition rates are increasing everywhere. In some states tuition rates are higher than in other states. In other words what this is saying is that college rates have increased during the past years and are going to keep increasing to the point where college will no longer be affordable for anyone.

     Thank you for taking your time on reading this letter. As you can see I am very passionate about free education. I know that education is an important thing in your presidential campaign. I hope you think education should be free and can do something about this. I also hope you take my letter into consideration.
