Starting off life in dept!

The education system in Canada has become way to corrupt and the government should be interviening mor with universities. The average person spends up to $4000/year on tuishion and not to mention the price of residence being over $15,000/year plus the money that it costs for food and other necessities. You could be thinking about over $80,000 for just 4 years of education. The government pretends to care by allowing you to take out loans called OSAP (where I'm from) but that means coming out of universities with a boat-load of debt and no source of income.

Students then are left with finding part-time jobs just to pay down their debt and to find themselves a job that requires their degrees. Then for the next 5 years of having your big fancy adult jobs you are left with no desposible income because all the money you make is going straight into the governments pocket. While our countries government is going on about there social programs, when we are still trailing behind most European countries.

Why has the Canadian/American governments failed to take action on these problems? Well that can be explained by one; the one thing you never hear the government stop complaining about.... Money! Yet with most countries in Europe being in a large recession, they still find enough money to help there citizens out of this unavoidable cycle. Even Ireland has a social program that helps students go through school. Why has our governments abandoned us? Why aren't we taking action? Well there is only one explaination; people these days are to lazy to take action, even I am not taking action. We need to go out and protest! Show the government who actually runs the world; The people and not the governments.

  1. Something's gotta change. If we're to live just to return our college debts, we don't have much of a life ahead of us. I say we should sit down and discuss what we can do. We've ignored communism for far too long.

  3. Funny thing is, student debt is the only debt you cannot claim bankruptcy on. The ONLY legal way to get rid of student debt if you can't pay is to die.

    The cost for tertiary has been constantly rising, even in the recent uncertain economic climate, proving that now more than ever is the time for reformative action.
