There are two things that most of us can reasonably agree on:
- That education is important and should be provided to any American that needs, wants, or otherwise shows interest in obtaining it.
- That paying for that education has become catastrophically difficult. And though it used to be that one could go to college, get a good job upon graduating, and then buy a nice house complete with a fenced-in backyard in which to raise 2.5 children, that's now a pipe dream many university students can't even afford to think about.
So what do we do? Some cities, including San Francisco, have already made their community colleges free for residents. But that's just one small step towards a future where education's affordable for everyone.
On Monday, presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren released a memo on how the college system could be altered to make it achievable for all.
