Letters to the editor on college costs, extremism, Kobach

What would it take for a high school graduate with good study habits to be able to attend a college with the same cost as Wichita State University’s tuition and fees with no scholarships (June 20 Eagle)? If this student had a job that paid 20 percent more than minimum wage, and worked 30 hours per week year-round, that would pay for tuition and fees, books and supplies, gas and insurance for a vehicle to be driven for 25 miles per day, social life at $30 per week, and miscellaneous expenses at $29 per week. This would require a 30-hour workweek, 15 hours in classrooms and a minimum of 15 hours of study each week.
