    that's my way of saying that everyone should have the opportunity to graduate from college without debt, like when they graduate from high school. i think that the paywall should be removed.

    there's only one way to guarantee something is "debt free"... that's to remove the costs from the payer.... make it "free"

    why on earth would you want to remove value from higher education?...

    I can understand decreasing the costs of higher education , but removing it's value entirely is pretty stupid, economically speaking.

    helping kids to avoid significant debt is not devaluing education. it is encouraging education.

    like I said... make it free...mandate everyone go to college... hand out Free PHDs' for all i care... just be prepared to reap what you sow when it comes to the economy.

    there's a lot that can be done to decrease the costs of a higher education without removing it's value entirely....that's where the efforts should be made.
    you'll probably find wide agreement on many issues geared towards reasonable ends... but i'd drop the whole "free college" thing.... it's nonstarter for some very good reasons.

    the pie in the sky bull**** about free college and high minimum wages belongs in the heads of fringe ideologues where it can be properly ignored.

    Yes. Simple solution. Stop treating higher education as a labor market. The value of higher education is not the money you put into it. It is the education you get from it.

    Free PhDs would only be free in the monetary cost to attain them, not in the ability needed to attain them.
