Education is not a budget item to be cut or removed. Education is not a business. Education is a right. You cannot repossess education. We will not spend a life in debt for four years in college. We will not pay more for jobs that pay less. We will not sit down while our tuition goes up. EDUCATION IS A RIGHT NOT A PRIVILEGE!
