College, College, College
As a senior in high school, college is very important to me and many of my classmates. We seemingly feel as if college is controlling our lives because when we look at the statistics, it really is. Since the economy is so tough right now, it's hard to find a job especially without a college degree. However, college can be a troublesome time for families who cannot afford pricey colleges. Recently, Obama has decided to introduce a plan that helps make college more affordable to students. Now, after discussing equality in class this past week, is it fair that college will become more affordable to other students? After all, America is all about freedom and competition. Why should others have the ability to competitively compete for limited spots in colleges now that they have more funds to do so? There is two ways to look at this. One, coming from the side that supports the funding and then the opposing side that has the ability and means to afford the college without the additional help. What do you believe is fair?
