    Yang has it right, we need to get rid of the bloat in education before we make college free.

    I hear articulate, rational people like Andrew Yang speak about the nuances of complex issues and then I listen to our elected officials in Congress talk about the nuances of complex issues and the difference is staggering. The question I struggle with is how do we get people like Yang into Congress and other elected positions? Why do we get stuck with greedy, stubborn, unintelligent people representing us? I hope (foolishly) that Andrew goes far in the Democratic primaries.

    I agree with the remarks on education, but I think there's one thing that's worth mentioning. I find it haphazard to toss money at college, when our elementary and secondary school systems need work/funding. How do we expect to build a solid roof (college) on our house when our walls (secondary) and foundation (elementary) aren't good? Along those lines, why not push secondary schooling to include more basic life skills? For example, how many high school kids do you think can handle a question like "If you buy a PlayStation for $300 on a credit card with a 24.99% APR and make the minimum monthly payment of $35, how much will that PlayStation cost you in the end?" Honestly, I would be surprised if more than 25% of students knew the answer.

    Kinda like tRump U. Oh, college is not for just getting a job. It’s about teaching the student how to think critically so the general population is not so freaking dumb. You can be in the trades and still go to college. Not to get a degree. But, to take classes you’re interested in. Surprising how college educated leaders feel college isn’t for everyone, isn’t it?! “Keep em’ just smart enough to run the machines and do the work I don’t want to do.” Seems like a short sighted way of looking at the world. I’m pretty sure he went to college.

    Overly simplistic. Has toilet paper gotten 2.5 times better? No. There’s this thing called inflation. I’m sure there is profligate spending on administrators (and their spending habits, going to conferences First Class and staying in 5 star hotels). But that’s not the majority of the problem. Which is: useless degrees.
    I also laugh that it’s ok for a far left Democrat to espouse getting money into people’s hands to spur on the economy. When a conservative does it he’s a fat cat.
    And there’s no burden on the overall economy - quarter after quarter of 3+% GDP growth and historically low unemployment. The only burden is on people who got useless degrees.

    Another factor to take in is that because we have a lack of these technical trades the people who have these jobs usually have to travel ALL THE TIME. That makes it difficult to have a healthy and happy family life when you’re always on the road. With more people in these professions we can keep our jobs local and keep family’s together.

    I went to community college and now transferring to state school with free tuition bc of my grades. I will end up saving over $100,000 compared to the brats that feel entitled to go to a private $60,000/year where they end up indoctrinated and submissive to the system. AND I do my homework, AKA I research what I am taught and I learn things outside of school, there is a lifetime of knowledge in books and internet, but it’s unfortunate that I can be as educated as a brat, but bc I didn’t get the expensive formal degree, I end up last.

    I really like Andrew Yang's idea about alternatives to making money. Getting kids to think that college is only thing that can happen if they want to be successful is where I think our Educational system is failing. I think that if we can educate them on reading and doing basic math most can do a trade or vocational study and make more than enough money to take care of themselves and a family.

    I heard a lot of ideas without concrete solutions. Students pay 10% of their income for 10 years toward their loan and who pays the difference? Can you say "higher taxes"? What if a student cannot get a job or has time when they are not working or decides to work for cash? No real answers here unfortunately.

    Why is everyone acting like the people strapped with student loan debt didn’t enter into it of the own free will. It’s like paying off someone’s gambling debt. You are literally gambling that getting a college degree will translate into a well paying job. How about stop subsidizing bad decisions. Are we seriously going to pay off student loan debt for the wealthiest people in this country? That is who goes to college isn’t it?

    insert GIF of standing applause! college was the worst mistake of my life. I was always fed that it was necessary and that I would never amount to anything. I have NEVER had to show my degree for my career and that monthly student loan payment every month is a harsh reminder. Some fields do require college, but not everything and trade jobs are 100% viable career paths. I am trying to teach my kids this! I just want them to pick a career that'll make them happy and if college is needed, fine, do the work. If not, learn the skills.

    I’m working full time and am trying to get an associates in applied sciences at a community college and the price is insane. Almost 1000$ a class for a community college. However, it does open up a lot of opportunities and keeps me engaged with pursuing a better career, especially coming from a tiny town with nothing but dead end people and jobs. I’m trying to apply for financial aid and scholarships too. College shouldn’t be something that is free for you, but also shouldn’t be so expensive that no one except the upper class can afford it.

    Yang is not presidential timber. He’s more of a secretary of Labor, or Commerce. I don’t want a business man running the country! What he’s saying about over-emphasizing is b.s. Not everyone wants to go to college. Training in the trades should be free, too. I wouldn’t worry about “cost structures.” People should have choices and will decide their best path. Not everyone wants to start a business either. College has been restricted from a vast part of the society, so why would he want to dissuade folks who newly gain the opportunity to study free of charge and debt? His ideas are good but his overall vision is not. Besides, if he doesn’t get the nomination will he still want to serve the people or go back to running businesses? Not that there’s anything wrong with it.

    Thank you! Finally somebody is addressing the extremely flawed education system of this country. I dropped out of college two years ago and went to a trade school instead, and it’s the best decision I’ve made. College will not only suck your money dry, it will also land you in the same group of people who also have debt and you will never be able to escape that financial hole. If we fix the education system of this country, the political system will eventually follow suit. But people like Yang will never be the front runners because they are a direct threat to the establishment.
