As I look back on my journey to college, I faced many different problems and disadvantages even before taking my first steps on campus. In Linda Banks-Santilli’s “Guilt is one of the biggest struggles first-generation college students face” many first generation students view being the first one in the family as a major flaw before entering college (Banks-Santilli, 2015, Par. 4 &7). The lack of self-respect makes it difficult for students to achieve success without help or motivation. The students have to change their viewpoint about being the first to go to college in their family as a weakness and make it a strength to help motivate them to be better students.
It would be unnerving to witness some sixteen year olds vote; when they can barely make adequate choices for them self, much less for someone else! It can be complicated for them to locate what they want to wear in the morning. One fact that needs to be brought up is, political views.
Is college worth the money? This has been a question asked by millions of high school seniors, current college students, graduates, and parents across the United States. Many argue that it opens more doors over those who chose not to attend while others argue that we send too many students all while increasing the national student loan debt. Author Marty Nemko argues in his article, “We Send too Many Students to College,” that too many students are pushed to go to college. Nemko assumes that those reading his article are parents questioning if college is the right decision for their child.
This amendment will give countries that are smaller less chance of closing legislation. The EU also got rid of the three-pillar structure, and introduces an action of capability between the EU and member states. Another objective of the Lisbon Treaty was to improve the democracy within the EU. To achieve this, the authority of the European Parliament is increased and national parliaments are given a bigger role in the
As senator Charles E. schumer has made clear they can help the economy by paying fines to become citizens. They can also help create more jobs and opportunities for employment. Schumer's point is that by paying fines they can become citizens and are also helping the economy. Some might argue that they are taking away opportunities for american citizens to earn jobs and salaries.
Popular vote is very direct; one vote for every person. It’s a common belief among political critics that the popular vote is a more fair system and will encourage a higher number of voter turnout. Under the restrictions of the Electoral College, specifically in lower populated states, some voters could feel an overwhelming sense of support for a specific candidate. This would give the voter the feeling that their vote would carry no meaning and in turn could cause a lower voter turnout. Since higher populated states have more electoral votes, many believe that the lower populated areas will be neglected.
With teens being influenced in so many directions, most feel the need to have the same socially political view as everyone else. This causes people to do things that they would not usually do. For example, at my very high school, 40 student heard about a walkout. That is all some of them heard; they did not know what it was about, or the actual meaning behind it. Some of them had knowledge beyond that, this action was to be taken in an effort to stand up against gun violence.
Social Inequity Paper Social inequality and persecutions are major topics that have been around for ages. Teenagers in modern America are a large group of people that are in need of awareness for these topics, since it is happening everywhere in their home country. Authors write about social inequality and use it as a proactive tool to spread awareness of these issues, and it can be a large impact. These authors write about these issues because sometimes people who have to live with the problems can not.
Candidates tend to spend a large portion of their time in these types of states to try and convert independents and members of the opposite party to vote for them. Some people argue that this swing state idea defeats the electoral college principle of evening out the power among the states, since the swing states get special attention. The other main issue is that the Electoral College often does not align with the popular vote. This argues against the evening out of power since, it matters more that a candidate collects more states than more people’s votes (“Understanding the Presidential Election”). In the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton secured the
It discussed how teens begin to show interest in the world around them, causing them to take an initiative to want to change their community and how it functions a few different ways at a time. In the article How to get more young people involved in politics, Hanley states: “If only young people in this country knew and cared half as much about politics as they do fantasy football, we’d be twice the democracy that we are today. In a true democracy, we’d demand more qualified candidates. We’d demand more substantive debates. But most importantly, we’d demand a political process that works for all of the people, and not just a handful of billionaires.”
Stepping into a voting booth for a teenager at age 16 or 17 can go either way really. In the article, “Takoma Park 16-year-old savors his history-making moment in the polls” author Annys Shin explains how Ben Miller a 16-year-old who works a part time job and attends high school was part of 350 other 16 and 17-year-olds who were granted the right to vote in municipal elections. Obviously much of the criticism that Takoma City Council received was from the older voters, as they argue that young people barely old enough to drive a car don’t have the experience as well as the perspective to vote. Nevertheless, I believe that even if teenagers at this age are not the most experienced, the City Council should still allow 16 and 17-year olds to vote.
Ever since the 26th amendment was passed, eighteen year olds were allowed to vote. This new voting age led to this new age group showing less representation than older groups. It was then thought of in the Montgomery County to try and change this, so they lowered the voting age to sixteen. This new way of thinking was brought up to try and bring up the amount of young voters they see less of in elections. I support this new change because it seems like a good idea to let younger people have the chance to voice their opinions.
An excerpt from “CQ Researcher” wrote a summary that focuses on how Millennials is one of the most diverse generations of America 's, leading them to possibly reshape our country in their image. The first time I read this, I thought that young adults may not have what it takes to change America’s society. That they didn’t know how, but then you have Millennials vote for President Obama which in fact were most hispanic people, we may have a shot. According to the “CQ Researcher” “ Millennials launch into successful adulthood, causing many to delay getting married, starting families and purchasing a home. This is good because setting back with marriage and families, gives enough time for an individual to understand our country and what is the
Not only Stain argued about Millennial’s self-respectness, he also argued about how this generation are crazy about their technology. He explain that a lot of Millennial cannot live without their phone even for a second in wherever they are . They look their phone wherever they go and do even in classroom Because they worry about to miss some things else. Stein writes that “ W. Keith Campbell, a psychology professor at University of Georgia, who has written three books about generation increase in narcissism. ‘People are inflating themselves like balloon on facebook.’”
My second reasoning for changing the funding and time a person can use it is to make it more beneficial to those who have it. Obviously, the program isn’t for everyone and was meant for only the ones that needed the extra incentive and help for college. By limiting the amount of people using it to lower incomes and increasing the amount given has been shown to not only increase graduation rate but enrollment rates as well. Along with this putting a cap on it after four years is better in many ways. First this allows it to be able to more of an incentive to graduate on time for any given program.
