Whether your part of the lower class or the upper class, there are scholarships. What tends to be unfair is that every state has a favor in one of these two choices; for example some states favor more merit based scholarships and some states prefer need based scholarships. With these preferences students aren’t able to get the financial aid of their choice. By examining both of these options, need based scholarships provide a fair unbiased look at the student’s true academic potential. This is significant because without having a more accurate method determining which category a student falls under, some students will not get the financial aid they need for college therefore be forced to not attend a secondary schooling.
The promise of a well paying job is not guaranteed meaning that for some students it would be better to engage in vocational areas. In any case, colleges try to get as much money as possible from students meaning that it is becoming increasingly costly to study in colleges, and government subsidies simply increases the quest for more university education.

Time spent working, offers useful insights on skills in demand in specific industry, and this is beneficial to people who are likely to drop out of school with no experience or skill. Essentially, college education is necessary, but not all people should attain a bachelor’s degree as there are alternative routes through which to gain experience in tune with market demands.
Higher education is more valuable that people prioritize it to be. It is unfair to have kids debase themselves all for not being financially strong. There are kids out there that are academically acceptable to colleges but are not financially acceptable for them. So then you have colleges emphasizing financial aid but what good does a small amount of assistance do for a whole lot of tuition? When will financial aid be more of a benefit for low income students rather than just a chump of
The free community college idea sounds appealing, but more time and government money should be spent on making university tuitions lower because the community colleges are already less expensive and give support to those who are not financially stable. Students who they themselves attend community college pondered on the idea of their tuition being free; one particular student Felipe Bezerra, from the article “As He Promotes It, Some Question Obama’s Free Community College Idea,” stated that the tuition of community colleges isn’t worth being free, financially needy students get the money they need and the other students barely even have to pay $2,000 every year. Students like Bezerra are more concerned about their education following community college, he knows he won’t be able to pay for tuition in university and would rather “all this
There are scholarships, grants, and financial aid available to students but that doesn’t help everyone. Students that perform well in high school with grades, attendance, and keep a good GPA seem to get all the money they can for college. From personal experience, I was a good student in high school, had a 3.6 GPA, all A’s and B’s, and perfect attendance throughout all four years of high school. I applied for many scholarships my senior year and received a substantial amount. Along with that, I also applied for financial aid, which helped me out, but still didn’t cover all of the college tuition I had.
Although these students participate and spend much of their time playing, they are no more special then the average student who attends the school. Putting the money back into the school itself allows everyone a better education, rather then just a few students, some spending money.

One should look at the future of our educational system. Even though for-profit schools have high tuition and are there to make money, the truth is for-profits are offering students a better learning experience as well as a faster path to their future goals. Making the decision to further one’s education can be a difficult one, especially when he or she has been out of school for many years. For-profit schools have become a convenient way to return to the classroom; however, one must take a long look at the price per course compared to non-profit schools. Knowing for-profit schools are there to make money and cost more, students are still willing to pay the high price.
These financial aid programs helped many people save money, but the fact of the matter is that this money could have been spent to make sure that every single person in the United States had a free college tuition, if they were to want one. The reason as to why some people do not have any form of college education has a lot to do with the expense. Most people are told from a young age that if you want a good job that you must first have a good college education. The problem is that as of right now with a good college education comes high student loans and debt. John Weiner, author of “Aiming Higher: Make College Tuition free”, brings to our attention an example of this problem provided by The University of California, “In
Free College Tuition Why don’t all colleges make free tuition option for low income students? Some colleges are expensive, but they have a free tuition option. Some people say that if colleges are free, colleges will end up bankrupt. Others say that is not true because they earn money from different directions, such as from the state government, federal government, nonprofit organizations and other governmental and non-governmental institutions. A well-educated people can change the world.
Some students have scholarships, and without good grades, they loose their scholarships. As long as raising tuition helps the students, it’s a good idea. Otherwise, they should think about leaving the tuition alone or putting some of that extra money into some new or existing programs. This way, the students know where their money is going; doing this will help students be ok with the idea of tuition increases. If the students are fine with the idea, then it won’t be such a hardship retaining more students and keeping the existing students, because the students are getting something for their money, not just a higher education, but programs and help.
