Yes I really think government of all countries should sincerly work on this issue. They must make easy giving away of loans to students. The students are the future asset of every nation. From these students on which government will invest money will be just like planting a small plant turning into a big tree giving away fruits. The students after getting easy professional studies will provide fruits to their family and the whole nation. As educated people develop an educated society with an awareness of the harms and bad things of crime.

Education must be with in the reach of everyone who aspires for it. Govt, financial institutions must extend their possible help to deserving aspiring students to move ahead in their education.

Yes I do, tons of kids don't go to school for lack of money and fear of not being able to pay back those loans. How can we continue to have an educated country if kids can't get into college? We should be pushing people to further their education, not having them fear that debt.

Easier? No. Cheaper? Yes. I believe anyone who is will to work hard enough for an education should be allowed to have it, regardless of how much money they can spend. I believe those who don't respect or appreciate what education can do and what it is should not be able to get one.

Yes, I think education should be easier and cheaper to obtain. In South Carolina, we passed the education lottery. Billions of dollars goes into this a year, but yet we are one of the lowest in education. The politicians keep lining their pockets and our children are not getting any smarter.

I think they should...I for one know how hard it is to make it without an education. You work for very little money for someone else, and education is hopefully a way to give yourself something better. I think if a person really wants to go to school, they should be allowed to. Then maybe self-confidencw will improve. Food stamps, welfare, etc, could do down. Plus, our kids will see how getting an education cold be beneficial when THEY don't want to go. Cause life is getting tougher and money just doesn't go as far as it used to.

Yes I think they should. They want people to get off their butts and get a job but they make it so hard for people to get an education. How are we suppose to get good paying jobs and better ourselves if we can't even afford an education. The people who can afford a good education already got money. So its an never ending cycle of poverty. The rich get richer and poor can't get ahead.

Yes, I don't think it should take so long and cost that much to be able to get a good education. How are our children supposed to get a good education and grow up and get good jobs with the way things are now and even for adults who want to go back to school it should not be that difficult. Very good question.
