  Estephanie Soto MWF 11:30 April 28 th , 2017 College Funding The educational system is very important to today’s society and the future of our society as well. One of the major controversial issues in our countries educational system is if college should be free to students wanting a higher education all over the states. Many agree and disagree on if the state and government should be more involved in helping fully fund these students all over the nation for higher education or if they should fund their own education. Which do you agree with? College is a rite of passage that is important and beneficial to the transition from high school to adulthood. It provides students to learn independence, meet new people, study and learn about their interests, and provides students to experience new environments. There are many people today that want to attend college and experience all these things, but don’t because of financial reasons. The state and federal government can help students finically by providing free college to public two-and-four year colleges and private colleges as well. With the help from the state and federal government more students would be able to attend the school of their choice without worrying about how they would pay for it. “Higher  education prices have risen far faster than other prices in the economy: across all institutions, undergraduate tuition, fees, and living expenses more than doubled in inflammation-adjusted dollars (Freedman, Josh).” With the state and government’s financial help in funding students fully for higher education with raise the number of students who attend college. The schools can overall pay a big lump sum and cover the expenses all in one. We don’t have to wait around  Estephanie Soto MWF 11:30 April 28 th , 2017 for students to get loans or find a way to pay what they owe. “It also doesn’t take enrollment increases into account, which means the results don’t reflect how much money states spend on each student (Weller, Ellen).” Having the state and federal government system fully fund h igher education will help today’s society and the futures as well in a tremendous way. Financial aid today isn’t much but it is helpful for some students and doesn’t affect other students at all. To receive financial aid from the federal and state government, students must meet certain requirements based on parent or guardian annual income, marital status, and how many children in the immediate family. “The federal government mainly provides financial assistance to individual students and specific research projects, while state funds primarily pay for the general operations of public institutions (Federal and State Funding of Higher Education).” Sadly, a majority of students are declined financial aid due to the fact that they barely fall short of the requirements needed to receive the aid needed to be able to attend college. The state and federal government could help these students be able to receive more aid by adjusting the requirements to help the lower and middle class students to be able to attend college. “College is expensive, and the government’s  attempts to help make college more affordable for students has likely driven up prices even more. But there is a solution: Rather than remove itself from higher education, as many libertarian economists have suggested, we actually need  –  and  –  want the government to play a larger role and more prominent role (Freedman, Josh).” Having more students receive more aid for higher education will allow more people receive a college degree. “A large and growing share of future jobs will  Estephanie Soto MWF 11:30 April 28 th , 2017 require college-educated workers. Sufficient public investment in higher education to keep quality high and tuition affordable, and to provide financial aid to students who need it most, would help states develop the skilled and diverse workforce they need to compete for these  jobs ( Mitchell, Michael, Michael Leachman, and Kathleen Masterson).” This will help our society because there will be more people that have a degree tha t will help advance our society’s  needs and development. Which do you agree with? Should the state and government fully fun college for anyone that wants to receive a higher education, or should the government only help fund to an extent but help with a big portion of the funding’ s? This is an issue that is still being discussed by the state and government. Until it is finally decided on either free or more aid they do the best they can on providing what higher education students need.  Estephanie Soto MWF 11:30 April 28 th , 2017 Works Cited Federal and State Funding of Higher Education.  A Changing Landscape .
