Why do we have to pay to gain knowledge?

I think we should just give everyone free education & not just the education that we never remember or care bout. WE as a people should all want to learn and further the human mind set pass the horizon pass the stars. We have the technology but it isn't dispersed to the community as a whole but only a select few who can afford it.

The theory is that free knowledge is under valued.
