The article focuses on more about how we could fix the inflation of tuition and how you could make reduce the years for a bachelor degree. However, the author still proposes the question about would the grants still outweighs the cost of a degree. How much can the government offer to a low-income family to make a 4-year university degree possible for them? To summarize the article, Vicki E Alger asserted that the inflation of tuition causes both student debt and government debt.
Vicki E Alger’s article is scholarly and is a reliable source for my research paper. Furthermore, it could be used for my introduction paragraph and my conclusion paragraph. This article contains arguments that could be seen coming from both sides of my thesis statement. This helps me gather information to object against any counterarguments that I will receive. Overall this article contributes the most out of all my sources because of its data and counterarguments. It could be used as a springboard for me to argue with the author.

I could relate this to my working thesis statement about whether college is still worth it? This source differentiates between high income and low-income families and how much debt they will be in if they attended a four-year university.
