    Those who owe expect taxpayers to pay their debt. They are entitled to get everything free.

    Really, add the $150k in a students share of the national debt to the $80k in students loans why would these kids even bother yet they support Sanders. Good luck.

    Excuse me a second but educated people designed this phone and editing works worse than UAW cars from the 70's(I'll take the 70's cars and mindset over this days mindset anyday).

    Let's see...correcting the above post....

    I'll pass on what was told to me by educated people like themselves.

    There.
    Education is a game by and for the banks.

    Well when the govt will loan you as much money you need on a signature for whatever worthless degree you want, you then accumulate tens of thousands of dollars in debt becoming an expert at 17th century French poetry, only to discover after 5 years of college (year 1 is wasted learning stuff you should have learned in high school) you cannot find a job

    Go Bernie saddle the American tax payer with more debt so people can become more knowledgable in worthless subjects

    Close all the schools except for the rich kids whose parents can buy them a degree.
    Then it will be settled we will have the Lord's and the peasants and if your not born upper class you can't get there

    Looks like you have three of Alinski's rules for commies covered.
    Class warfare, overload the system and the left already controls education. Not bad.

    Open up the steel mills. Ban steel imports. 5 years in there and they can pay cash for college..on Steelworkers wages from the '80's.....of course the degrees won't pay as much, so they can keep the money and forget about college

    Big oil, big pharmaceutical, big banks big everything but big college.
    For some reason a hundred grand for a worthless degree is ok with the left.
    Why so much?

    Because if you have the paper you are "educated " which is crap
    There are different types of education a lot of degrees are worthless
    Gender studies, what's the point, according to the left we are all the same, identify as a woman use the woman's toilet
    Black studies, yes there was slavery in this nation, legally ended over 135 years ago, is there still inequality, yes (even more now thanks to 8 years of Barry)
    Most social science degrees are worthless

    As for only rich being able to access, make the university's compete for students based on academics
    Make universities compete in the marketplace, prices will come down
    Stop paying professors $250k for their graduate assistants to teach

    UofLs president is under attack, what he is paid and his perks could provide full scholarships for 20 students

    another problem facing our beloved youth today is that they think manual labor is beneath them
    As Judge Smails said

    Nobody wants to pay except if you have a union working for you.
    They are all using that trick of 'hiring" independent contractors pay your own tax & social security.
    We are well into the race to the bottom.

    Union membership continues to fall
    People don't see the value anymore and that is understandable
    Thus the race to organize burger flippers and other low/no skill workers and jack up wages this destroying the purchasing power for everyone

    Sorry better organize, it's not right to have a class of workers who can't afford to feed themselves.
    The real beef is what about me?
    If they get raised up what about my raise?
    Well my suggestion is to try and better yourself with job skills and in demand occupations.:idunno:
