In my opinion, the author is stating that all the statistics should be laid out for the student and left up to them to decide if they are interested in pursuing college. In sum, then, the issue is whether college is worth the time or money. Though I concede that college is pricey and can consume a lot of your time, my view is that college is the best option after high school.

Furthermore, I felt the essay contrasts the old style college experience with modern day community college life in a way that reminds us not every college student has the privilege of being able to afford to attend an expensive 4-year university. When Addison talks about how the college experience Perlstein describes is that of “his own nostalgia,” I also felt that that Perlstein’s experience is no longer indicative of the modern educational experience that students obtain today at the many community colleges (1). I would have to agree with Addison’s statement, “My guess, reading between the lines, is that Mr. Perlstein has never set foot in an American community college”

In Charles Murray’s article, “Are Too Many People Going to College?”. he seeks to enlighten younger generations and administrators on a socially unacceptable future- not attending higher schooling after high school. He establishes insight through use of examples and statistics throughout his writing. However, he tends to repeatedly violates literary maxims that lead to his writing getting distracted from the main point or leading the reader to become confused by his use of terms. Through his many successes and obstacles, he still manages to create a new perspective on not going to college, making it just as wise of a decision as going to college depending on the career path and scholarly education a student accumulated in prior schooling.
I belong to many task and relationship groups currently. However, a few stick out above the rest. For starters, Upward Bound is a task group that I consider to be problem-solving. In Upward Bound, especially in my senior year, we have had the problem or obstacle of preparing for college. We have gone through, as the DeVito text would define it, a set of procedural rules to follow to achieve success.
After I graduate from high school, I want to go to college and let my studies, grades, and interests guide me toward what I would like to do for the rest of my life. While going to trade school may give me hands on experience, better pay, and less schooling and or time to learn "the ropes" to get my job, I feel college is a good experience all people should have.

College also keeps up on my studies as well as career-based curriculum where with trade school my fear is I will fall behind on my studies, but that can happen with either college and or trade school.

I then realized, once I got to college, I wanted competitive in my academics and future. Gradually, I learned it is very important to me to have been able to connect my competitiveness to other aspects of my life, even though it may not be noticed. I walked onto my collegiate team, and that year the team brought home the 14th straight national title. But for me, I learned that academics are more important for my future than being competitive in a collegiate sport.

No matter what you're trying to do, everything in this crazy thing we call life will come with challenges, and obstacles along the way. You can never achieve anything if you give up the first time something knocks you down.
