We Should Have Free College Education
There is no doubt about it, education has become not just expensive but very expensive. In order to get a good job, you need to have a good education and qualifications but it comes at a price.
In the UK students who wish to study at Further Education and/or Higher education level are now finding it increasingly harder to make a decision about their education due to the spirally costs. Until a few years ago the amount of funding that was available through government funding made education beyond the age of 18 a possibility without incurring significant debt on graduation. A student could also apply for additional funding to help with disabilities or difficulties. The UK student is no on a financial par with their counterparts in the USA.
As stated above the increase in the cost of courses has not resulted in a pay rise for the tutors and professors, in fact many of them have had their hours cut but more is expected of them. Many work across two or more colleges or universities to boost their earnings. Colleges and Universities are now run as businesses and businesses need to make a profit, to cover costs and investments.
There has been the issue in the past that due to free college education some students have taken their right to education lightly and opted for College as an easy option rather than go to work or consider work based training. Historically this type of student would not graduate from the course at the same time as the rest of the class, lacked motivation and drive. They would flit from course to course at one particular level rather than show progression to the next level. They were usually called 'career students'.
Following on from this, in the advent of students paying for their college courses, more time and support through academic counselling invested in the potential student. Colleges and Universities realise that education is one of the most important things that a person can invest in. By putting in this extra level of support, students get chance to talk over their education and career plans, meet with teaching staff and even have course taster sessions before making up their mind.
There are also other ways of gaining a college education, namely through sponsorship by employers. This means that not only do you get chance to study the course you want, but also get trained in the practical application of the course during your daily work.
Whether you are paying for your college course or not, the situation is not 'cut and dried', there are pros and cons to both situations.
