College teaching a lot knowledge, but is not useful in the real world. The bachelor's degree requirement reduces the opportunity to the real talent who does not go to college. We should get the job we want, no matter college or not. Job experience and skill are more important than the paper evidences that you have a bachelor’s degree. If you are one of the high school graduate student, you have know what you want to be in the future and pick the right path.
Maybe it’s not luck at all. It could just be opportunity, not skill. The line “Resign all clubs and committees” (Hague 513) is a joke about what colleges represent. College applications stress not only doing well academically, but to also participate outside of school in extracurricular activities to be well-rounded. It’s funny how on line eleven that Hague who is writing this poem in English, also says to speak nothing like it.
Students not being used to freedom, for example, causes them to not be prepared for the over amount of freedom given during college. This leads kids to put off homework, not go to class, and other bad habits because they are not used to managing their time. These habits can lead to an unsuccessful college carrer, eventually leading to dropping out. A second example at the meso level is students getting caught up in partying on the weekends or even during the week. For a lot of students, being away from their parents means absolute freedom to do whatever they want, allowing a lot of young adults to “go crazy” in the partying scene.
Indeed, these scholarships pay for tuition, room and board, and books, but these athletes don't have money for other necessities. These students still live a college life, they go out with their friends, they go to the bars, they buy new clothes, these scholarships do not pay for those items. The argument can be made that the average college student that does not receive a scholarship, also may not the ability to buy these items, so why do the athletes get this special privilege? My main point on that question could be that these average students are not put on display on a daily basis, these athletes or put on television or the radio, and they make the NCAA and their respected schools money every time they pay the game. They deserve to see some of that profit, they are the reason that these school are making money, but they will never see any of
Every semester, there are an abundant number of students who apply for Pell Grant to assist them with the costs of college. Sometimes, students will not meet the financial criteria because their parent’s income is a bit too high or because of other financial factors that they will not qualify. Thus, it puts a student in a situation where they will take out student loans, that they’ll be paying for many years. Clearly, the result of being someone who has not committed a crime and works to pay for their own education, is the one that pays the ultimate price. Yet, congress wants to financially grant prison inmates a free education, while exemplary citizens are denied.
Free College Tuition From Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders believes that college tuition isn’t in the interest for our country’s future. Bernie Sanders states “It is insane and counter-productive to the best interests of our country and our future, that hundreds of thousands of bright young people cannot afford to go to college” (Bernie). Bernie Sanders’ point is that many of the talented people in our society may not be able to pursue their dreams or pursue their desired job because they and their parents can’t afford college. If Bernie Sanders is right that many Americans can’t afford to go to college, as I think they are, then we need to reassess the popular belief that FAFSA and other scholarships will considerably lower the price for college.
College Tuition Shouldn’t just be Handed out In today’s society, some believe that the given opportunity of school is a blessing. Work ethic, sacrifice and the value of the dollar are not valued in today’s society. How must one individual relay such focus on something that is so valued and determined. Multiple persons devote their own life to how well they provided in school system.
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.
Many Americans now believe that anyone without a college degree is restricted to low-paying, menial jobs,” (Leef). In the American workforce, having a degree is highly valued, but in some cases, not always necessary. In a lot of instances, people will have a degree, but can not get a job that requires that degree. “A substantial number of college graduates ‘end up taking jobs for which college education is not really a prerequisite,’ making any debt they incurred to get the education essentially a waste, argued Ohio University's Vedder. ‘Twelve percent of the mail carriers in the United States today have college degrees,’”
The vast majority of students enrolled in a college campus are extremely unprepared for the environment. Many students do not begin preparing themselves for the college setting until they have completed high school; however, this decision may be harmful in the overall success of the individual. While early college preparation can cause burnout, physical or mental collapse due to overwork or stress, parents and administrators should encourage students to begin preparing for college ahead of time because preparation will result in students beging ready for the vigirous course work, allow students to be aware of the expectations prestigious universities anticipate, and introduce students to the wide array of opportunities that are available.
Many people never want to be the person putting money into another person’s pocket; paying college athletes is no exception. College athletes are at a college to learn about a specific degree. They are not at college to play sports (Cooper 12). Many of the college athletes aren’t considering their education, they want to play their sports.
“College in America” Caroline Bird thinks that a college education may not be the best choice for all high school students because college education does not bring about social equality, it does not benefit them financially, and it is not guaranteed that college will lead them to an elite profession. First of all, high school students are expected to bring about social equality through four rigorous years in college. However, college is an expensive way to categorize the highs and lows in society. It is pressuring to younger students to pursue a higher education that only a few could achieve, and is also difficult for them to established an identity in society. Second, a college education does not benefit the youth financially because it is
What is College Worth? The worth behind a college education continues to shift as times change. This day in age, the educational system in the US is failing because for some reason, earning a bachelor’s degree in a STEM subject does not guarantee a job and that is not acceptable. If someone puts in the time, effort, money and is successful enough to get through four to six years in college, they deserve a job in their field.
In “Are Too Many People Going to College?”, Charles Murray writes, “Today, if you do not get a B.A., many people assume it is because you are too dumb or too lazy” (253). Basically, Murray is chastising the social norm for a young adult to get a college degree. Though I concede that expectations to go to college put on by counselors, parents, and the media are way too much, I still insist that everyone should be able to go to college regardless as it is financially beneficial and provides a unique perspective of the world. Although Murray puts up a good defense of how America infatuation with a college degree can lead to a class disparity, the author lacks the practicality of Core Knowledge, consideration of how a college education has its intrinsic and monetary merits that students can get by completing a degree, and an opposing view that a college degree does not necessarily lessen the
After reading and analyzing, “Is College Worth It?” by David Leonhart and “Why College Isn’t for Everyone” by Chris Matthews, I have concluded that it is important and beneficial to attend college. Although, Chris Matthew made a compelling argument on why college is not for everyone such as, “ Up to 25% of college grads would probably be better off not pursuing a degree, yet nobody actually thinks they are going to be the ones for whom the investment doesn’t pay off.” Unfortunately, he previously had contradicted himself saying, “First, we don’t know for sure how much money this bottom quarter of degree holding earners would have made without their college education.” I disagree with Chris Matthews because although 25% of people who attend college do not become more “successful” than those who chose not to attend college, there a lingering prominent 75% that is out in the world being positively affected by the decision of attending college.
