Why can't we have free college education in the United States?
There are many countries that offer higher education at no cost to the public.
While nothing is free, in these countries, the taxpayers picks up the tab. Of course, this could only occur if the majority of the leaders of those countries place a very high value on the education of their citizens.
So, because the cost of a college degree is so high here in the United States, does that mean that most American leaders and/or Citizens don't place a high value on the general education of their citizens?
How do those countries who offer free college education view us as a democratic nation? Do they think we are just a silly bunch of wealth seeking individuals with a strong military posture and an ample supply of Nuclear missiles? Why should we charge citizens for a college education in the United States?
