Maybe because university costs in the US are in the tens of thousands of dollars and students usually have trouble even making ends meet? Most college students, if they work, will take a minimum wage job for less than 40 hours a week. This puts their income below the poverty line, and college expenses are some of the highest expenses most US citizens experience in their lives. A tax break for students is hardly unreasonable.
