READERS feedback: Free is not bad

RE: Part-time students will pay, full-timers continue for free, July 9 - 15, 2007


Be careful of how you charge for education. Many universities in other countries now charge so much that students are still paying for their education many years after completing it. With some things, free is not bad. I think education is one of those things. The more people you educate, the better and stronger a society is.
