Should individuals, such as students and their parents, be on their own in paying for higher education, or should the government assume some or all of this responsibility?
Ah, the government. That entity with no connection to the taxpaying citizens of the USA.
Who should pay for our education system K through 12? Government of course. Everyone knows a basic education is free. But how come 50% of my $12,500 property tax bill goes to funding our local schools?
No matter how you slice it, it’s the citizens who are responsible to pay for everything, everything. Thanks to the despicable tactics of our politicians much of that responsibility gets past on to the next generation.
Some people want government to forgive student loans. Exactly who would be using whose money to forgive freely and knowingly incurred loans intended to improve the individuals economic status?
The national average starting salary for a college graduate is $50,000 in 2021. But many degree areas are much higher.
The weekly median earnings for full-time wage or salary workers in the United States in the second quarter of 2021 amounted to $990. It translates to a yearly income of approximately $51,480.
Why should the average American worker – and retirees – fund loan forgiveness for the more fortunate with significantly higher earnings potential?
There is no student loan crisis, the crisis is illogical thinking.
