It is to our advantage to educate our population so we can compete with other countries that have already surpassed us on education. The increase in the cost for college over the past several years had caused people who aren’t well off financially to require loans to go to college. And those loans are accompanied by high interest rates. It’s nearly like we are trying to dumb down the citizens of our country. And, if you watch what is happening now, I think it’s working. I’d like to see more states fund college by lottery or otherwise. But, at the very least college loans interest rates should be eliminated.
