for real though.
American higher education baffles me. The best universities in my country are completely free, and even the private ones are not so expensive that it’d force someone to incur in debt.
Could someone tell me how much US students pay to attend college? In Canada, colleges tend to be 3-5K a year, and universities are 5-7K.
Most schools are between 40-60K. Some (like NYU and a few others) are more.
And no. That’s not a typo.
Isn’t it terrifying to know that only rich can afford the quality education to advance in the social hierarchy?
Just imagine some brilliant young minds with the potential to become somebody who could possibly achieve something so great that’ll benefit all of us as a humanity are somewhere working for the dead-end minimum wage job?
Such a tragedy yet the situation cannot be more real.
Also worth mentioning the fact that many of the highly educated engineers and doctors are from overseas or foreign born.
