California Needs Free Community College

This petition had 94 supporters

College is one of the most crucial things to being successful and happy in life, but many people are being denied that level of education due to the wealth of the family they were born into. We cannot deny these people the chance to get educated and make a better life for themselves any longer. Some cities, like San Francisco and Los Angeles, are taking a lead and providing its citizens the education that they need. There can only be benefits from free community college. It is estimated that Californians with a college degree will make $400,000 more than those with only a high school diploma. It would also benefit the state as a whole since it is estimated that in the next decade, 60% of jobs will require a college education, and only 40% of Americans have a college education. We need to provide this level of education to everyone, not only the people that have lots of money. Imagine if you worked so hard in high school in order to pursue your dream career, but you couldn’t continue since you couldn’t afford to continue their training for the job. Signing this petition is one step towards giving these people the power to improve their lives, and the world.
