    Is a college education really worth it?

    I am currently in my last quarter of my college education, medical lab technician is my career choice. I currently attend Miller-Motte Technical College. I currently have a 3.96 GPA and have maintained this for two years. The problem with this institution is that I and my fellow students just found out it 's a school for profit, and with this information more terrible news. Apparently we feel that we are being ripped off, the school charges us a program fee of 240.00 dollars per quarter and this fee is supposed to be used to purchase equipment and supplies for our program. The thing is we have never had the proper lab equipment or supplies to give us the proper training in my career. I have to pay those student loans back alone, no assistance. If my money is not being used it needs to be returned to me. When we required about this to the administration no one can give us any answers. We were told it was brought to corporates attention, no responses yet. We have a few students that have graduated from school already that haven't gained employment yet. How will they gain employment when they are improperly trained to obtain a job? Education is always been promoted though this nation as a way to get ahead, but here it don't seem to be the case. The schools motto is " Changing Futures Changing Lives", that is certainly not the case this would destroy anyone life. This needs to be investigated and everyone that attends school or wants to attend school needs to know or the be aware. Money is really hard to come by and poor Americans don't need to be made poorer and taken advantage of, especially by an education institution.
