Day 27: College should be free.

That’s it.

That’s my whole point.

You shouldn’t have to pay for college at all. I’m re-enrolling and I have to pay almost $60 for an access code to a virtual book. A string of numbers and letters is going to cost me close to $60. My financial aid is also acting weird so I might have to pay $960 just to take the class in the first place! I don’t know about anyone else, but that seems drastically unfair to me.

College educations are rapidly becoming mandatory. Almost every job wants someone with “experience” and a degree, and the positions they’re offering are often times unpaid internships. This is a problem. We need to start paying interns and make the college educations we supposedly value accessable to all.
