As Canadians, we cherish our standards of affordable health care and education. Unfortunately for most citizens, post-secondary education is an unaffordable goal; one that guarantees impossible student loan debts and no promise of jobs upon graduation.
With nearly half of our annual income taken in taxation, our education system should be top-quality and easily-funded, but it seems that students and institutions are all struggling to get by. Trying to excel in school while barely making ends means numerous Canadians are not receiving the best education possible.
Young people are often disillusioned with dim prospects for the future, saddled with unfair financial debts as punishment for their desire to become more educated after graduating high school. We should restore confidence in the educational system through fair funding and support, from kindergarten to the most senior university programs across Canada.
