College Student Loans And How We Will Achieve Excellence At Our Colleges And Universities

Student Loans is another example of how American politicians choose one extreme side of a position, and then refuse to try to make any effort to understand the other side’s point of view.

Democrat politicians want to be able to pay off some, or all, of the student loans that students borrowed when they were in college.

This is a legitimate viewpoint to put forward because it is true that former college students are weighed down financially by student loans that were far more expensive than they should have been.

Likewise, Republican politicians look at the issue from the point of view of people who do not owe student loans, either because they did not to go to college, or because they have already paid off their college costs.

This is also a perfectly legitimate and fair way to look at the situation because it would not be fair for people who did not go to college and instead went to get a job, or for people who went to college and have already paid-off all their college bills, to have to pay for the tuition costs of other people who chose to go to college.

Republicans are also concerned that paying off the loans would reward the colleges and universities that overcharged on tuition, which would only result in the colleges and universities raising their tuition costs even more.

A Great Leader would listen to both sides of this argument, realize that both sides have fair and reasonable points of view, and come up with a solution that is a win-win for everyone.

The solution is not to use tax money paid by other people to pay off student loans, but instead to require that colleges and universities pay off some of these student loans themselves.

The facts are that many colleges have taken advantage of students and families by increasing their tuition costs far more than the pace of inflation.

For example, a couple of years ago I came across a financial slip from 40 years ago that showed the football department at Furman University, because of my football scholarship, had paid my tuition for that school year while I was playing football, baseball, and running track at Furman.

I was amazed to see that the tuition cost was only slightly more than $2,000 per semester.

This amazed me because I had gotten so used to the very high college tuition costs we have now, that I had forgotten how much less expensive college costs were 30 and 40 years ago.

The nonprofit College Board has found that in the 50 years from 1971 to 2021, the average cost of going to a private college or university, including tuition, fees, books, room and board, increased from $2,930 in 1971 to $51,690 in 2021.

They found this tuition increase was 4.6 times the rate of inflation during those 50 years.

Therefore, most colleges and universities have been overcharging students and families for decades, and so it would only be fair for colleges and universities who have increased their costs far more than inflation to pay off an amount of these student loans.

In conclusion, it is true that former students who owe large student loans have often been taken advantage of by the unfair tuition increases that colleges and universities have charged them.

But it is also true that people who did not go to college, or who have already paid back their own student loans, should not be required to pay the student loan costs for other students who chose to attend college.

Therefore, the correct solution is for the colleges and universities to pay off a portion of the student loans for students that attended their school because they increased their tuition costs far more than they should have.

At the same time, we should also be requiring that these colleges and universities reduce their current tuition costs to make their costs fairer for current and future students.

By our government stepping in to control college tuition costs and student loans, then this will be a win for all students.

It will be a win for former students who still have student loans they owe, a win for people who did not attend college because they will not be required to pay for other people’s college costs, a win for current and future college students who will have lower college costs when they attending college, and a win for current and future people who are not going to choose to attend college because they will not be asked in the future to pay for other people’s student loans.

This solution is also fair for colleges and universities because they receive tax benefits by not being required to pay taxes, they receive a huge amount of government funding paid to them from the American taxpayer, and they receive many additional benefits, all of which in combination have allowed many colleges and universities to build up huge financial endowments, including schools like Yale who has a $41 billion endowment, and Harvard who has a $50 billion endowment.

Many critics of universities now refer to big universities as corporations that just happen to be in the business of education, instead of as the educational and academic institutions that they were designed to be and are supposed to be.

Colleges and universities are also being given $203 billion in government funding this year, and in addition they do not have to pay any taxes on the profits that their endowments earn on investments.

Therefore, requiring colleges and universities to pay off a portion of the student loans that the colleges and universities received tuition payments for from these students, and from the government through federal financial aid programs, is fairer than making taxpayers or the students themselves pay.

This is fair for everyone because it benefits all former, current, and future students by reducing tuition costs in the past and in the future, it saves taxpayer money from being used to pay off student loans, and it requires colleges and universities who overcharged for their tuition to pay off a large amount of these student loans that students should not have had to take out to begin with if colleges and universities had not been overcharging the students.

