Elizabeth Warren’s plan to end student debt is glorious. We can make it a reality
The student debt issue is one that I notice frequently, as it is something that I am directly involved in, as a new college student. The cost of higher education has skyrocketed, making it inaccessible for many. Too many times, I have heard stories from friends who must forego their dream school, due to financial issues. College is something that should be prioritized, as it allows for the education and growth of this generation, the ones who will soon be responsible for fixing the many problems we face today. This is not possible unless the government aids in giving these students equal opportunities to succeed. Through countless civics classes, I have learned about the education system of other countries, and how higher education is virtually free. The cost of college in America is ridiculous, yet continues to climb. I believe that no student should be denied the opportunity to learn. We are blessed to live in a country where we have access to education, so why are we making it so hard to obtain. Too many times, I have seen millenials and members of my generation be called lazy for their inability to fund their education, but when I hear that my dad payed less that $10,000 a year for college, it is hard to feel like all the blame is on us. I believe that We must put in the effort for Warren’s plan to become a reality, as it can drastically change the outcome of our future.
