Why college tuition should be reduced
College tuition is something that most college student mind. Over the years, the cost of college is becoming increasingly outrageous leaving most of the students in debt for years on end. With that being said most people can’t even afford college, which is something that shouldn’t be common. For those who can’t afford it, should be able to. I think its important that everyone should be able to get a college education at a reasonable price.
With the amount of money college students are paying you would think their education is would be catering to their expectations and be able to find their career job after graduating. In my opinion, colleges are way more interested in students getting into their school then they are in giving a top quality education. Most schools are funding in getting pools, rock climbing walls (Alfred State College), spas and much more. Although most of those things sound fun and wonderful, the main point is that these kids came to study and not play games all day. When most of the students are graduating and not finding jobs with tons of debt, wouldn’t you think that these students should spend their money on receiving a quality education that actually focuses on things that they will face in the real world. So with that being said maybe those high school seniors should consider going to a school that is more technical which focuses on certain skills which can also be a lot cheaper then going to a top university.
Scholarships is one way that can help college students but at the same time it doesn’t necessarily help the individual 100%. Most of the time it focuses on minorities, financial aid students and athletes which not everyone is. One thing about a student getting a scholarship for athletics, the amount of money received is really just to play sports at the school which became ridiculous. The amount of money for scholarships went directly into the school could possibly decrease the price of the tuition all together. It is often apparent that those student athletes that are held at high Pedestal receive more even though they might not have the best grades and receive special treatment in comparison to a student with great grades but isn’t an athlete. In my opinion I don’t think that’s fair at all. It demonizes those with high grades and gives the wrong ideas to those student athletes.
Community college is an option but most of the time is not socially acceptable because all high school seniors want to get away to get that experience and most of the time when do you ever hear a high school senior say they are interested in going to a community college. Which make students look at com. College as less of an option as a university is. Also when applying for a job the university may look like a better look for the person who is applying.
Another thing to point out is that those who have a college degree make around forty-thousand...
