So many students are already struggling. I think a lot of people (in their 50s+) don’t realize how much the cost of education has gone up unless they know someone in college. It’s gone up astronomically just since I was in school (I’m 48 so I’m pretty much in the group of 50+ people). It’s the least we can do to help students out. This country treats education as a privilege. Some countries (such as Germany) believe it is a right and a college education is free. As long as it’s a privilege we will continue to have a classist and unequal system. Yes!
