What if the cure for cancer is trapped inside the mind of someone who can’t afford an education? Is it me or is it only fair that everyone should have equal opportunity to attend any university of their choice?

The situation goes a little like this: A student comes from a middle class family, his or her parents can’t or won’t put any money toward college, and the financial aid package from the school is too small.

There was a time when education was considered the ticket into the middle class. Now, the comfort of the rich depends upon an abundant supply of the poor, and it seems education is merely impossible to access even if you are in the middle class.

My main question is how are we going to better our education system if Romney is elected?

The same candidate that told students “If you don’t have the money to attend college, borrow the money from your parents.” What about the students who don’t have parents with money to lend?

Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All too often we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants.

With that being said, I encourage every student to VOTE. This election is the most crucial for us as students; you have a voice, use it.
