Why College Should Be Free – Summer Intern Current Events Reflection 2
A college education has become a necessity in today’s society. Students throughout the country are concentrating on their academics and are endeavoring to receive perfect grades in order to receive a good enough scholarship to attend college. Financing each student’s education has become difficult in today’s economy. College can seem like a financial burden to many people in America. Thus, many students, teachers, and people wonder if free college tuition should be granted. Tuition should be provided and funded by the U.S. government because it will help students focus more on their future and help innovate the world into something much better.
Free college tuition should be given to students because it will assist students to concentrate on their studies. Most college students usually have part-time jobs and are full-time students. They have to rely on their job, as much as their academics, to be able to pay for all necessary books and classes that they are required to take. These jobs take time away from the student’s study time. If free college tuition was given, students would have more time to educate themselves, plus be well rested instead of being tired from time consuming jobs. Their main focus wouldn’t have to be about money or time at all. They would be prepared for their classes and not worry about their own financial situation or other issues regarding their personal education.
There are students from underprivileged families that work hard in school and deserve the opportunity for a college education. Some students who get exceptional grades in school don’t have enough money to continue their education. A lack of money should not stop a student from completing their education, but mostly their dream to become whatever they want to be. In addition, if free college tuition was given, a number of students would be motivated to work harder and try in school to get accepted into colleges. There would be a large increase in student grades and this would encourage our entire education system to dedicate themselves to make numerous intelligent and college prepared students. Free college tuition is a suitable circumstance that would not only reassure our country’s devoted students, but also assist them and their current economic situation.
The government would be investing their money for a worthy cause. The government would not be wasting their money, but spending it for our future. The money being funded would help educate our country. Many people will have more chances to get into school and have their education paid for to become doctors, lawyers, nurses, and for many other professions. Most students would finish their college education and this will eventually pay off because our country will have many intelligent, knowledgeable workers. The money invested in college tuition would have many decisive effects that could be the start of an improved American country.
To reiterate, education is a very important factor in our country. Students should be eligible to receive free college tuition for a plethora of reasons. Free college tuition will have many positive effects on our student’s studies and help with their financial situation. Our country’s government will be investing in our future leaders, doctors, and educators who will make our country a better place to live. This is a plan that should be incorporated. It would be a transcendent decision that would give many opportunities to millions of our country’s outstanding and striving students.

In an effort to encourage analysis of current events, inventory personal values, reflect on individual growth, and exercise self expression, we have asked our summer YouthWorks intern to write a weekly reflection on current events to be shared on Christ Church’s website and social media. This not only benefits our intern, Kennedy, but also benefits us all by hearing the perspective of one our local young people and looking at the world through a new lens.
