Farcism of Affordable Education

Your mouth and hands are not a poop hole. So why spew such matter from them?
But so the Department of Education has done in parallel with Obama. You should read the fudge sausage before going through my commentary. It will enhance the "preaching to the choir" attitude if you are outraged.

So let's go...
I’m thrilled today that President Obama is moving forward with an ambitious new plan to make college more affordable for every American.
Government price control is wrong and always fails.
We know that higher education is more important than ever, but we also know it’s never been more expensive.
Actually we are failing to value tradesman, err, or, tradesmen. Blue collar "hands on skill" does not require college but apprenticeships.

As far as the cost of college, if the government didn't get involved the costs would be more reasonable.
We want college to be a secure investment for every student from every background who is willing to work hard, an investment that prepares our nation’s students for a good job and a bright future.
***sigh*** There is no such thing as secure. Secure is a goal, but not a true absolute.
We believe the cost of college is a shared responsibility among the federal government, states, colleges and universities, and our students and families.
Oh good Lawrd! Believe!?

The cost of college is the burden of the individual that wants to retrieve the education through a desired receptacle. I don't feel any shared responsibility of sending anyone to college!
because we know that too many students are struggling to repay their debt today – President Obama is committed to ensuring that students who need it can have access to the ‘Pay As You Earn’ plan that caps federal student loan payments at 10 percent of discretionary income, so students can better manage their debt
"Pay as you earn" has horrifying debt forgiveness. That means you pay for so-in-so's education.
We need more colleges and universities to keep college affordable while delivering a high quality education, not only for students who are first in line, but for all, especially students who are first in their families to enter college, students from disadvantaged circumstances, students with disabilities and veterans who chose service before completing their education.
Because the government is involved in student loans, the value gets distorted. By the way, "veterans who chose service before completing their education" have a guaranteed resource. So they are not a valid part of your argument.
We need states to increase higher education funding, with proven strategies for student access and success.
No. The states should not increase funding. Let the market bear the value of the product.

By the way, I have no degree, but have taught in the private sector and military. I am a teacher without a degree.

Consider all options. The "standard" is not the rule.

Live well.
