College has to be one of the most expensive privileges of life. You are paying for your  future, which costs a lot. Between tuition, books, and housing college has to be one of the most  expensive things you could do. Many people don’t have the option to attend college just because  of the major costs. Yes, scholarships and grants help a lot but most of the time they don’t pay for  everything. Some students even start and then realize how much it is and they have no option but to drop out. Yet we have a lot of people starting college every year, but it seems to be that we  don’t have a lot graduation every year. Then we have some that would love to attend college,  don’t have opportunity and end up working at McDonalds. In my opinions yes college should be  free, but the only way that could happened won’t help our society.  One of the ways that college should be free is raising taxes. Our recent presidential  candidate, Bernie Sanders, mention his great desire to make college free for every student. His  idea was to raise taxes and use that extra money to cover the costs for college. Here are the  reasons why I do not believe that raising taxes would cover for college. While there are a lot of  tax payers, there are way too many students that would take this opportunity and attend college.  While many people don’t attend now because of the money factor, when college is free the  percentages of college students will go up. When that percentages go up that means colleges will need more money to function. More students will need housing, and meal plans. While taxes  could pay for tuition and won’t be able to pay for the rest of the costs.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
