U.S. Election 2012: Defending Education, Capitalism has Failed Our Kids

by Stephen Clarke Friday, Nov. 12, 2010 at 6:41 PM

Stewart Alexander says students can only enforce their demands and stop the tuition hikes by demanding radical change. “For the present, students must hold President Obama accountable. Students must also defect from the Democrats, Republicans and rightwing political candidates in 2012 and support progressive political parties and candidates; such as candidates representing the Socialist Party (SPUSA) and Green Party candidates in 2012.”

California Students are Demanding Change in Wake of Tuition Hikes

Money is available for war, and money is available to bailout big corporations that are too big to fail; however, the cost of a college education is falling directly on the backs of struggling students across America; according to Stewart Alexander, a candidate for U.S. President in 2012.

According to the Associated Press, “California State University is expected to hike tuition 15.5 percent by next fall after finance trustees voted Tuesday for the increase to offset state funding cuts.” The tuition hike is the fourth hike since 2007 and more than a dozen hikes since the beginning of the decade. Within the past decade, the cost of a college education at the California State campuses has tripled.

The tuition hikes have created extreme hardships on working families. Working families have mortgaged their homes and students are buried in debt with student loans that will take many years to repay. More frequently, students have to drop classes, work part-time or full-time jobs, and very often they simply drop out sacrificing a good education.

Stewart Alexander says “This is the result of a corporate two party system that puts war and corporate profits before our children. The trillions of dollars being wasted on war and bailouts would provide every college student across the nation a free education.”

The U.S. government has spent more than three trillion dollars in the past two years trying to fix the sagging U.S. economy; now Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke has introduced a controversial plan to dump another 0 billion into the financial system. Stewart Alexander says he is opposed to this latest stimulus; “These desperate measures are the result of a capitalist economy.”

However, considering this latest infusion of cash will makes its way to Wall Street, Alexander says the national interest would be better served by assisting struggling states that are facing insolvency; such as California and more than 40 other U.S. states. Alexander says President Barack Obama would need to invest 0 billion over the next two years to rescue the majority of U.S. states that are presently in a budget crisis, and another 0 billion to provide financial assistance for struggling students across the nation.

Alexander says students can only enforce their demands and stop the tuition hikes by demanding radical change. “For the present, students must hold President Obama accountable. Students must also defect from the Democrats, Republicans and rightwing political candidates in 2012 and support progressive political parties and candidates; such as candidates representing the Socialist Party (SPUSA) and Green Party candidates in 2012.”
