Task 2: Some people believe that everyone has a right to have access to unversity education and that government should make it free for all students no matter what financial background they have.
To what extent do you agree ot disagree?


As the tuition fees of higher education have increased inexorably over the last decades, the affordability of this kind of education has emerged as a topic of interest. This has led some to argue that the right to attend tertiary education is the basic right of humans and that such fees should be covered by the government, irrespective of the students' socio-economic background. My stance is that such a policy will have positive impacts not only on the recipients but also on the society as a whole.

On the individual level, providing free-of-charge higher education is the primary driving force behind lifting people, especially the underprivileged, out of poverty. There is empirical evidence that people who only completed high school degrees or do not have any academic qualifications tend to be deprived of promotion opportunities for the sake of their low education levels. As a result, those people can only get low-entry jobs and many of them are found to be unable to feed their whole families. Were the government to wholly subsidize the college education, the bachelor's degree holders, especially the destitute ones, could stand a better chance of seeking employment with high salary jobs, which may act as the motivation for them to work their ways up and disrupt the cycle of poverty.

On the societal level, by providing tuition waiver, the whole country can also reap financial rewards. Take, for example, instead of spending a large amount of national budget to help people with low education levels struggling with their bills every month, the government can help them pursue tertiary education, so that after graduation, they can apply for better jobs and feed their families by themselves. Furthermore, a well-educated and creative workforce is repeatedly found as a precursor for economic growth. Moreover, by abolishing the tuition fees, the government may gain more credibility from its citizens, helping them to control the whole nation more effectively and sustainably.

In conclusion, the provision of free college policy is a wise proposal and needs to be adopted widely in the near future.
