It is a long-held belief that education is the cornerstone of the American Dream. Still, American colleges’ costly tuition hold our country’s young minds back from receiving higher education. Those who do attend and graduate college often face crippling debt that follows them well into their adult years.
The U.S. is among the wealthiest and most advanced countries in the world and prides itself on rewarding hard work, dedication, and determination. Together we can determine a path to making affordable college a reality and rewarding the hard work of our students. The greatest country on Earth is failing to provide one of the greatest gifts on earth – education. This must change.
