... about getting good grades and participating in programs so they can go to college and get
things in life, one obstacle stands in the way and that obstacle is cost.
As a student myself, making college affordable
not only myself but for other students as well,
is significant, not only for
our generation but for future generations as well.
Tuition rate increases
significantly in the past year which making it increasingly
difficult for students to afford attending college.---I don't like this sentence because of 3 different words with 'increase' in them. It just sounds too repetitive.
To some, an eight percent hike
might not like seem like a lot but when room and board, books, and other fees are added to the equation,
then the costs really add up.
This increase has made it difficult for others I know, who
attend college in California,
to be able to not only afford it but to be able to pay their debts off in a timely manner
If income exceeds a certain amount,
then the family does not qualify,
and if the family income is below a certain amount and they do qualify,
then they still have to deal with paying the increasing costs
When our country was first settled,
it was believed that every student would
receive an education...
Prominent jobs such as teachers, doctors, and politicians are obtained only by
going to college,
but if this current trend of tuition increases and student aid increases continue then these jobs and others like them will become a thing of legend. ---How could this be?
You've made some very good points! Watch your punctuation, you don't seem to enjoy using it! Good luck in school and have fun!!
