How the economy screwed up our education

EDITOR:

Since the recession, student tuition has been climbing to an ultimate high. College has become a huge investment in a young person’s life but if students and their family cannot afford a higher education how can we expect America to move forward?

Young people are the future and if they are not educated they can not fix the problems that the past generations have left them. For students who are unable to afford college or universities, they choose a different route of attending junior colleges — which is ultimately flooding the schools. Also for the students who have invested in such a high-dollar education, once graduated they cannot get a job and they have to settle for something less desired of them. These students are then left with an enormous loan that they will most likely be paying for the next 20 years of their life.

Overall, a change is dramatically needed for the young people of America.
