Betsy DeVos threatens students’ rights

Betsy DeVos is aiming to pull the rug out from under campus assault victims across the country. DeVos, Trump’s Secretary of Education, has announced an egregious plan to roll-back the Obama-era “Dear Colleague” guidance amendment to Title IX policy. In April 2011, the change was made to Title IX policy that enforced that colleges must take an active and serious role in combating and preventing sexual violence on campus. This policy...

The importance of Obama’s forgiveness plan

Former President Barack Obama has provided an alternative option among college students by proposing a loan forgiveness plan that was enacted in 2015.

The new high school diploma

Community college should be free and anyone who tries to argue the contrary needs to be informed of the reasoning behind it. Unlike yesterday, a high school diploma is literally worthless and means nothing in today’s world. When it comes to making money, those with a college degree are bound to make more than high school graduates, even if that means working at a job that doesn’t necessarily require a bachelor’s degree....

Debunking the Minimum Wage

Minimum wage provides economic care to workers and provides an access to consumer products, however, it also brings its own consequences. The California Fair Wage Act of 2016 seeks to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour; that is both good and bad. Good in the sense that it will allow for the worker to obtain more and even have a better life quality. Bad in the sense that those jobs could be automated in the future. The CEO of...
