An exceptional job is only obtained through a college education, but what happens to the brilliant people who cannot afford it? Are the people considered failures because they cannot possibly pay off all of the loans they will face? The United States of America is one of the wealthiest and most developed countries in the world and should figure out some type of plan to make college free. Many people disagree with a free college education, but America should make it free just as the founding fathers intended when American universities were first created because a free education does not diminish the value of education and education is a human right.
Money is the basis of living , even people with lower income degrees could support themselves before the cost of tuition went up drastically. However, when you add student loans in the mix , debt over takes the standard of living. Ellison has heavy focus on this because he wants to highlight a big reason why free tuition can be beneficial for people in the long run. He believes if free tuition was put in place , every college graduate, lower income or higher income, will be able to live within their
Obama once said “And no matter what you want to do with your life, I guarantee that you’ll need an education to do it.” (Obama 67-71) College education is typically considered to be very useful when one is wanting their dream career or a career with good annual pay. Without college education, it is highly likely that employers will not hire people with only a high school diploma. A college level education is valuable because one can have better wealth, is less likely to be unemployed, and better social skills. Firstly, it has been proven that employee’s with a college level education will have better wealth compared to a high school graduate. “Workers with a bachelor’s degree earn about $415 more a week than workers whose highest level of education is a high school diploma.” (“New School, Old Story”) Adding onto that “$22,000 more on average per year, compared to high school graduates.” (“5 Ways Ed Pays”) $22,000 is a very big number for people who can’t afford a new apartment even though they work 3 part time jobs as a high school graduate.
Without successful graduation rates, there wouldn’t be opportunity for growth in the country. College matters because the future of our country depends on the scholars all colleges produce. Although college isn’t meant for a lot of people, its still a great opportunity for students to open their minds to new ideas and possibilities. College offers strong community connections so as going to church and helping out more, it offers better wages as in getting better paying jobs, and can make a person feel accomplished/satisfied by knowing that they graduated and have a
For example, if there were less competition between the individuals and groups, there would be a success for everyone. In this case, the government should increase the salary for minimum wage because it would be helpful for those people who are suffering to provide the basic needs for their families. In addition, to change inequality the government should allow children from poor families with low income to have free tuition until they complete post-secondary. However, poverty cannot be eliminated because it may not be possible in any capitalist societies, but it can definitely be possible to moderate a few changes (Naiman 233). If the government had political, will to do so, Julie Payette (current governor general) could undertake other actions to make a more equitable society (Naiman
The Emperor Meiji adopted a system used by western Europe and north America to educate their citizens. This reform was widespread educational institutions for commoners. “This transformation occurred first in Western Europe and North America… convinced that a limited education for local masses would have a positive effect” (Platt, ND). North America’s education system was believed to have a positive effect on the country. Citizens could now build more technical products and become more efficient, making the country’s economy much better.
if state colleges were free,taxes would skyrocket and where would the colleges get the money to upgrade their facilities, or the money to pay their taxes now like i said before they should be lower. Not alot lower but lower so some of the geniuses in the world can be able to go out get jobs and do the stuff they 're good at.me im ok with the prices now but if they were lower i think i would have no problem with any bit of it. But still i don 't think they should be free despite popular opinion which i honestly think those people understand what would happen if colleges became free. More than likely the colleges would turn out pretty

Have you ever thought of going to college ? well today I will be explaining why college has value . here are my three reasons why college has value .One reason why I think college has value is because college degrees can help build better people another reason is because college degrees create more career opportunities finally my last reason why is because college degrees make healthy living easier My first reason why I think college has value is because college degrees can help build better people . one piece of evidence why college degrees can help build better people is because “Although no college program will teach people everything they need to know in life, the skills they learn for interacting with others and handling life’s challenges are valuable”.this supports my main idea because it explains why there challenges are valuable . another piece of evidence is “ People with college degrees tend to make better life choices
He states, “ In a 2008 report, the college board indicated that college graduates normally have better pension plans and insurance coverage. Additionally, their overall health is better and their life expectancy is higher. Less likelihood of serious illnesses such as heart disease and cancer are noted by several studies on education and health effects, according to the board, since college grads earn more they contribute more to America’s economy and they are also more likely to volunteer and raise better educated children.” With those paid sick days people can go to the doctor when they start feeling sick because they can get off of work and still get paid. Rather than those that can’t afford to take a day off of work to go to the doctor because they cannot get paid sick days. The insurance will also help because people can go to the doctor without having to pay the full price out of pocket when insurances can pay for some of it.
It 's one of Bernie Sanders utopian dreams, it won 't happen, but that 's not to say it wouldn 't be welcome. At the least, our most able students should be able to afford an education with scholarships because it will be the future of the country to have new and fresh ideas to aid the economy in years to
“Economically, he favors tax reform that increases rates for the wealthy, greater governmental oversight of Wall Street and balancing the disparity between wages for men and women. He also believes in a state-administered health care system, more-affordable higher education and an expansion of the Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid systems.” (Bio.com) Also, as a Democratic Socialist, he supports same-sex marriage and believes that women should have the option of abortion. Yet another facet boasted by Bernie Sanders, is his unusual fundraising style. He is not involved with super PACs in order to raise the necessary funds for his campaign, he simply receives small donations averaging about $24.86 per donation from supporters who wish to contribute to his efforts. Shockingly, this is a very effective method, though Hillary Clinton has raised the most money this quarter; 28 million dollars, the money has come from things such as fundraising dinners that cost approximately $2,700 per
Action War Room/Think Progress, April 4, 2014 gives ten reason for raising the minimum wage such as, it will put money into hard- working Americans, reduce income inequality, get people off of food stamps, save the government, would not cause prices to go up, improve people’s economic security, businesses would also gain, children would be secure, will left people out of poverty, would not hurt job creation, and would help people support themselves instead of relying on the government and hand-outs. In a State of the Union Address January 20, 2016 President Barack Obama express to congress the importance of raising the minimum wage for all hard-working Americans when his said to Congress and I quote “Of, nothing helps families make ends meet like higher wages…and to everyone in this Congress who still refuses to raise the minimum wage, I say this: If you truly believe you could work full-time and support a family on less than $15,000 a year, go try it. If not, vote to give millions of the hardest-working people in America a raise.” and since 2013 18 states have already passed laws to increase the minimum wage, helping millions of
Through the use of statistics and contrasting features, Keith Ellison argues that college tuition should be free and accessible to all. Logically, Ellison utilizes statistics to convince the audience by eliminating the student loan debt would significantly help many low-income graduates. Along with statistics, Ellison presents contrasting features to persuade the audience that building a truly affordable higher education system is an investment that would pay off economically. In contrast to education, the nation spends billions of dollars on the gas and oil industry. Ellison argues the money should be going towards education, so we can afford to pay for higher public education.
Bernie Sanders’ progressivist activism most directly affects my life. Although he is not a Senator or Representative for my state, I admire his character and commitment towards achieving national equality. With ideologies far more advanced than those of his presidential running mates, Sanders is the ideal politician for my generation; I chose Bernie Sanders because I truly believe that almost all of his political beliefs are logically and humanitarianly superior to those of other 2016 presidential candidates and on-par with those of many modern countries. Bernie Sanders is a candidate who, if elected president, would catapult America into an unprecedented period of domestic development and prosperity. However, if Sanders is not elected president,
