To answer the question of should college of education be free or not, we have to consider its impact on the country as a whole. Democracies and republics demand an educated populace for full political participation.
When people vote on issues and representatives, a college education can provide them with historical context, understanding of our; system and understanding of underlying social and economic issues.
College also often exposes people to ideas and people of different backgrounds that are beyond their backyard. This in itself is a strong argument for why college should be free.
Our Economy Now Requires a Better Educated Workforce so should college of Education be free
The world has changed remarkably since the 1940s and 1950s. Many more jobs today are knowledge-based or require advanced technical skills than in the past, to the extent that there are sometimes not enough qualified people to fill the positions. College education has become much more necessary than in the past to fill today’s roles.
A better educated workforce would be a boon to American economic growth and at the same time increase tax revenues. In addition, if more people can get more good jobs, it would reduce other forms of public assistance.
We are Wasting Some of Our Best Resources
High school students with the best grades, particularly when they come from low-income households, are not necessarily the ones who go to the best schools.
Even though some might have been the most successful students in high school, they often see little choice but to go to lower-rated, more affordable colleges. That’s if they are able to go to college at all. We are; wasting America’s brain power, brains that could be contributing to medical breakthroughs, economic advances, and leadership in all fields.
