Write 5 pages thesis on the topic why should people pay for higher education. The trend is leading to a situation where the student will find himself or herself paying for the higher education\, and this can be attributed to various reasons
The states are facing a period of slow revenue growth rate that hassled to rising costs in public education, in health care as well as corrections according to Bligh, McNay, and Thomas (6). As a result, the tuition fee at both state universities and colleges is being viewed as ‘user fee’ for the education beneficiaries. Higher education is regarded as ‘user fee’ because the particular degree acquired marks the individual’s social achievement. Therefore, given the many necessities that the state has to check on compared to the rate of revenue growth the state has seen it important to push the burden of fee payment to the students. Government funding in most areas of the economy has led to slow revenue growth, as many people are not paying tax. As a result, the government should reduce their funding on some of these areas and one of them is the funding of the higher education system.
Practically the fiscal pressures hence leaving the state at financial crisis have faced every state in the United States. Due to this, the state has been faced with difficulties in funding the higher education. Hence this has required students to dig into their pockets and pay for them. The economy has been growing fast, and this has required the states to focus on some , areas of the economy as opposed to others. In this case, the higher education has received little attention from the government. Hence, this leads to the fact that people need to pay for their higher education as the government uses those funds to focus on other areas of the economy.
People often have various interest on the type of degree they want to pursue in relation to what they want to benefit from in their education.
