Having a college degree or anything beyond high school are done to establish a career and a pathway to lucrative employment. Though matter how well managed a homeless shelter is, there are certain quarters of the community who would come up against them. There is always a stigma attached to them by the community they reside in. The best possible way is to create a system to provide them with adequate training and education to create a career lane for gainful employment. I believe the responsibilities not just the government and influential individuals and corporates but to us all to help out.
This scares a lot of people because they believe they need a bachelor’s degree to get a “good” job. A peer reviewed article states that "just as a bachelor 's degree is no guarantee of occupational success, failure to secure such a degree is no guarantee of finding only 'second best ' jobs" (Hoyt). Even without a degree, people can still find a pretty nice job. Of course, the person couldn’t be a doctor or something of that position that requires a degree, but the person could still be a mechanic or a representative of a company or even the owner of their own restaurant or franchise.
The movie Eddie the Eagle is about a boy who always wanted to go to the Olympics and works his way up from the bottom to get there. Although hard work is expressed differently in Eddie the Eagle and Kennedy’s Inaugural Address they both show the importance of dedication for success. Kennedy shows a strong belief in hard work in his Inaugural Address. He talks about people taking care of their own responsibilities and working their best. This is because if everyone works hard the country itself can become a better place.
Society often believes college is a necessary experience for a better future, but I argue that the future will not be any better when student debt becomes a part of life for those who follow that mainstream belief. Most parents often dream of the great colleges and universities that their children will get accepted into; however, they fail to think of the cost to attend those institutions. Financial aids! Financial aids! Yes there are financial aids that students can apply to lessen the student debt.
They say many successful people never graduated from college and that many jobs, do not require college degrees. This is why they should lower their costs. Michael Lemons says” most people don't go to college because they cant afford it some colleges should be more affordable for people to attend to.” with colleges being more affordable people. Even though the government makes a lot of money from college if we had more education we would be able to solve a lot of world wide problems.
In the last 10 years or so America has shifted into a weaker society that thinks everyone should get a trophy but no one should have to work for it. This is an arguement that is brought up time and time again, many people say everyone deserves a trophy and others say only the winner or the best should get a trophy. If everyone gets a trophy for just showing up then that teaches them that they don't have to work hard to rise to the top to earn the trophy or medal. That is not fair for the kids that do work hard to see trophies handed out to the the kids that have not been working as hard. With that being said i do not think that everyone should get a
Part of the college experience is about meeting people, making friends; but even this isn’t for everybody. If anyone even tries to go to a school that is outside their socioeconomic class than they are at such a large disadvantage for making friends with anyone. Bobby Allyn wrote an article about his experience as a working class man going to a very prestigious college. Allyn says in his article, “College is supposed to be a time of self-reinvention, when students discover who they are and decide on career paths. But for me, it has been a time of social readjustment.” When it come to the social aspect of College, students are forced to stick to their social class which is a complete dice roll for if the College selection is good or not.
Most students realize that having a high school diploma will not afford them a life style they desire. Most students have participated somewhat in the business world before they first attend college. Some have had menial jobs where they realize the value of education when another person get the promotion that they were not eligible for. For some students their reasoning to attend is as simple as not wanting to live paycheck to paycheck.
“An important pathway to the middle class now runs through higher education, but rising costs are making it harder and harder for ordinary Americans to get the education they want and need” ( Sanders). Many student who’s families can not easily afford the cost of college often do not further their education after high school. Students that know that their family struggles with money already don’t want to ask for more so that they can go to college. As the cost of college has been on the rise many have talked about wanting to provide students with a free college education. Many bring up that the states grant their students with free public education till they complete the twelfth grade.
and they also make arguments of paying college athletes pointless. Most people agree that if college athletes did get paid it wouldn’t be a total shock but it is just not that easy. These kids should just go through college like the alumni did and it will all payoff when they get their first major job paycheck. The point of college is to get you ready for the real world and if college athletes get paid while in college it totally defeats the purpose of college.
This is a big decision that could impact the lives of thousands nationwide and revolutionize sports as we know it. College athletes should not be paid because of the many benefits that come with being a student athlete and because it is not a realistic resolution. One reason college athletes should not be paid is because of the many benefits there already are to playing a collegiate sport. One being reduced or free admission also known as a scholarship. As the athletes receiving scholarships have a full ride through college their payment is in the form of education benefits as opposed to direct compensation.
Delbanco explains how students have changed their reasons for attending a college when he states, “...yet on the assumption that immersing themselves in learning for the sheer joy of it, with the aim of deepening their understanding of culture, nature, and, ultimately, themselves, is a vain indulgence” (222). Secondary education has become too expensive for learning to be an indulgence. Students only go to college to get a degree in order to gain a high paying career. Davidson explains how dire the situation with low paying job is by saying how the process should work, “Only through productivity growth can the average quality of human life improve” (339). Unfortunately, the productivity growth only leaves a bigger pay gap.
American teens My life compared to the Americans in the documentary is totally reversed compared to theirs. For starters, my parents hopefully don 't expect anything from me at all, only that I get through high school and get a job. They wouldn’t say that I wasn’t special just because my grades were above average but not #topoftheclass grades, they would instead encourage me to try harder in a good way I think. Then the Americans always have a pressure built up on them, for if they don’t get through high school and don 't get into college they would be nobodies and society would think of them as losers and failures.
