Free Community College!
Colleges are increasing their tuition costs at about 5% each year. With the rise of tuition costs, it discourages students to get into a four year because of how much debt they will go into after graduating. High tuition costs also affects how the student works in school. Most students work more than one job just to help pay for their classes. But because of work, students won't be able to really focus on being a full-time student, leading to taking fewer classes and slowing their graduation rate.
We all want to get a good education. We all want ACCESS to a good education. But with colleges increasing tuition costs, it makes it harder for students to earn their degree.
Community College should be free in order to give students a better chance of getting into a four year university. Free community college will allow students to focus on their studies without having to worry at all about making their tuition payments or financial aid, setting them up for academic success for the future.
