    Although intellectuals and journalists tend to most influence people today, their indirect influence is not well recognized or understood.

    Should everyone be able to purchase a citizenship and education? – citizenship already has a system that works – Education already works for those that want to learn, government funding should be after graduation not before – Any bank could finance a student and keep track of their expenses until they graduate – if they don’t graduate they remain responsible for the funds to the bank – If they graduate then the government could sponsor a low interest or forgiving loan. The Department of Education needs to be unfunded and that 600 billion+ turned over to the STUDENTS who attend any school to be used for their education and not a building to be taught in or a person to teach them or a ride to school
