I'm italian, me and my dh have 2 daughters (they're still 5 and 27 months old fortunately!), I was looking at price for college here in the USA and it's crazy! Shouldn't the education be a right for everybody? In Italy you don't pay so much (I paid about 1000 euro for one year because my father had a good pay), if you come from a poor family you could also get it for free and they also give you money for buy books. My brother got money for his good grades too.
How can a person start a good life being already on debt?
I was thinking about sending my daughters to study in Italy when they will be older but I'm not sure if their Laurea (italian degree) could be used here in the Usa.

My niece went to college completely free, five-year full scholarship including tuition, books, room & board, and even got free clothes (she was a soccer player and Nike gave the team wardrobes, not just uniforms, every year.)
In NM, if you graduate from a high school with average or above grades, you can attend any state college for free. Other states have similar policies.

Actually Older, there ARE FREE colleges. None of these colleges charge tuition.
Here is a link: http://drake.marin.k12.ca.us/staff/wing/free%20colleges.htm
This is in addition to states that offer tuition-free education.
