A reason government subsidies towards college is that subsidies actually raise the price of tuition. "The report’s findings show that of all three programs the Federal Direct Subsidized Loans generated a 65 cent-on-the-dollar increase on college tuition," (Ethan Stoetzer, usatoday.com, 8/20/15) The article talks about how when the government raised subsidies on college tuition it actually raised the average price of tuition for students. So it's actually doing the opposite of what people want and it's costing the tax payers more money. The government also should not be responsible for paying students tuition on higher education.
I think that the government shouldn't give subsidies on college tuition. They already provide education from kindergarten through grade 12 so higher education should be left to students to pay for. And when the government does give subsidies it just raises the price of tuition so it hurts all college students. Students would also generally not try as hard in school because it's mostly not their money that they are spending so it means less to them.
