Rising cost of tuition leaves students in debt and using the GET program
The rising cost of tuition is forcing more and more families to use the Guaranteed Education Tuition program [“Get this: tuition program no ponzi scheme,” NWWednesday, Dec. 11].
Along with that though is the understanding that the University if Washington is a business and they are looking to squeeze every last dollar from its students. With the rising cost of tuition, the University of Washington has also been accepting more students from out of state or out of country. When will we stop treating the education of the next generation like a business?
Only then I believe would we start to see tuition costs go down and the GET program would have no more allegations of being a Ponzi scheme. Why does the world need to treat everything as a buisness?