Moving forward, our federal government needs to reduce the amount of financial aid that we provide to colleges and universities because it is the government financial aid programs that have allowed the colleges and universities to raise their tuition rates at 4.6 times the rate of inflation during the past 50 years.

This is another example of our government not monitoring our government spending because colleges and universities have been taking huge advantage of what they see as free money from our government.

Just like I would do with all our government spending, I would have our Congresspeople monitor and track all the government spending that is going to colleges and universities in their districts and states.

Our Congresspeople would benefit greatly with their re-election chances when they develop excellent relationships with the colleges and universities in their districts and states, and our Congresspeople would also be able to be close enough to the colleges and universities to see the internal and external functioning of these institutions.

Our federal funding of colleges and universities should not be based on the number of students attending the colleges and universities like it is now, and instead we will change this to where our federal funding is based upon the number of students who obtained jobs in the career field of their college major within three years of graduation.

I have been a college professor, head of two departments in the School of Business, a college administrator, and a cabinet member in the president’s cabinet.

During my college education career, I made a tremendous effort to prepare my students for Success in Life and for Success in their chosen career field.

Along these lines, not only did I teach my students the course material, but I also worked to develop their personal characteristics like work ethic, public speaking, and emotional intelligence.

In addition, I made many phone calls and sent many emails and letters to help to get my students jobs in their career fields after graduation.

As a result, a very unusually high percentage of my students have gone on to obtain excellent jobs in their chosen college major and career field.

However, this level of postgraduate success does not usually happen for students because most colleges and universities are only concerned about getting their students to graduation, and then they send these students out on their own to try to find their own jobs.

Most colleges and universities make little to no effort to get jobs for their students because they do not care about what jobs the students get after graduation because colleges do not get paid after students graduate.

Which is why we see so many college graduates now working in jobs they could have gotten without a college degree.

I always felt like my job as a professor did not end when my students graduated. I feel that my students are still my students now, and that they always will be my students throughout their entire Lives and for their entire working careers.

My feeling is always that the most important part of a college degree is getting the job after graduation in their chosen career field.

The students have put in four years of hard work, and their parents have contributed greatly and sacrificed tremendously by paying for their children to attend.

Therefore, I was always going to honor this tremendous student and parent commitment by me making sure that I finished the job and they got started on their successful career path.

With my administration basing our federal funding of colleges and universities on the number of students who have obtained a job in their college major and career field within three years of graduation, then colleges and universities will be forced to care about actually educating and preparing their students for a Life of success in their chosen career fields.

In addition, the colleges and universities will be forced to help their students to obtain a job in their college major and chosen career field after graduation.

Currently, our colleges and universities are being paid to just keep the students participating at their schools for four years and hopefully getting a graduation diploma that the students may or may not ever use.

Therefore, colleges and universities have a profit system going where they do not care very much about whether the students ever get a job in their college major and chosen career field.

However, when we start paying these colleges and universities based upon how many students obtain a job in their major and career field within three years, then suddenly our colleges and universities are going to start paying attention to this area.

They are going to start working hard to prepare their students for a Successful Life and Career, and they are going to start working hard to help their students to obtain a good job in their college major and chosen career field.

In summary, our government has been paying our colleges and universities based on a participation trophy mentality, where as long as their college students are on campus and participating every year, then our government will pay the colleges and universities for these students.

However, our government should instead be paying these colleges and universities based on an achieving excellence mentality, where the colleges and universities are required to actually produce excellent and outstanding students who are ready and prepared to be very successful in Life and in their chosen career field.

Too much of our society has lowered its standards from the achieving excellence level to the participation trophy level.

That is why the United States has gone from having the best education system in the world to having the 37th-ranked education system in the world.

We are going to change that and get back to being the best in the world by having our government financially reward colleges and universities that prepare their students for a Lifetime of Success in their chosen career.

We are also going to work very hard and initiate new programs with our technical schools and trade schools because these are outstanding educational institutions that are actively preparing our young people for career success and financial success in their chosen areas of study.

The career skills that are taught in these schools often result in excellent and very well-paid job opportunities for students, and so these technical schools and trade schools offer an excellent financial success rate.

We will develop new programs with these technical schools and trade schools that will greatly benefit many millions of our young people and our older adults.
