In my Economics class, we are working on an activism project. I decided to use the topic of Free College Education for my project. It has been a very big topic in my life. Here's how:

My mom has never had the chance at getting a college education prior to her current job. Through her job, her union provided Free Higher Education. This was big for her, and she is now working to get her Associates Degree (she is one class away to graduation!).

Through my mom's union, my brother is also eligible for Free Higher Education. Starting in the fall, he plans to take advantage of it and start taking college classes. He never thought he would have the chance, but now he can.

My boyfriend has always wanted to join the military, following the steps of his father and grandfather. While he is in the military, he plans to get his Bachelors Degree since the military provides it for free. This is great for him, as he never thought he would have been able to get higher education in another way.

Personally, I have always wanted to go to college. Thanks to my High School, I get the change to take college classes at my local University for free. I have used this to my advantage and I am hoping to complete my Associates Degree before I graduate.

Luckily for my family, we have been able to get higher education for free. Unfortunately, not everyone is as lucky to have these opportunities available to them. Many people who have the mental capability of getting higher education cannot do so due to the cost of tuition. In America, higher education has a big impact on people's careers. More people, specifically ALL Americans, should be able to great a higher education so they have a better chance of getting the futures they deserve.
