Here’s how to reduce the price of college tuition

On Monday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) issued a proposal designed to alleviate student loan debt while rendering college tuition prices nonexistent for students attending public universities. While the notion of a free college education subsidized by American taxpayers is wildly tempting, it is simply a fever dream conjured up in the ambitious imaginations of desperate political candidates pandering to a subset of the population. Because higher education is a commodity and not a right, students will need to provide compensation for their pursuit of knowledge, as taxpayers are under no obligation to subsidize their tuition. However, there are effective means of reducing tuition prices so that students can afford an education while simultaneously graduating with less loan debt.
