“Poverty must not be a bar to learning and learning must be an escape from poverty” this was said by Lyndon B Johnson in 1964 and the problem he was addressing back then, has grown and become far larger and more destructive. The average Canadian student acquires 27,000$ of debt trying to earn what in our society today is necessary, to live a safe, happy and fulfilling life. Without higher education you are not likely to be able to do what you want with your life. Within the last two decades university prices have doubled and along with it so have interest rates. This enforces and maintains the trend of the rich staying rich and the poor staying poor; because of the high price less wealthy people are unlikely to be able to afford university and get a good job.
The end of slavery through the successful military tactics of the Union in the Civil War had the single most important impact as it pertains to education for the creation of educational opportunities for the newly freed African Americans. Prior to this, it was common knowledge that educating a slave was a criminal offense. The Morrill Act of 1862, named for Justin Smith Morrill, was designed to make education more accessible to more people of all socio-economic and social classes. Only, this Act did not take into consideration the education of black people. Due to systematic racism against this minority group, it was not until slavery was abolished that the second Morrill Act was implanted to focus on this long overlooked group. In 1890,
College tuition is a frequently discussed topic now-a-days due to the rising cost of attending a secondary school. A lot of companies and people have their opinions on tuition, but you must understand that companies and people are often biased. You, as an individual, must be able to identify credible sources and logical facts when evaluating a website. Some websites are conservative, while others are liberal. Some are factual and created by someone with a doctorate, while others are created by the crazy man next door. There is plenty of information on the internet, but you must identify the real from the fake.
One of the biggest issues in today 's society is the affordability of continuing education. The increasing cost of tuition over the last couple decades have forced young adults and teenagers to make one of the hardest decisions of their life. They have to make a choice on either putting themselves in debt that could sometimes exceed over $200,000 or battle it out in today 's struggling economy with nothing more than a high school diploma. Now, this should not be the case, everyone should have the opportunity to continue their education without putting themselves at risk or in a situation where income after graduation heavily outweighs their tuition cost. For example, in Kelsey Griffiths case, she is graduating on Sunday from Ohio Northern

Catlin College is located in Zenith, Polis with a population of 52,500. Founded in the 1930’s to meet the educational needs of Zenith and Sullivan Valley, Catlin College was a two-year Junior College division of Ivy University. In the 1940’s, the Junior College became Catlin College, a four-year institution. Catlin College became independent and accredited in 1951 and offered graduate programs for the first time in the late 1960’s. Catlin has increased the scope to include more students from other states with 40% living on campus and 60% of the faculty earned doctorate degrees and 75% held terminal qualifications by 1990. The decrease in population, high school graduates, and the financial stability of Zenith are cause for concern.
According to the website cnu.edu about 67% of Christopher Newport University students graduated in 2014 within six years. This means 33% of the students failed to graduate within six years.

I will overcome my challenges and become successful by seeking advice from experts, adopting effective strategies, and understanding the benefits of a college
Youth gangs in North American culture is simply old news being portrayed as something new. Despite the fact that it is realized that adolescent violations are overrepresented in the media today, the subject of youth gang movements is a significant bind to our general public. In the course of the most recent couple of years, there has been an ethical frenzy made by steady presentation to the media which depicts a measure of youth wrongdoings and savagery. In Canada there are expansive urban communities with high extents of youngsters, a considerable lot of which live in poverty, that now have the issue of managing youth gangs and youth wrongdoings. A significant part of the consideration has concentrated on the viciousness and the selling of

Scarlet and gray, or scarlet and black? My answer will determine my educational experience for the next five years of my life. The Ohio State University and University of Cincinnati have been narrowed down to my top two college choices. Since I want to become a civil engineer, I favored these two colleges over the others for their outstanding engineering programs. Although OSU and UC both have great engineering courses, I think The Ohio State University would suit me better because of the campus environment and opportunities it has to offer.
Many students have enrolled in community colleges or universities after they graduated from high schools because they want to get more knowledge about the specific major which they are interested in such as marketing, chemistry, engineering, and so on. One of the biggest decision students will make is choosing which school they will go into. A community college and a university are two types of school in which both have great student life, lots of opportunities, and qualified professors. However, they differ in terms of degrees and programs offered, tuition and fees, and the size of the classroom.

Choo Choo! This is the sound of the college train approaching. It’s time to say goodbye to high school and see what the world has to offer. Hop on this train to go to different places, meet new people, and achieve many things. The two potential stops on my train are Kent State University and the University of Cincinnati. Both of these colleges are around the same price, size, and ranking but are in opposite locations with different atmospheres. Kent State is located in northeast Ohio and the University of Cincinnati is located in southwest Ohio. Although Kent State and Cincinnati are very similar in most areas; overall, I prefer The University of Cincinnati.
Being just over 30 miles apart, most would think Colorado State University-Fort Collins and the University of Northern Colorado would have much in common. Both universities are four-year public institutions located in similar sized cities. Any outsider would think the two universities are very comparable. However, this is not the case at all. The two institutions differ drastically in cost, student body, and academic excellence.
Since private universities are self-financing institutions, their annual revenue is mainly dependent on their fee collection strategy by offering innovative futuristic and demand based courses. Depending upon the location, infrastructure, quality, innovation, and placement service provided, private universities collect a different amount of annual course fees. Based on observation on fee collection for different courses, the fee-charging strategy of private universities can be divided into Low fees-low cost strategy, High cost-high quality strategy, and Nominal fees-High quality strategy.
