Education now feeding off the people

-A +A
The educational system in this society is broken. Students in California are unable to afford a higher education due to rising tuition fees. Here are some of the reasons why: (1) Tax and fees going to support state legislators – benefits, (2) money spent to protect corporations from paying taxes, which would support education, (3) tuition and taxes spent on university hierarchy – benefits,(4) privatizing schools to enhance corporate profit at the expense of the students. We have an educational establishment which feeds off the people. However, the elitists benefit, as they feed off the system for tax purposes. It’s not about investing in struggling students; it’s about those who profit from their disenfranchisement. ALLEN CASSIDY, Auburn
