Education (Latin educere, to lead or draw out) is the systematic development and cultivation of the mind and other natural powers. "Education is the harmonious development of all our faculties. It begins in the nursery, and goes on at school, but does not end there. It continues through life, whether we will or not.... 'Every person,' says Gibbon, 'has two educations, one which he receives from others, and one more important, which he gives himself.'"
John LubbockThe Use of Life ch. vii, p. 111. [ Macmillan & Co.'94.] Instruction, the impartation of knowledge by others (Latin instruere, to build in or into) is but a part of education, often the smallest part. Teaching is the more familiar and less formal word for instruction. Training refers not merely to the impartation of knowledge, but to the exercising of one in actions with the design to form habits. Discipline is systematic and rigorous training, with the idea of subjection to authority and perhaps of punishment. Tuition is the technical term for teaching as the business of an instructor or as in the routine of a school; tuition is narrower than teaching, not, like the latter word, including training. Study is emphatically what one does for himself. We speak of the teaching, training, or discipline, but not of the education or tuition of a dog or a horse. Breeding and nurture include teaching and training, especially as directed by and dependent upon home life and personal association; breeding having reference largely to manners with such qualities as are deemed distinctively characteristic of high birth; nurture (literally nourishing) having more direct reference to moral qualities, not overlooking the physical and mental. Knowledge and learning tell nothing of mental development apart from the capacity to acquire and remember, and nothing whatever of that moral development which is included in education in its fullest and noblest sense; learning, too, may be acquired by one's unaided industry, but any full education must be the result in great part of instruction, training, and personal association. Study is emphatically what one does for himself, and in which instruction and tuition can only point the way, encourage the student to advance, and remove obstacles; vigorous, persevering study is one of the best elements of training. Study is also used in the sense of the thing studied, a subject to be mastered by study, a studious pursuit. Compare KNOWLEDGE; REFINEMENT; WISDOM.

Students will likely feel liberated to borrow more money on the resumption of future loan forgiveness, and universities will take advantage of the additional borrowing by raising tuition, this is pretty similar to the fact that historically 60% of all student aid increases have been captured with tuition hikes, and this will be treated like an increase in student aid moving forward, which suggests that 60% will be countered by tuition hikes.
Well, it's clear to me that we can't do student debt relief every 10 years or so. And I think about this as someone who needed Pell Grants and low-interest student loans to get through school. I paid mine off, but the situation has changed over the last 35 years, we've seen the price of college education continue to outpace inflation. We've seen bad actors in that student loan debt space, and I'm interested in reform, both reforming the process itself — I'd like to see us make more Pell Grants available — and I'd like to see us hold people accountable in that space so we get the price of college tuition, or technical tuition or community college tuition under control.
That could pay for two years' worth of tuition and fees for a student to study in that department or a partial scholarship for the entire four years in school. In-state tuition and fees at UNCW are less than $8,000 a year. And so that money could have gone a long way towards one student's education.
If my own son, who is now 10 months, came to me and said, 'You promised to pay for my tuition at Harvard how about giving me 50,000 instead to start a little business' I might think that was a good idea.
It's resulted in him being even more adamant that he doesn't support tuition increases.
