At one time, it was thot that America couldn’t afford free secondary schooling for all its kids. In the early 1900s, you could get a certificate of completion if you finished the 8th grade, and for most kids, that’s where it ended. But we could afford it, and did! Furthermore, somewhere toward the end of the 20th Century, we passed the point where we had a higher percentage of kids going to college than went to high school at the beginning.
Isn’t it time to recognize that, in the Age of Information, college too should be free and available to all? There’s so much more to know, and so many more opportunities to use it to advance human progress, we should treat it as a worthy investment in the future of civilization.
