Introduction: One thing we all have in common in this room is, college has affected us in some way. It may have made us more opened minded to new experiences, maybe made us harder workers, maybe assisted us to learn more about a subject, or may have just caused us to have financial stress. My goal here today is to not only convince you that attending a community college should be free, but to also give you a course of action to help make this possible. As we all know community college offers the same classes you would find at a university or a private college for a much more reasonable price. In fact if we compare Clemson’s tuition to Tri County Technical College tuition, there is over nine thousanddollar differences. I also know that it’s a expensive thing for the American government to fund. But, still students are struggling to pay for tuition at community colleges and it’s forcing some prospective students to opt out of higher education, out of fear of debt. II. I. Fear of debt A. According to inside higher education any student who exceeds 20 hours of working, it starts to affect student grades. When a person is scared of amassing debt that student will be more focused on trying to stay debt free then focusing on building a future. B. Time magazine top five stresses the average college student has is the need to repay loans, cost of education, borrowing money for college, necessity of find a job after college, and of course the school work. C. Nancy Molitor a clinical psychologist and public education coordinator with the APA, says that financial stress is one of the most difficult types of stress. D. Financial stress can cause a person to start binge eating or even drinking excessively. It can not only affect a person’s behavior but also increase the risk of developing ulcers, migraines, heart attack and sleep disturbances. II. Cost the government has to spend on tuition A. According to usnews be 10 billion dollars would be spent on paying community college’s tuition over the course of ten years. B. According to Commercial Observer the government spent a total of $146 million to upgrade federal employees to business class. C. The national institution of health according to foxnews spent 1.5 to study obese lesbians. D. 2012 our beloved government spent 25 million dollars on teaching Moracans how to design and make pottery. E. We have money to help develop our youth to become assets in society rather then liabilities. III. Conclusion: So what can we do I started on petition on petition.whitehouse.gov on making community college tuition free. I would like all of you tonight to go on the website and sign that petition. I am reminded of what Johnson Dickinson a founding father once said “United we stand, divided we fall”. If we think about if we don’t help our fellow Americans stand on their own feet, when they are calling out for support as the quote I just mentioned said we will fall. If we develop our youth and give them the right education we can create a stronger generation who will create more jobs, and will keep this country the powerhouse it is right now. We stand together under one flag and its time we lend a helping hand to our fellow Americans. Thank you for your time.
