Germany takes another step toward eliminating class divisions...

Germany Says No To Tuition Fees, Yes To Free Higher Education

All German universities will now offer free higher education, after the Lower Saxony region finally changed its policies to fit with the rest of the country. According to German policy makers, free university education for all students is a basic right and that tuition fees would discriminate against and discourage poorer students from receiving a complete education.

“Tuition fees are socially unjust,” stated Dorothee Stapelfeldt, a senator for science in Hamburg, a region which had stopped charging fees way back in 2012. “It is a core task of politics to ensure that young women and men can study with a high quality standard free of charge in Germany.”
A spokesman for the Social Democrats (the country´s leading political party) said during Germany´s elections last March: “Tuition fees keep young people from low-income families from studying and are socially disruptive.”

I have nothing against making money, or the free enterprise system, but not at the expense of others as they do in so many western countries including Canada...
Everyone should have the same rights, but the way things are set up, the low income families have no chance in hell to advance, especially now that tuitions are so high...
This smacks of a consorted effort by the elite to use the poor, keep salaries down and profits up...not exactly a good economic policy....Imagine the buying power if this group was elevated further up the ladder, higher education means higher salaries, higher manufacturing hence more jobs...
But then, no one ever accused the elite to care about anyone but themselves.
Questions is, why are we allowing this greed to continue.
