    which provide top free educational resources around the world. check it on educateyourselffree.com

    As a teacher and a student I would not be

    where I'm at today without free college education. At most I would be in the category of the working class poor. I would be in debt due to students loans and working just to pay that off. I am forever grateful to the country I live in for the opportunities they give kids like me...

    The Tragic Waste of Potential.

    In my life i have had to be very resourceful to give myself opportunities.  I could not afford to study and i am scared of getting into debt, so i have not had much of an education.  I have got by finding employment by doing unpaid voluntary work and building up...

    There are two sides of that: Actually I also

    think that education should be free for all. The other side is this: Especially in European countries most of children, kids and even adults are not aware how precious the gift of a free education is. I´ve studied myself at university and saw a horror example: I´ve started to...

    No, i dont think education should be free

    for all!!!!! Making education free would mean the money has to be found from elsewhere. The only options available to the government would be to raise taxes or cut services elsewhere. It’s no fairer to cut other vital services than it is to make students pay for education. It...

    Education Is Free For All

    Read, learn and educate yourself. If you have internet access, then you have access to more knowledge than anyone ever had in all of human history. Think about that for a moment. You have access to more knowledge than any of humanity's great minds ever did. If you want other...

    I recently applied to a College in the UK,

    to study Arts. Making education this expensive? I think Education is important to any child in this world. Everyone deserves to be educated. It's sad that intelligent people drop out because they can't afford to take another loan or because books got too expensive. Children...

    Libraries Gave Us Power

    The opening line to the Manic's 'A design for life', inspired by the legend above the entrance to a public library in Newport. Knowledge is power, education is the key, is the only way to achieve a fair and just society, and the pursuit of knowledge is a wonderful thing, and...

    I believe education should be free to anyone

    seeking an education. I'm currently a junior in high school and I'm so fed up with the students who don't care about school. If your not going to school to get an education for a chance at a better life then those students shouldn't be required to go to school. Education should...

    This Is Why

    Education shouldbe free to all. Yes we have the internet and there is a lot of information we can use to self educate. But a big problem with that is you cant goto an employer and tell them how many websites you have read, its all about the academic qualification. Take the open...

    Even when education has little financial cost,

    you must invest very significant time and effort into the process if you are to get the most of it. That said, no student with the capability and the desire to study or learn should be unable to do so for financial reasons. End of discussion. I'm not arguing with anyone over...

    Too True.

    I've dedicated so much time and effort to school but it's almost as if it might not pay off. Not only do I have to worry about getting into a university BUT I also have to worry about paying for it. I don't have any riches to my name, it would be a whole heck of a lot easier if...

    Yes!

    If money was NOT an option, I would be in School. I would be helping myself get a better education. I would be expanding my horizon and improving myself, but because education, and furthing your education is so damn expensive it has been next to impossible to be able to improve...
