Kanye West Speaks on the Cost of Education, says ''I'd Rather Teachers Got Paid More and Books Cost Less''.
He twittered on Tuesday about how expensive the cost of education is in the US. He illustrated this by referring to his experience with a friend.
"I have a friend who works really hard and makes $370 dollars a day…" West, 38, started. "Her son just got in a really good school and his textbooks are like $400 dollars each… I mean, his mom has to work 2 days just to afford 1 book for her son. She's giving everything she has to make sure her son has a better future…"

After revealing his personal connection to education costs, the Yeezy creator emphasised on the cost of education when the child gets to go to college, adding that money would be better spent in increased teacher salaries as opposed to textbooks.
