The corporations control the State. Increase the State!

Where did you get the data? $1 cannot even buy a meal in chinese cities. Not to mention housing etc.

Lots of smart poor people in America denied college opportunities due to cost and massive student debt. Can be done affordably by attending community college a few years, then transferring into a state public instead of a costly private the last few years. I'm all for free education funding for those that take this route IF they get good grades & test scores. And yes...Asians as a group get the best grades and test scores.

An educated society is a better society.

It's the same reason wealthy rock stars from Europe come to America to have surgery because we have the very best in the world for the 1% and crap for everybody else

They have good service for everybody in socialist countries we have the very best in the world for the 1%

you understand the difference now?
They have a slavery system that forces everyone to pay. Please explain the morality of their slavery.

How might this potentially account for the fact that a lot of the job opening phone calls I get are from people from India or of Indian background?

Just get rid of the 1965 Immigration Act and as amended that's bringing masses of Asians here. Then you won't have to worry about overpopulated Asian coming here and eating us out of house and home.

Asia takes the exact opposite approach...

99 percent of their higher education is controlled funded and administered by the government who is beholden to the peoples Democratic vote!

"In mainland China, nearly all universities and research institutions are public and currently, all important and significant centers for higher education in the country are publicly administered"

"In India, most universities and nearly all research institutions are public. There are some private undergraduate colleges, mostly engineering schools, but a majority of these are affiliated to public universities. Some of these private schools are also partially aided by the national or state governments. India also has an "open" public university, the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), which mostly offers distance education, and in terms of the number of enrolled students is now the largest university in the world with over 4 million students."

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_university

America is being taken over by for-profit interests because the corporations have taken charge via government bribery

The corporations don't want you to have high quality government services they want you to pay them a premium for them while they siphon off your tax dollars

once the corporations have access to your tax dollars they will bleed you dry.

American corporate education is bribing our lawmakers to keep free public education out.

They don't care about America's future they just want Americans go get big loans and give them all the money...

The only thing better (for the education corporations) would be the "school choice" scenario where private schools literally have access to our tax dollars however don't have to worry about the Democratic vote

Blackwater (mercenary proprietor) proprietor eric prince's sister (ditzy betsy devos) has been put in command of education via fake president trump

#HOSTILE corporate takeover USA#

This is not pro socialism
This is anti CORPORATE BRIBE of our government...
They are also HIGHLY selective about who goes to those public universities. I really, really don’t think most Americans are willing to have our government say to people “So sad, too bad. No matter how much you want to improve yourself, no matter how hard you are willing to work, you aren’t good enough to get higher education. You can only go work in the factory, never run it.”

Americans who would qualify for that free tuition there, also get it here. They get full academic merit scholarships. We let the folks that wouldn’t have an opportunity to participate in higher ed there go here, we just make them also be the ones to take part of the financial gamble that it will pay off, instead of just the taxpayers.
