University…why bother?

Starting in September this year, a university education gets a lot more expensive here in England. For most students, fees will be set at £9000 per year. While I don’t want to discuss the pros and cons of setting higher fees in this blog, I will say that I think higher fees are not the way forward. Like health care, education should be free, paid for by everyone, and accessible to everyone. What I do want to discuss is what universities are for. With more pressure on students and parents considering if they should commit to racking up large debts, they are inevitably asking “is it worth it?”. From my perspective the answer is yes. Here’s why.
