In Charles Murray’s article, “Are Too Many People Going to College?”. he seeks to enlighten younger generations and administrators on a socially unacceptable future- not attending higher schooling after high school. He establishes insight through use of examples and statistics throughout his writing. However, he tends to repeatedly violates literary maxims that lead to his writing getting distracted from the main point or leading the reader to become confused by his use of terms. Through his many successes and obstacles, he still manages to create a new perspective on not going to college, making it just as wise of a decision as going to college depending on the career path and scholarly education a student accumulated in prior schooling.
American historian, Russell Kirk once said, “True education is meant to develop the individual human being, the person, rather than to serve the state.” A liberal arts education focuses on developing students into productive citizens by preparing them for future careers, while building their character. Seen as a new approach for further insight and critical thinking, a liberal arts education provides students with a broader worldview for general understanding and problem solving. In his article, “The New Liberal Arts,” Sanford J. Ungar combats common liberal arts misperceptions that prevent future students from attaining a liberal arts degree. Many students believe a liberal arts education is irrelevant; thus, leaving students to futilely
XIV, § 1) It does not stand by America’s past actions and it won’t solve the immigration problem. When children granted birthright citizenship grow up, they will benefit the American economy and its society by becoming influential citizens and taxpayers. While the opposition may argue that we are currently not using the amendment for its true intentions, it’s clear that the way we are currently applying it to modern day is a positive choice. A
America Needs Its Nerds, written by Leonid Fridman, expresses the country’s need for studious people. The United States look down on kids that would rather learn than play sports. Leonid argues that this anti-intellectualism idea is not good for the greater community. Without intellectuals the U.S. will not be as great as countries that value academics. Leonid Fridman uses motifs, hyperboles, and criticizing questions to support his argument on how nerds and geeks are essential to society.
In doing so, it will not only be safer, but in turn be better for companies who trade and do business together. Holt touches upon 9/11 and the attacks to persuade the reader to teach their children at a young age to learn new languages.

Dr. King expresses how we are prone to let our lives be invaded with propaganda, legions of half truths, and how the press is pursuing an agenda that the viewers are fed half truths. From back then to present, while improving the system of public education in the United States is the critical building block to the economic prosperity of our nation and its citizens, providing every child with a quality education is far more important than that. Dr. King wants to show the key to whether society can achieve the principles, values, democracy, and humanity that we claim. Things that Martin Luther King Jr. wrote decades ago about the purpose of education still sound
Allan Bloom advances a controversial thesis in his book The Closing of the American Mind. Bloom postulates that the American educational system is failing today’s students by perpetuating moral relativism while neglecting the “great books”. The great books for Bloom include those of Plato, Aristotle, etc. These books are considered great works of western thought as they approach questions of culture and morality and believe there is a correct answer. Contemporary American society no longer seeks answers to these questions as moral relativism destroyed the existence of an answer.
College may be a whole year away and coming up quick so I feel that starting early by enrolling EN101 will give me a greater advantage. EN101 will overall make me a better student and improve my skills when it comes to writing papers. Realizing that college is more work and slightly harder I assumed the rules and standards would be much more regulated and rigid. Some problems I have faced while writing is making my papers perfect and as the syllabus says, "This class is designed to prepare you for academic writing, for the kinds of writing you will experience throughout your college career." This class will improve my writing skills and put me where I need to be for future classes.

Studying abroad more excellent than studying in Kuwait No one can deny that studying abroad is extraordinarily useful for students. Studying abroad helps students to achieve a higher level of education in plenty of fields that might not be available in their country. It also helps them to learn a plethora of material and gain experience in their life. Further, students who study abroad think the experience is beneficial for their career path and success in the future [e.g., Dwyer, 2008; Orahood, Kruze, & Pearson, 2008]. They also become more responsible.
