For as long as I've been a student, I've heard experts, politicians and even some of my own classmates say that "free tuition" is a bad idea.
I've been told that free tuition is "wrong", or "self-interested." Why? Because those who get to college or university are already privileged. Why should our society subsidize them?
I've never understood this argument, but that may have something to do with my own life story. My parents were refugees from Somalia, and I am a first-generation university student in Canada.
