Argumentative Essay Every year in the spring time high school graduates are standing around deciding whether or not they are going to take the next step in their lives, whether or not they are going to go to college. Many people believe that college is not worth it, I disagree. College education is worth the expense of tuition. Even though you could have student loans that you will have to pay back after college, it will be worth it in the long run. After you have finished paying off your student debt because of your college classes and education that you obtained, you will be left with more job opportunities.
Although one might say attending college is a good thing, it can also be a bad thing. Parents can be proud of their kids for going to college, but some think college is not worth the time and benefits. Parents work really hard for this money and what happens if the student fails and drop out from college. What happens if you don’t do well in college and you don’t get a degree. Some parents think earning a college degree is useless especially if they are paying for your tuition.
Did you know that depending on the sport, students who play sports in college most likely have less than a 2% chance of becoming professional athletes? At middle schools, high schools and colleges across the country, everyone is arguing over whether or not students with failing grades should be allowed to play sports. In my opinion, a good education is so very important for our country’s youth, especially the athletes. Not a lot of kids are good enough to play in the top college sports programs in the country. But even those who are, still have an astonishingly low chance at making the professional leagues.
If the players or team aren’t very talented then tickets won’t sell, jerseys won’t sell and college won’t be supported, therefore making less money. However, if the team is very exceptional then the opposite occurs the college receives a glorious payday every weekend. Many others agree that college players should be paid as well. In a survey conducted at Hillsborough Middle School, in Pod 7/8c, 14 out of 20 students believe that college athletes should be paid. The other 30% of students believe that college athletes shouldn’t be paid only because of their age, only being in highschool and because they haven’t made it big.
College is not for games, it’s for to take it serious. If those people don’t have a full education neither will the nest generation. 42% out pf 100 of college grads with debt live with paycheck .Many people don’t go to college for many reasons so some colleges should be free. Colleges are for everyone no matter if they don’t have money. Some kids have good grades, there poor and don’t have enough money to pay for college, they miss that opportunity.
Now for the reasons why you shouldn’t pay players there also a lot of reasons. 1st players have never been paid and they were still supporting themselves. (barley) Also college is meant to show kids the responsibilities of the world. It also shows them how to juggle a lot of things life grade and a job and in the real world it would be a job and kids. But then the parents not wanting their kids to play because of injuries and, why would you pay kids if they 're most likely to get hurt.
Recently, the message has become clear to American young people that a high school diploma is not enough for them to enter the middle class. Therefore, a higher education like post-secondary education or above is necessary for the young people. However, a lot of American young people continue dropping out of high school and college because they do not recognize a clear connection between their studies and possible opportunities in the labor market. One specific solution for this problem is vocational education in Northern and Central Europe. Vocational education, a kind of training program, combines study and work simultaneously during middle school and high school.
Also I saw the difficulty that my parents were having for not going to college or having a low level of education. Growing up my parents started to tell me “ that if I want to be successful you have to go to school”, and still I would not listen to them because to me it was absurd to keep going to school after high school. Life as a child is very different then the life of a teenager, young adult, adult or someone that is about to retire. As a child I just want to play around, and just have fun, and continue on the path that I wanted. Yet as I got older especially middle of my junior year in high school, reality hit me in the face, it felt like being hit with a baseball bat, I saw that I wanted to become somebody big in the Army respected by all soldiers,and people, and for me to do that I have to become well educated, have a good personality, and most importantly love God and this country.
My parents cannot speak English, and they are almost sixty years old which make it even harder for them to find a job in California. But they are still trying and doing everything they can to support me. Fortunately, American is so generous to give me an opportunity to have a great education even when I cannot afford it. Every day, I tell myself to try harder to have good grade in class to pay back for my parents’ effort, to say “Thank you” for America, and to take a valuable opportunity that I have in education. However, it is not as easy as I thought.
If it wasn’t for school we would be doing nothing with are life and we would be nothing so high school is so worth going too and you would learn new things and get to do new thing in your lifetime so if you didn 't go you would be sitting on the floor or something and not doing anything with you life so get a diploma and get out there and do new things so you won 't be doing nothing my big dream is to be a seal and you need a diploma for it so go to school and it kinda makes me sad seeing people going down the wrong road and not getting one so if i was you i would get one it will help you so much in life and you wont say its worthless because it 's not you can do anything with a diploma and the more you think about it you could make anything or build anything you want you could make you a lot of money if you go to school and get a diploma i want to get a lot of things in my life and you need more for them and if you didn 't have a job you would get nothing you ever wanted sports if you wanted to play football you need good grades and if you want to play college ball you need a diploma
