They also were more likely to stay put. In short, black households with high school degrees seemed to benefit from gentrification” (Buntin). Buntin clearly proves and explains that gentrification is for a good cause because it is contributing to our youngsters; college graduates and that gentrification are created for the present population that is seeking resident there. He explains how low-income people are tend to be black and the high-income people are the whites. Therefore, he argues how black high school graduates (low-income people) saw their income rise and they were likely to stay put because of the benefits that they were receiving such as more job opportunities and improved schools.
“If Grade Inflation Continues A College Bachelor’s Degree will have just as much credibility as a high school diploma”by Walter E.Williams which happens to be true people that go to college don’t have to try as hard to get a decent grade for most people they just planout expect to have a good grade when they did not work for it.

These are so reasons how people make more money when they go to college then if they were not to go. Obtaining a college degree will promote gaining a better job. In 2015, 6.2% of college graduates were underemployed (insufficient work), compared to 12.9% of high school-only graduates and 18.7% of people without a high school diploma(Is a college). This goes to show that people that do not go to
“On average, college graduates make significantly more money over their lifetime than those without a degree… What gets less attention is the fact that not all college degrees or college graduates are equal. ”(pg.208 para. 1) Stephanie Owen and Isabel Sawhill are senior researchers at Brookings’ Center on Children and Families, Sawhill is also a senior fellow in economics study at Brookings’. Owen and Sawhill authored the essay, “Should everyone go to College?” The authors use a wide variety of rhetorical devices in the essay, including ethos, pathos, and logos to persuade their audience to take another look at whether college is the right choice for them.
After graduating high school, the majority of teenagers nowadays choose to continue their studies in college to attain a bachelor’s degree. There is no question that education is essential for our future careers. Unfortunately, I have noticed that not all students in my peer group are able to finish college. “Nearly one out every five students in America drop out of college by the first semester.” There are three main reasons for teenagers dropping out, them being: financial issues, academic struggles, and another simply being to start a career.
Specifically, many candidates from other countries are taking American jobs so the number of professional jobs is decreasing. As a result, many workers with a college degree are forced into low wage jobs. Consequently, the bachelor degree is becoming the same value of high school diploma rather than an opportunity to a high paying job. In fact, for many generations a college degree was considered a key to a better life, it is no longer guaranteed. A college degree is now the minimum ticket to get in the door to any white-collar job.
Opening: Hi, I am Brien and today, I am going to prove to you that getting a college degree is worth it. For example, people with college degrees earn a significant amount of money more than people with a high school diploma. According to US News, Among millennials ages 25 to 32, median annual earnings for full-time working college-degree holders are $17,500 greater than for those with high school diplomas this shows the wage difference between people who are college graduates, and people with high school diplomas, and it proves the point that you should go to college. And that a high school diploma will not be enough.
What if there was some kind of magical bridge of happiness in between highschool and college? There are some that feel gap years are a bad idea because of the risk of not returning to school. However, according to Chris Teare of Forbes, the return to college rate is 90%. In fact, students who take a gap year are more likely to finish college in four years than those who enroll directly after high school.
For in Irvine – the more affluent community, ninety six percent of the population graduates high school, while in Fullerton, which is significantly less affluent than Irvine, only eighty-six percent of the population graduates. To some, a ten percent difference in graduation rates might not suggest a problematic case of inequality, but in statistics, such a disparity is statistically significant; that ten percent represents disturbing trends concerning inequality, as those thousands of high school dropouts are at a huge disadvantage in economic, political, and social spheres of American life. Educational equality ensures general political, economic, and social equality; it also follows that educational inequality ensures general political, economic, and social inequality. Generally, American Educational Policies attempt to equally subsidize schools and universities, yet outcomes in these institutions, such as SAT and ACT scores, are far from equal; this is because our redistributive policies do not consider other personal economic factors that might
(Clemmit). Many Americans settle for “high school jobs” because they are unable to find a job that requires the degree that they earned. College graduates tend to receive a higher pay, and are more likely to be hired than someone without a degree, but they are not meeting their full potential. College degrees are not “necessary”, but they can be beneficial when trying to find a job. Many Americans succeed and do just fine without a college
This affects the opportunity of Hispanics attendance to college contributing to the low rate of Hispanics college degree graduates. A college degree education plays a key role in how much income one will and can bring in. For example, a study conducted at Rockhurst University in Kansas City found that “being at a disadvantage in the world of academics is shown in the types of jobs that these minorities have. In 2000, blacks and Hispanics were almost twice as likely as whites to work in the service sector, such as food service or cleaning service, with compensation at $12 per hour” (Restituto and Miller). Hispanics with no college degrees in Kansas are in academic disadvantage as found by the Rockhurst University in Kansas City since the opportunity to attain a college degree depends on the personal income.
According to a Pew Research Center survey “among Hispanics ages 25 to 29, just 15% of Hispanics had a bachelor’s degree in 2013” (Krogstad). This is worrying; it is great to analyze the lack of Hispanics higher education in the United States and the State of Kansas something that one cares about by using statistics and information about the racial gap in educational attainment that explains the lower rates in Hispanics. Hispanics lowest rates of college degree attainment are a result of immigration growth, parental lower incomes, family socioeconomic status, family cultural background, and poor parental involvement. One of the causes for the low rate of educated Hispanics is the Central American immigration population continued grow. The
“We have, for example, more than 100,000 janitors with college degrees, and 16,000 degree-holding parking lot attendants,” (Vedder 78). Upon the matter, in the article, “Actually, College Is Very Much Worth It,” Andrew J. Rotherman writes, “Jobs for recent grads are harder to find, and salaries are lower, but that won’t last forever,” (Rotherham 79). The thing about college is that it takes time, and with time comes change. The economy is getting better, and by the end of one’s college career a job will open up with a position he or she is entitled
“As college students head back to the classroom this semester, a harsh reality confronts them - the rewards for the time, energy, and money that young people put into college are less than they were a decade ago”(Source C). Young college graduates have seen wages, deteriorate. This lack of wage growth has been surprising to those who have read about the ast unfilled need for college graduates. After gains in the 1980s and 1990s, hourly wages for young college graduated in 2000 decreases. For young college-educated men in 2000 hourly wages were $22.75, but almost dropped a full dollar $21.77 by 2010.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and an excellent way to get real world experience but, “at least one student initially chosen as a thiel fellowship, however, ended up turning down the deal, opting to continue her traditional education by accepting admission at MIT”(source E). College is a very important step before starting your career, even Mr. Thiel himself said as a student, he would not have applied for the
