1. The event/issue is college tuition prices being very high.
2. There are no real people in this cartoon.
3. The people represent high school graduates.
The sign represents graduation.
4. The cartoonist's opinion is that people are going to spend their entire lives paying off student loans.
5. I agree with the cartoonist, because tuition prices are so high that if you don't get a scholarship, you will have to take out thousands of dollars in student loans to be able to afford college.
