I'm assuming this is for an assignment. Why don't you write an editorial, and we can help peer critique it with you? That would be more helpful for you, I think.

What do students and their parents place value on that is purchased, particularly at a high cost. This can include intangibles (things that can't be touched but may have been experienced). Your opinion should be specifically tailored to your personality and should come out in the voice of your piece. Be sure to include personal anecdote, but be sure to use fake names.
