Yeah...'cause gangbangers had such high hopes for quality education so that they can be fine, upstanding citizens.
Your God-President started the Syria thing. He also started the Egypt thing.
...and the Hezbollah thing.
...and he's had all the time in the world to get out of Iraq and Afghanistan. What's stopping him?
Gangbangers? Lovely generalization there, since all lower-class citizens have no intentions to ameliorate their understanding of the world. I hope that was a sarcastic response, if not, it was a terribly dogmatic assertion. If I were feeling a bit more assiduous, perhaps I'd look up rags-to-riches individuals who contributed very tangible assets to society. But, since I'm not feeling that way, anecdotal referencing will be made instead. The combined income of my parents, without factoring in money lost on taxes/insurance/sustenance/vehicle upkeep, wouldn't be able to pay off $200,000 for 4 years. That's without accounting for the fact that the majority of the $55,000 a year my parents make cumulatively isn't used to simply cover basic necessities/taxes/insurance. Let's be unrealistically optimistic, and say that they have $30,000 left-over each year, and I also decide to work a good-waged full time job paying another $30,000 each year. I'll use the majority of that $30,000 to pay for rent, food, etc. In the end, I might have $10,000 to pay for my education yearly. So, unrealistically optimistically I'll have $40,000 annually to pay my school fees. So, after five years, the debt will be paid. But let's be realistic here, I'm not going to have that much to spend, nor would I be able to work a full-time job and go to college. Realistically, my parents will have to pull money out of their retirement, I'll have to juggle a part-time job with schooling, which will lower my GPA to be a travesty of my academic potential, and then when it's all said and done, I'll finish paying off school fees ten years down the road "Assuming my degree gets me a good paying job, which is a supposition at best, and an illusory hope at worst". You're not exclusively disinfranchising "gangbangers", you're depriving capable/talented individuals the best chance they have to contribute optimally to humanity.
