Poetic Stickup- Put the Financial Aid in the Bag

Educated Latina

EDUCATION is the key to a better life, a concept we have been told since childhood. We sacrifice sleep, family time, friends to write the papers and the the A’s. Then you graduate, so proud that all your hard work has finally paid off and yet it’s as if the economy has no room for your accomplishments. You apply to 30 jobs to get 1 interview. Student loans start knocking your door down to demand their pay! There is a war on college education! Some in government want US, the college students, to pay down the national debt by making college too expensive. Is this fair? Should we stand for this?

Watch this amazing spoken word performance by Carvens Lissaint who speaks for every college student in the struggle for an affordable education.
