People think that the government should use the money that the taxpayers pay because it is for kids to get a higher education. “My experience as a higher education researcher tells me that the way this question is answered depends on who you think benefits. If you think individuals capture most of the benefits of higher education, then it is reasonable to ask individuals to pay the costs. On the other hand, if you think society shares in the benefits of college, then you might favor public support for higher education.” (higheredjobs.com). If kids are in college they will receive a better education which will get them a better job and have them receiving more money to hopefully put back into medicare and such. So it all balances out.
On the other hand people think that the colleges should not be paid for by taxpayers because they feel as if why should they pay for kids to go and party. “Colleges and universities shouldn’t be responsible for the state of the job market or for fledgling students who spend more time partying than studying, but they should be held accountable for promises they make and be made to pay up if fraud is proven. However, the Department of Education’s proposal is clearly not the right way to go about this.” (Times.com). When students go to college they often have the usual college life and party all the time. So it makes sense why these people would not want to pay for kids to go to college to party and such.
I feel as if taxpayers should have to pay for college. Al though college students do party, they also leave with a higher education and with a better education comes more money. Therefore the people can pay more taxes when they grow up and it will go back to the older people through medicare and such.
