  1. There are great problems in educational system that refer to the price of education and the great student debt. Unfortunately we have no changes in our system, as student still have to take expensive and long-term loans to pay for education. But the government does not take any responsibilities over the future educated society and all that we will have in some years is a great debt with no possibility to be cover. As students today have to access no fax loan lenders in Canada just to cover some extra expenses they have.
