Rising tuition and student debt is a pressing concern for college students but also society at large.
For future economic well-being, improvements in civic participation and social unification, we need a system that encourages those interested in pursuing higher education to do just that. Instead, the current system does the opposite: discourages through unaffordability.
A report from Bloomberg shows that from 1985 to 2013, tuition skyrocketed 538 percent, after adjusting for inflation.
