a country with free or low education still wouldnt have everyone going to college. also, just because everyone has the right to go to college doesnt mean everyone should. i dont want any idiots at the university id be going to

But a free or low price to post-secondary education would allow for the option to consider attending University to intelligent people who would not be able to afford it otherwise. Plus, there would still be an admission process to attend the aforementioned Universities: People couldn't just walk up to the college and say "I want to attend class today," they would still need to apply, just as we practice now.   
   
TLDR People who would want to go could afford, and people who shouldn't would still get turned away.

We already have these things for smart people who can't afford college. They're called scholarships and grants.

A country with no low level laborers is impossible. So, most of your whip-crack smart kids will be filling low level jobs, and the time necessary for college won't be worth it, they won't go. basic economics

What quiescat said, and also:


Would you rather your son drop out of college to take part in a booming field sans degree, or would you rather not have the choice of either?

It's so weird that a punk singer is so wise! I kind of differ on this topic because not everyone can be qualified for management level jobs, it's not sustainable. But his views on war, health and pretty much everything else are pretty eye opening. Go henry rollins, go black flag.

If you mean "let's make college cheap", then I'm all for it.

If you mean "let's tax people and force them to pay for it", then no.
User avatar #9 to #8 - reginleif (05/15/2013) [-]
A good idea people simply don't want to pay for it.

And how would one make college "cheap" without outside market planning? The way I see it, one would have to either tax the entire country, or put in price controls.

Price controls take away revenue from the college owners/board forcibly like any tax.

You COULD make it cheap, and limit the amount of people that go to a tiny pop. size but even then you would go against OP's statement and woud end up with a nation of a tiny elite instead of a well educated one.

I think it we really want it to get cheaper, the best way is to give an incentive to people to make it cheaper, which means privatization. Education is so deeply subsidized and controlled, subjecting it to the free market and giving a bigger incentive to more entrepreneurs and investors would raise quality and cut costs.

Good luck finding professors and DJ 4DM1Nistrators willing to work for free. Enough to teach all the people who want to go to college for free, which is everyone.

Yeah, cheap college has worked out great so far hasn't it. 'Cause that's what you've got, with government grants and loans... everyone and their pet monkey going to college. And nothing but barely-trained monkeys coming out the other end. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR...
#12 to #3 - John Cena (05/15/2013) [-]
Loans don't equal cheap education. You still need to pay that **** off. Also most people don't qualify for grants. So your point about education being cheap is invalid. Hell I would go to school if I could afford it. But I can't, I'm one of the people stuck at a minium wage job with no way out.
