Subsidies on college tuition

     The government should have subsidies on college tuition. This would cause for everyone that has lived in that state to get lower tuition. According to the Foundation for Economic Education we should not put subsidies on college tuition because it makes it more for people out of state (fee.org,Alex Tabarrok,2016). The students out of state should pay more as they have not contributed to the government in that state as the people in state have. Tuition should be subsidized for people in state and not people out of state because people in state contribute to that states government and the people out of state do not.

      The government should not have subsidies for college tuition. It would not help people who are out of state pay for college but the exact opposite. It would how ever help the people who are in state pay for college. According to Forbes the subsidies on college tuition for people in state would raise the price of tuition for people out of state (www.forbes.com, Tim Worstall, 2015). Therefore if you do subsidies it less people out of state would not go to college due to lack of funds. There should not be subsidies on in state college tuition because people out of state are negatively affected by it.

      Should the government have subsidies on college tuition for people in the state? In my opinion we should have it subsidized for people out of state and in state. This would make it so mostly everyone can afford to go to college because honestly I think that college tuition is too much and hard to Pay for. Therefore in the future we will have more educated people in our country. There would also be less poverty and crime as more people would more likely have a job and have the money to support them and their families. If we subsidized not only tuition for people in state but also for people out of state then there would be more successful people.

  1. In theory it sounds nice to have subsidized college, but in reality the idea is flawed. Not only does this force the taxpayer to pay for some random person's education, but it actually makes the student pay more for college. Since the offer is attractive, colleges crank their tuition rates up, making the student and tax payer play more. If we did not have subsidized college, schooling would be cheaper for the students and not force the taxpayer to pay for someone else's education.

  3. If we pay for college for everyone then anybody can go to college and fail and still get college paid for so the everyone gets a degree. If everyone had a degree the college education would not mean as much.
