    If we bring down the tuition rate for grad school, would more people attend?

    Let's just say that the gov't brought down the tuition rate for graduate schools, do you think that this would make more people attend or would it stay the same? By how much should it be brought down?

    Yeah definitely. And that will be beneficial to the economy in the long run.

      I couldn't agree with you both any more !! It would be so much better if the cost of Grad school evennnnn undergrads will be brought down, it's so expensive that I'm some people will be literally broke by the time they finish

      There definitely are people who are broke when they finish AND they choose careers that don't comfortably compensate them for their education and life expenses. Shockingly & sadly there's a tendency for teachers & professors to be in that boa

      that's true, people are broke after masters...even bachelors! But if we bring tuition down maybe more people would actually make an effort to go to college and get and education instead of being unemployed or working in places they don't like

    If you want to bring down all college costs:
    * end tenure for professors so you can get rid of the bad ones
    * end fluff courses where people pay $500 to sit through 50 hours in a class on Beyonce or rap to get literature credit
    * end ethnic studies programs and women's studies programs that turn out far more professional activists than society needs
    * inform people up front that student loans can't be discharged in bankruptcy and the full cost of tuition and fees, so they don't go so deeply in debt only to discover they are shackeled to it
    * encourage people to get degrees with market value instead of assuming that having a degree guarantees them a good paying job
    * stop encouraging kids to double the cost of college by living on campus to feel independent when they end up spending their 20s living at home to pay the loan payment instead of rent

      Tuition is actually usually cheaper if you live on campus, off-campus students tend to pay more per class.

      Michaela - I would think that living on campus would be more expensive, thought I've never done that myself..always lived at home

      Tamara - I love the idea of "encourage people to get degrees with market value"! On the point!

    If the tuition for grad school in particular is brought down, I fully believe there would be a significantly higher number of people getting more education and expanding their professional skills or changing careers. Tuition for college is expensive but I can tell you that my grad school alone (not living & personal expenses) will easily be $80,000 for two years.
    I will be using scholarships, grants, and loans to pay for grad school. After grad school my career will pay significantly more than this per year however, I understand very well that for many grad school is just too costly. I have family & friends who say it simply costs too much to go to college, let alone grad school and the consequences for them and their loved ones are too often not good.

      80,000$ Holyyyyyy wooooow! That's a lot...Where do you attend?
      I'm sure that it will be worth it once you finish school and have a good job big_smile

      I am not in grad school now but I'll be going to a school in Florida. Yes, $80,000! Holy cow, but it will be worth it.

      Though it is worthit, 80K is still a lot of money and something that you have to work hard for. But at the same time imagine what it's like out of state.

    This is the 21st century and are K-12 is still back in the 19th century.
    The plan should be to reduce the 4 year college degree to 3 or even 2 years.
    This can be accomplished by removing the comprehensive courses found in the freshmen year of college and contain them in the high school years.

    Take out the electives in college, and leave that to the students to broaden their learning. Focus in college on what is needed to get a job worthy of spending all that college tuition.\

    As for the jobs, creating more internships at business is worth more than college credits. Academia and business are not twins, not even relatives. Every company has their own way of doing things. Companies can teach the basics to entry level people.

    The whole concept of college needs to be transformed for the 21st century.

      true, I see where you are going with it... I literally can buy a whole brand new first class car with my 4yr tuition money. It's so expensive.
      I like the idea of a 2yr University, so much better than a 4yr, though classes in HS would be a bit harder

      Yes, and high school should be harder than it has been because there is more to learn in most of the subjects, especially technology.

      I think from up until masters, tuition should be brought way down and I mean how about FREE?? jesus..I pay so much for Uni already and it's crazy! Imagine the people who go out of state

      I think that a lot of these courses can be done online. MIT has online courses in computer programming. Quite frankly the students that were on campus for those classes didn't really interact with the instructor that much to make a difference.
