Free college tuition is an act that a vast number of students would value from, and it would increase the amount of college attendees. As of now, there are a lot of young adults who do not pursue an education higher than high school. There are various reasons why young adults don’t attend college or a university, but the main reason still happens to be that our young adults can’t afford to get a higher education. We must ask ourselves, will making tuition free increase the number of an educated population? The answer is yes. The more people who are educated, the more opportunities there will be for our country, which in fact comes with a lot of benefits, like economic growth.

By making tuition free, we would see economic growth, resulting in more jobs, and they will more likely fill up the higher-level occupations. That could lead to creating more jobs for those with a higher education.

The bottom line is that making tuition free for those who want to attend or get a higher education would result in a lot of benefits. Colleges would have more students enrolled and our country would see economic growth.
