Education should be low cost to free for those willing to keep their grades up. We are in a global economy; some other countries are getting a better education than people in the US; colleges have raised there tuition rates so much over the past several years that a student can no longer work their way through college. Why do we want to sabotage US citizens wanting an education? Not only can students increase their quality of life but it increases the quality of life for all US citizens. I'd rather see my tax dollars go to help people go to college than to invade another country.
