Higher education in the 21*^ century is a necessary step in the steepening staircase to a decent middle-class existence. Globalization fueled by the proliferation of instant communication and innumerable other technological advances has created a world In which competition is no longer face to face, but spans continents in search of the most suitable individual. Without the opportunity to attend college, American youth would be swiftly marginalized in the modern economic system with little opportunity for advancement. American students with sufficient merit deserve .the ability to gain a college education regardless of socioeconomic status. Student financial support wanes in an increasingly market-based system of higher education with an escalating enrollment demand. Consequently, debt weighs heavily on a significant proportion of graduates at a time when economic security is hard to come by.
