Education is probably the most critical and pressing issue for the development of any country and more and more reforms are earned this sector with the passage of time. No body denies the sheer role and significance of education in creating a better nation and a progressive world. Where lots of people manage to have primary and secondary education, provided free in a lot of the countries, it’s difficult to most in getting themselves equipped with the bigger or university education due to the high cost/fee. Hence, there has long been this debate of if the university education should really be free for all.
For a lot of the people say that it should be free as getting knowledge is a basic right and it will not feature a price tag ssru. All the people cannot pay the huge cost of higher education and many of the future Einstein and Marx are wasting their abilities and talents due to the inaccessibility to the universities and university education which makes education an opportunity of a certain class rather than everyone’s basic right. When more people get higher education, there may well be more jobs available for them and the rate of unemployment will undoubtedly be reduced alleviating the poverty in the society and leading it towards advancement and prosperity. Another argument for the free university education goes with the principle of equality where everyone features a right to have equal opportunity and in making university education free, this principle of equality may be fulfilled in converting it into a reality on pragmatic grounds out of the antique box of theory. If higher education is free, tens of thousands of young children and girls would have the ability to get education rather than bearing the burden of part-time jobs in fulfilling the university expanses.
There is other side of the coin too and which will be not and only free university education that brings gargantuan burden on the shoulders of the government.
There will be a lot of investment required and the cost of higher education is excessive so it becomes indispensable for the folks to share a number of the burden of the state which does not have ample resources and money for free university education. Though there can be, as you will find, more special students loans and scholarships in aid of the students who cannot afford the cost of higher education. Another argument is that if university education is free, there is a descend in the value of higher education as there will be less money to pay for the professors and staff and a number of other university resources (related to technical education at higher level). Hence there is a danger of a inferior education once it has been made free for many like water in a ocean.
To conclude, where we could see many hurdles in how of free university education we could also see the exemplory case of Germany in making its higher education free. Much may be learnt from the Germany’s experience or experimentation (hitherto to see) in making university education free for all.
