I am studying rising costs in tuition, because I want to know why we think tuition needs to stop rising and in what way can we change that in order to help my readers question the number of young adults in debt and find other ways to lower the prices of tuition.
Research Question: How do we feel about tuition and its continuously rising costs?
This first article expresses some very interesting ideas on the cause for tuition to continue rising. After reading this about how much it has increased over the years, it made me question why other countries were able to provide free tuition. I mean, America is over here putting millions of people in debt every year in order for them to further their education, while Germany is abolishing tuition and fees! I do not understand it at all! After reading this article, it made me wonder what other countries do the same thing? What steps can we take to get in this direction? Is there anything we can do to change the rising costs, or will they continue to rise despite other countries doing away with it? These articles inspired me to continue researching to see what else I might be able to find.
