Socialist students: ‘Free’ tuition would stimulate economy

Socialist students in Illinois are petitioning to make college tuition “free” because they say doing so would stimulate the local economy.

The Democratic Socialists of America chapter at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale launched a Change.orgpetition titled “Make SIUC Tuition Free.” The petition currently has more than 70 signatures of its 100 signature goal.

“The high of [sic] cost of tuition is directly causing lower enrollment at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale,” the petition states. “This hurts SIUC students, university employees, and the Carbondale community.”

“SIUC Young Democratic Socialists of America asks the SIUC Administration to create a vision of growth including free tuition for all Illinois residents. Let’s end student debt and help Carbondale prosper,” the petition adds.

SIUC student Layne Ellingsworth told KFVS-TV that making tuition free would stimulate the economy.

“More jobs and more students means more money circulating in the local economy,” Ellingsworth said.

The SIUC YDSA chapter held a press conference on Friday to promote their petition.

A free education is worth what you payed for it.

I would offer free tuition to any and all willing to perform a 40 hr/wk job for no pay. Then I’d make some popcorn to fully enjoy the outrage.

And exactly who is going to pay for this “free” tuition? I know I won’t be supporting any snowflake indoctrination camps. Maybe the universities, professors and campus staff will all work and provide services for free too??? Idiots.

What a bunch of idiots. If enrollment is low, then the college is struggling financially. If student contributions to tuition are no longer paid, then how will the college magically prosper without at least 25-50% of their revenue stream? How is the administration of the school supposed to fund this? with printed funny money featuring Karl Marx’s ugly beardy mug on them?
