tuition is held below equilibrium price, then there is a likelihood of certain
situations being born because that particular action will have great effect on both
the state university as well as the students themselves. Thus, a reduction of tuition means state
universities will inadvertently in the future or right away, generate a higher
influx of applicants who would be attracted by the low rate of education. Secondly, the normal space used to teach
students will no longer prove to be productive.
This means that the proportion of the classes at the universities would
be much be larger, affecting the safety and wellbeing of the students and their
ability to learn. Thirdly, the
university would have decisions regarding staffing, expansion and resources for
examples, to meet the additional needs created if tuition is held below
equilibrium price. Additionally,
preventative measures would have to be taken to prevent certain courses from
being over booked. On the other hand,
students will have to struggle to take the classes of their own free will and
2. Using the above-mentioned situation,
education would not really be “equally accessible” as the rapid spike in
applicants then pushes state universities to then must change their approach by
which applicants are filtered and admitted.
As an example, by instituting a grade point average that is of a much
higher standard by which applicants are judged, there will be some certain
grades that would have been considered suitable would now not be allowed to
enroll. Therefore, creating diversity
amongst the applicants there would be some who felt they were unjustly judged
and not given a fair opportunity should their enrollment be rejected. Also, students who would have preferred to
attend a university within the region they are originally from due to their
desire of being home, would now have to apply to a university which is in
another state or a community institute thus causing unexpected financial expenses
to their families as well as themselves.
Another example would be that the university’s dorm rooms, their food
services programs and even the parking lot area which are designated for both
members of staff and student body will now be strained beyond its normal
threshold due to the high invasion that is not a part of its norm.
