Clearly neither this person nor the person they're arguing against understand the difference between getting to attend college and actually getting the degree.

In a perfect world, everyone who would actually benefit from higher education would get that opportunity. But I see two potential issues with universal free college:

1) Free college creates the expectation that everyone takes advantage of the opportunity, when in fact college is not for everyone. For me, college would have been four more years of high school. I can imagine this expectation pulling up the ladder for people who can't handle a college workload, but are otherwise good workers.

2) On paper, a more educated workforce is a better workforce. But that assumes that everyone is getting a useful degree. When you have infrastructure to build and maintain, and civil servants to keep paid, making sure Jeremy has a BA in English while he flips burgers suddenly doesn't seem like such a sound investment.

I think it's less on the institution of college that ppl are arguing for and against, but rather a good, college level education.

You can get college level education by being mentored in higher education without going to college, either by luck or other circumstances. Or maybe you land a solid entry level job right out high school where they're nice enough to teach you what college teaches you, anyway.

However. Actually attending and getting a degree, I feel, aren't mean to be free because it's a service provided by paid professionals. So I agree with you.

Tldr; my opinion:

Good college level education should be as cheap and as accessible as possible to as many people as possible.

But attending a dedicated 1 to 4 years of intense academic experience should have an entry barrier: to ensure commitment from the student. Ideally the entry barrier isn't money tho but rather some measure of preparedness.

I just rode my first rollet coaster.

It was scary as hell. It shook up and down, it bounced around, and I felt like my life was about to end.

I loved it.
