Liberty and Accessibility

Friday, November 17, 2006

A lot of times, when people go to graduate school, they get their tuition payed for by assistantships. Well, that's nice that people are payed for farther studies right? Most things are not free in life. The money for these graduate students have to come from somewhere. Guess where. Since most of these graduates go to public schools, Americans' taxes are paying for them. In effect, Americans are being forced by the government to pay for people to go to graduate school. The question is, if somebody is not going to graduate school, why should they have to pay for it? It's not like graduate school is accessible to everybody. From what I've heard and read, most of these public graduate schools require somebody to take the GRE (Graduate Record Exam.) The math part of the exam has algebra with algebraic graphs. Even if you don't need algebra for your field, you may be out of luck if the competition gets higher scores than you. Since graduate tuition is payed for by the government, a lot of people apply. Therefore, the schools use the GRE as a tool to weed people out. That's understandable, but if you can't see graphs and Algebra isn't needed for your field, you shouldn't be penalized because of it.
