A major benefit of going to college is the amount of opportunity that arises from having a degree. This will allow you to have a higher amount of job availability than those who did not complete college. An example will be if a company is looking for someone with a degree, then that will give you the
In recent discussions of unemployment, a controversial issue has been whether a college education is worth the oppressive debt that colleges thrust upon their students. From this perspective, obtaining a preeminent education is not valued above the threat of student loans that constantly loom over the possessor. On the other hand, however, others argue that a college education constructs the building blocks for undergraduates to pursue more than just a job or career. In the words of one of this view’s main proponents, “Post secondary education should help students to discover what they love to do, to get better at it, and to develop that ability to continue learning so that they become agents of change- not victims of it,” (Roth). According to this view, secondary education develops a student’s ability to rise above change and are not lost to its enormous list of victims.
In todays society, social classes have a huge effect in the Americans lifestyle. What does it exactly mean to be considered an upper, middle or lower class? These three social classes are defined by the lifestyles of different racial families and their income. Education also plays a huge role in defining one’s social class. Someone’s social class doesn’t define how successful they are but those with a further education most likely will have a higher income and live a better lifestyle.
This may also affect me to get a higher professional job in the future. Furthermore, the devaluation of education in Hong Kong may affect my career seeking also. More employers are looking for employees with the higher education background or rich working experiences and the Bachelor degree seems not enough for the employers. Therefore, I would consider myself to be a lower middle class instead of an upper middle class when I am
Now you might be correct about going to college not being a right but like I said before so many future jobs will require degrees that only college can get you. In an article done by the Bureau of Department of Labor, it states that “According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), earnings increase and unemployment decreases as educational attainment rises. Grouping workers by education level, the chart shows that those with more education have higher earnings and lower rates of unemployment than those with less education,” (Education Matters 1). This quote basically says that the more education you get the more money you get. So with this data I can confirm that the higher the education that you get the more money you get so people with no degree will end up stuck behind and unable to really help the economy
People go to college to get a good paying job, have job security, and get a degree. Well at least that’s what it should be about. That’s what Charles Murray believes in his essay “Are Too Many People Going to College.” Murray counters the argument of Sanford Ungar who believes colleges should have a more liberal approach towards its classes and have students actually learn a broad range of real life skills instead of just going into a career just because it pays well. In Ungar’s essay he explains the misperception that Americans have on obtaining a liberal-arts degree and how they believe it doesn’t translate well to the real world. Despite Ungar’s points Murray’s essay touched on many valid points such as a liberal education should be learned
Job employment rates rise and decline, but having a liberal arts degree boosts one’s chance of a job. Ungar states, “It is far wiser for students prepare for change—and the multiple careers they are likely to have—than to search for a single job track that might one day become a dead end” (Ungar, 2017, p. 227). Not every individual receives the job they desire—foolish people assume that their desired careers start once they receive their degree. Although not every individual receives the job he/she wants, students who have a liberal arts degree produce better chances of adapting in a fluctuating workplace. Ungar states, “It promotes the idea of listening to all points of view and not relying on a single ideology, and examining all approaches to solving a problem rather than assuming that one technique or perspective has all the answers” (Ungar, 2017, p. 230).
Though, if I could change one thing, I wish I hadn 't put so much time in editing. It would have saved a lot of time and how I originally had the video was good enough. This relates to what I 've learned in the past by that team work always works. If your work together it 'll make the assignment a lot easier and a lot better. This is quite true since I enjoyed the assignment and the results were outstanding.
Although the amount of people that are for a college learning experience is a slightly larger amount than the people that think otherwise, some people believe that getting a job out of high school without going to college will provide sufficient experience. The main purpose of a college education is to teach work-related skills and knowledge, while 39% say it is to help a student grow personally and intellectually (Pew Social & Demographic Trends). Views on college are usually very split, as seen with the study. Some people think that college doesn't help you while other studies show that a set amount of people believe it is a benefit and it is an experience that is needed and everyone should go through. 61% of United States citizens say a good work ethic is extremely important and 57% say the same about knowing how to get along with people.
In today’s expensive world, it is a common trend that the cost of university education increases as the cost of living increases. Most countries offer free education through high school, yet many question wether university education should be free as well. It is essential to ambitious students to have a university level degree, but not free of cost. These people believe that “if you are good at something, never give it for free”, since anything available for free of cost is hardly valued. Thus, if university education becomes available for free, then students may not find it to be as valuable.
During my time in high school, I would get Bs and Cs, but now at Brookdale, I am getting grades I could only dream of and also enjoy learning athte same time. For example, the ALP was tough at first but during all the journals, the freewrites, and the essays were really were not so bad and they were easier because I paid attention to my professor on writing better and to make my emotions on paper,. To summarize how Brookdale was a good choice for me was I met good people, the courses, less money to spend, has a great hands on learning experience, and getting good grades. For all the new students in the ALP, learn and enjoy being in that program because that program really helped me learn two English courses in one semester so that
The meaning of the Pell grant is to help economically disadvantaged students received a higher education by reducing the burden of the tuition and fee costs, and thereby, increase college participation. However, these good intentions of the Pell grant have caused one profound and unplanned consequence; which is the contribution to growing tuition cost for public and private colleges and universities. Supply and demand are the basic concepts of economics, so it’s no surprise that the increasing demand for higher education brought on by the Pell grant will have the consequence of rising tuition. More importantly, though, when Pell grants are used to pay for college, students are not as concerned with the cost as they would be if they were paying from their own pocket. As a result, the law of demand
I agree with this article. For-profit colleges help people in their education in a lot of different ways. However, many people earn a degree to get a job. If the debt that they procure while doing so is more money than that which the degree can help pay off, that degree will have lost its meaning. Andrew Hacker and Claudia Dreifus support this argument in their article “Are Colleges Worth the Price of Admission?” when they criticize colleges for not focusing on the right priorities to aid undergraduate learning.
This passage is important, as it underlines a point that Bruni makes throughout the entire book: top class schools cater mainly to the top socioeconomic class. This prevents these schools from providing both socioeconomic and ethnic diversity. Bruni wants the reader to examine the experience at highly ranked schools and decide whether that is something worth chasing after and worrying about. Finally, this passage also employs ethical appeal by referencing the American dream: social mobility. Public universities like ASU allow a vast majority of people in and as a result provide a greater opportunity for poorer students to receive educations for life.
