Tuition-Free College

Tuition-Free College

Did you know that it costs students $25, 362 in tuition fees to attend a four-year course in the United States on average? The question of making college education free has always been an issue of discussion. It is a question with a complicated and unclear answer. Particularly during the electioneering period, the debate about student debt and the affordability of college education has always taken the center stage. This is particularly because presidential candidates like to build their manifestos on issues of the cost of higher education. With the cost of completing a degree rising by the day, it places students, predominantly; those hailing from financially challenged backgrounds at a disadvantage. Education is an important determinant of a person’s future and it helps impact society positively and as such, college education should be made free. As taxes continue going up, tuition-free education would be beneficial to everyone as it reduces the burden of students to repay loans, it accords students from low-income backgrounds an opportunity to study, and also grants them an opportunity to pursue a major of their choice.
