This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!

Preach!

WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR PEOPLE TO REALIZE THIS?!

SO MANY OTHER COUNTRIES EITHER PAY FOR THEIR POPULATIONS’ EDUCATION OR JUST WRITE OFF THE BILL IF DOESN’T GET PAID FOR.

THE WAY THE AMERICAN EDUCATION SYSTEM WORKS IS BACKWARDS AND MANGLED.

"I think it is obscene for the government to make profit off of these kids"

I’m gonna go ahead and be a shithead here and say, isn’t that taxation? What’s the difference between this and the tax they shave off of your paycheques, the sales tax they shave off of every single purchase you make, the tax you file at the end of the year and so on. Not saying it’s bad or good or this or that, but u kno

'shink about it…

Additionally, college wouldn’t be so fucking expensive if it didnt become the new 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th grade. Not everyone needs to goto college, but the millennial generation have all been corralled into post-secondary education because of the aspirations of the baby boomers to see their children off to a higher standard of learning and education. That’s not a bad thing, but the result of which has made the demand for a slot in select universities/colleges to skyrocket and along with it, the price for the PRIVILEGE to attend certain institutions.  Massive student debt goes along with other millenial generation debt bubbles where people spend for things beyond their means like as it were for housing/loans almost a decade ago.

The effect for this in the workforce has been the dilution of the worth of a college degree and the appearance of the “at least 3-4 years of experience.” College education is so common now a days that it has rendered it’s worth to another otherwise useless addition to your resume. It no longer is the guarantee of employment as it were for previous generations. That’s what’s “fundamentally changed.”

Kids should go into trades. Or an affordable community college.

I’ll answer you.

The difference is between education loans, and taxation, is this:

Taxation on your goods and paycheck is the government saying “you’re making this much money, we need some of it.” Now unfortunately our taxes aren’t so great right now, but the basic idea is that since you HAVE money, the government is going to use some of it, but leave you enough that you can live. Their cut of your paycheck is THEIR paycheck for giving you a country to live in. it is an upkeep cost. it’s maintenance.

The education situation is almost the opposite. Colleges have become unreasonably expensive. their rate of inflation something like 5-10 times that of every other market. School is now so expensive that the ONLY way to attend is to take out a loan. Combined with the fact that most jobs now require it to have any chance of getting hired (because old people can’t retire anymore, they begin competing for the same entry jobs kids should be getting, who are you gonna hire. the fifty year old with job experience and a degree or the kid still in school?) this means that kids HAVE to go to college to get a shot at anything more than wage slavery. So now, kids have one option, going to the government and asking for money, which as bad as it is, could still work if the impossible rates of interest didn’t make it a damnation.

Basically, sending the next generation to college should be an investment. it is the act of planting a seed, to harvest a crop later. What should happen, is that the government should pay or help you with tuition. you go to college, learn and become a better human being, and in a decade you bring in a nice fat paycheck for the government to skim off of until you die. At the very least, the gov should be taking their cut from the schools, NOT the students. college and universities are making disgusting profits and none of that money is going back into the campus. 

Students are seeds and the government is a farmer. Logically they should do everything they can to tend the fields so that every season he’ll have a large crop to stay fed for the rest of his life.

instead, they’ve decided that they should simply get as many seeds as possible and eat them raw. That’s why taxes on the poor are huge and the rich pay nothing. because the government can reliably create a huge population of very poor people with no options. Instead of having a country full of successful well off people, each one giving them a big slice of a big paycheck for 40 years each, they opted to squeeze out as much money as possible from every kid as fast as possible, and as a result, we as a nation are ignorant and poor with no real chance at success.

THAT is why its obcene for the government to make a profit. because a government does not NEED a profit. The concept of profit should not APPLY to a government. A government’s sole purpose is to keep it’s nation running. Don’t you think it’s fucked up that “America” and “the government” are seen as different things? Government should not be making a profit because it should have no concept of money as a currency. Money is simply a way of getting things done at the governmental level. and what a government DOES is make the nation run. A government fucking up it’s nation and it’s population in order to make a profit, is like burning down your house to raise the temperature, or taking the wheels off your bike to cut down on weight. 

Also “affordable community college”

Stay in Canada, and stop shit talking Americans without doing any actual research. Our country is fucked up, but it’s obvious every time that you don’t actually understand WHAT our problems are or WHY they happened. It’s really obvious every time you do this that you’re treating the USA as if all the rules are the same as Canada’s and we just did things wrong. They’re not, our social, political and economic situations are completely different from yours, Every time you explain how shit needs to be fixed in America is like watching a farrier try put shoes on a pickup truck, or a mechanic change the wheels on a horse.
