A possible argument for why the government should subsidize college is because the amount of students going to college is increasing. Since a lot of the money that the government gives to universities goes to help those who are poor, the government needs to help those who are just truing to go to school (Freedman forbes.com 2013). I agree with this because tuition is expensive and even though the government gives universities money, they then spend the majority of the money on those who are poor rather than on any student who is attending the university.
Others disagree with the idea of subsidizing college. Some arguments for why college should not be paid for by the government are; since college education has such a high value, why would it be given away for free? Also, many people will argue that college is an option. No one is required to go to college (Luebke nccicitas.org 2016). I agree with these statements because if college tuition were given to everyone, those who are not suited for college would take advantage of the resource. Also since it is not illegal to not go to college the government should not have to pay for people to go to school.
Personally I do not think the government should have to pay for peoples college tuition. Since college is a choice and not required by law I do not see why it should be the government's responsibility to pay for it. Also since not every person is cut out for college, those who are not will take advantage of getting the education for free which will not benefit anyone and will actually just take away from those who are serious about their education.
