Chloe talks the importance of education for young women in America.

Chloë Grace Moretz takes politics extremely seriously. The Hillary Clinton-supporter recently opened up about the biggest challenges facing young women today.

Talking to Elle she said,

“My biggest issue as a young person, male or female, is our educational system. When I turned 18, I decided that I couldn’t justify the expense of college. I’ve made all my own money—I’ve worked my butt off, and all of [my] savings, I’ve made those myself. And I can’t justify spending my own money and throwing it away to go to college just to pay it back for 15 years. That’s going to make me resent an experience that should be so fulfilling.”

She added,

“I told that to Hillary Clinton. I said, ‘Why can’t we make it so when kids turn 18, they want to go to college?’ It should be free.”

We couldn’t agree more! When it comes to higher education, America is one of the most expensive countries in the world. Why does that need to be the case?
