Free education should be provided for everyone by the government regardless of educational level,some people believe the government should be able to ascertain that everyone is educated. On the contrary,others believe that education should only be free in the primary and secondary levels only. This means, individuals will have to pay for their tertiary education themselves.
On one hand,there can not be a civilized environment without a high level of education,this can only be achieved by providing free education for all,both at the primary level and the secondary level. It is also known that students will have a specific interests or ambition to what they want to become in the nearest future and this of course can not be realized by dropping out in secondary school. They need to proceed to the university where these dreams can come to actualization.
If the government cater for all levels of education,there will be less percentage of drop-outs and almost everyone will be educated.
One the other hand, the government needs money for other sectors of the economy. Sponsoring every child in all educational level can be capital intensive as there are lots of bills and allocations to be made.
If the government can provide free education for students in the primary and secondary cadres and utilize the money meant for their tertiary education on other sectors like Health and Agriculture,the society will improve a bit.
Although, I am of the opinion that education should be free in all levels as this will aid and increase the population of the elites in our society. Also, the poor and average people will have a future as they will know that all their children will be educated no matter what happens.
Please help me. I welcome all corrections.
