Giving people free education devalues the college degree. Not everyone should earn a degree, only those who are a.) academically eligible and b.) willing to financially invest in their education and future career should be taken as serious applicants. We need people who to be mechanics and construction works more than we need doctors. Some people go to college because it's seen as just "the next step". They don't have a clear path or any desire for higher education. These people should consider their education and maybe pursue a trade instead.
