The Rising Cost of Higher Education

Are the benefits worth the costs?

How is this a current issue?

We are all high school seniors who are going to be paying for our college education for years to come. Yes, some of us will get or have already gotten scholarships that provide money for our education, but in most cases we still have to pay large amounts for our chosen degrees.

Why Does College Cost So Much?

Concluding Thoughts

  • Providing a completely free educational experience for everyone is not a realistic option in the United States.

  • The costs are worth it if the student can reasonably afford it.

  • If more people had a degree in our country without being in so much debt, then the economy as a whole would benefit.
