You don't have to know right away, but don't miss out on the value that college can bring you. In the article "Actually, College Is Very Much Worth It" by Andrew J. Rotherham, the author states,"College graduates are also more likely to be in jobs with better benefits, further widening the divide" (Rotherham 80). Having a better job and a better salary is good in many ways as to being able to pay for more like a car, house, and maybe kids. Money is a struggle for a lot of people and if you go to college you get an advantage to getting more money.
The authors’ emphasis on “on average” is very effective at showing how their point makes sense and why it should be taken into consideration. I found the way that the authors focused on the minority more than the majority was skillfully effective at showing how some career paths do not require a college education and that the return in investment would not be worth the cost. Throughout their argument I found the writers to mostly use Logos and Ethos in their writing. The Logos is evident by the way they use statistics and the Ethos by how they state telling someone the only way to be successful is to go to college is a disservice.

With great detail, it provides an accurate perspective of the education experience one might expect from a university and from a community college. 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”
Putting a price on the good things in life can corrupt them. That's because markets don't only allocate goods; they also express and promote certain attitudes toward the goods being exchanged. Paying kids to read books might get them to read more, but also teach them to regard reading as a chore rather than a source of intrinsic satisfaction. Auctioning seats in the freshman class to the highest bidders might raise revenue but also erode the integrity of the college and the value of its diploma," (Sandel 44). Sandel is basically saying that putting everything up for sale ruins the emotional and sentimental value.
In the articles “Stop Scaring Students” by Devorah Lieberman and “College Is a Waste of Time and Money” by Caroline Bird, the authors debate the value of college education. This topic is vital to a college student's success because the articles may help mold their decisions. While Lieberman and Bird’s opinions may differ, they share a common interest- to educate students on their options after high school. In “Stop Scaring Students”, Devorah Lieberman argues that a college education is still a valuable investment in today’s world.

With the advent of modern technology and the further advancement within the technological field every single day, it's easy to forget the significance of literacy, specifically the importance of having a thorough understanding of early American literature and the impact that it had on our great country's history along with a knowledge of modern day works and a thirst to read regardless of any diversities.
