Lower Education Cost
By: Skylar and Ashley
How to solve this problem?
Split cost with someone in the class
Lower prices of college education or make some colleges free.
Life with and without debt
Why College Should be Free
The class of 2014 graduated with an average student loan debt of $33,000
Cost of living is expensive and students take out loans to pay for housing and food which is where they get their student loan debt if college is free.
Over 40 countries around the world offer free post-secondary education, including: Argentina, Denmark, Greece, Kenya, Morocco, Egypt, Uruguay, Scotland and Turkey.
When college is free students pay more attention on course work and not over work themselves with work and getting good grades
Students will do more of their homework because they will have the supplies
Call to Action
Cost of making college free is $62.6 billion
Cost of having tuition is $69 billion
Have high schools emphasize dual enrollment.
