These Countries Do the Exact Opposite of What America Does When It Comes to Higher Education

Germany made international news last week when they decided to eliminate college tuition entirely (before this, it was less than €1,000-- the equivalent to $1,300-- per year). Meanwhile in the United States, the average per-year tuition cost was $8,655 for an in-state 4-year public college, $21,706 for an out-of-state 4 year public college, and $29,056 for a private 4-year college. The average American college student will graduate with more than $27,000 in debt, and college costs in the U.S. have gone up more than 1100% since 1978 with little sign of leveling off.

In light of Germany's actions, we decided to highlight 5 countries whose approaches towards financing higher education put ours to shame.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In those other countries, education is just that, education. In the US, education has become just another scam to ensnare the people into banker debt.
