      No! Your all wrong. They need to make sure that only a certain class of people are able to afford college and that is the elite. Is too many people get a college education it makes it harder for the elites to get the higher paying jobs because of more competition. The goal is to make college even at the state level so expensive that it’s unattainable for middle class citizens.
