Would the world be a better place if everyone had a college education?

The average price for a four year college is $23,890 a year according to Big Future. The average income for a person is $49,192 a year according to The Balance Careers.Thats without any expenses. Think about if families that had multiple kids going through college at one time. Everything they had worked for throughout their life would be gone in a flash.

That is why I believe college should either be free or a lot less expensive. People say that if you don’t go to college and graduate then you aren’t going to be a successful in life. Well how are you expected to go to college when it’s so expensive.

Or even want to go to college and pay all that and then be paying off loans. Even if you take out loans your still going to pay for college some way. According to CNBC people are normally paying off college loans for 10 years.

But it is not just the price, how many more people do you think would go to college. According to New York Times only 65.9% of people who graduate from high school go to college.

So wouldn’t the whole world be smarter if everyone can go to college. Yes I think so because everyone would be educated, everyone could have their dream job if they wanted it.

So maybe instead of people paying for there college they will be able to provide for there family. They would be able to graduate college and be ready for what where adulting hits them with instead of moving back in with their parents while they work to pay off there college loans.

People should also not be going to college because they do not have the money for it. People shouldn’t have to worry about that anymore and just worry about there schooling and focusing more about their education.
