so funding to return man to the moon by 2024 or Pell Grants.
“Under a budget amendment sent to Congress Monday evening, the administration would use an additional $1.9 billion in surplus Pell Grant money to fund other budget priorities, including an infusion of new cash for NASA “so that we can return to Space in a BIG WAY!” President Donald Trump tweeted.”
Neither. Those are not the only choices. Get the national debt under control. Unfortunately for neither party has done anything other than run up the debt for over 50 years.
BTW college debt is mainly due to the greed of the colleges. There is no reason that the cost of education must far out pace the rate of inflation. I would like to see a few college presidents testify as to why they are charging so much.
Regardless of how it’s funded, college tuition rates have doubled the rate of inflation. Should college presidents be expected to explain why? Why do they need twice as much as the rest of the world? Where is that money going?
Doing away with general education courses could help a lot of people. Not that you shouldnt be “generally educated”, but you shouldnt need to pay $xxx to do so. If you want, more power to you. But taking say 30 credit hours of random stuff you never use in the working world seems unreasonable. The world is a big place, and the real world has prepared me better than colleges have. Especially when you take into account the cost of tuition.
I think there is a lot of room for unique trade schools, but HR and employers need to re evaluate their education requirements
