Some Nevada College Students Will Pay More
Some Nevada College Students Will Pay More

AIR DATE: December 6, 2012

The Nevada Board of Regents approved a plan to charge some students more for their college degrees. Specifically, the board plans to charge those students that are taking longer to finish school. How many students will this affect? Are there students who take way too long to graduate? Should it matter how long a student takes to graduate?
Jason Geddes, board chair, Nevada Board of Regents

    Well typically I found out that students who stay longer at schools are smarter

    If students were paying entirely with their own money, this would be a ridiculous non-issue. Unfortunately, most of the cost of putting students through government universities is paid for by taxpayers who, by the way, do not benefit by paying for others to go to college. Indeed, most taxpayers have not attended college themselves, and, given a choice, I'd guess that most taxpayers would also rather keep the money they've earned rather than give it to a stranger. Bottom line, the basic structure of our higher education system is corrupt, i.e. individuals should pay for their own education, for they are the ones who will benefit.
