A college education is a great thing to have for everyone trying to move on to a higher-paying career. The only problem with this is that too many people graduate with a college degree each year. This makes a college degree worthless in today’s business world. Colleges like Miami Dade College and Florida International University pump out too many graduates each year who aren’t prepared for a tough job market.
The fact that MDC and FIU want more of our money makes me sick. If adults want a degree so badly, then they need to pay for it with their own money. We should not be subsidizing their educations with taxpayer money. People take out way too many loans to be able to afford college and are start in debt.
I would ask that MDC and FIU go to their alumni and benefactors for the cash that they need. Let taxpayers keep the money in their pockets to support their families.
