There have been people who wanted to go to college to get a degree in the field they love but they couldn’t due to the ever rising cost of college. And these kids are forced to go work at jobs that don’t require any degree just to make ends meet due to the cost of college. Also another idea that could work is move the cost of tuition “away from students and onto taxpayers” most
Michael Benotti Dr. Stoffer ENG 131 29 January 2018 College Tuition Unfair to Some People Like many people today, especially in America, they say that college is an opportunity that most would look forward to after graduating from a secondary education. However, the price of tuition in many schools is what concerns many individuals who seek the opportunity of pursuing their dreams and goals. When it comes to tuition, people would view the price tag and might have doubts about attending college or even question if college is the best option at all. Also, many colleges will offer financial aid, scholarships, and grants to their future students, especially the ones who come from a low-income family. For a student from a high-income family, the amount of aid will be significantly lower, and the overall cost will be higher.
Having the right attitude people will be able to avoid senioritis with full force. According to Weisman(2014), as soon as someone falls into the not caring attitude it will be difficult to get out (Weisman, 2014). If someone decides to start not caring during his or her senior year and go through the whole summer break with no school work, it will be hard to get back in the swing of things when the first year of college comes. Another way Weisman(2014), says to avoid senioritis is, take classes that give college credit (Weisman, 2014). Taking college credit during high school will save many people money and time in college.
Of course, there are also arguments based on the belief that learning in and of itself is a worthwhile endeavor. In this passage, you will know some of the pros and cons of still studying in college. In first place, there is the need of the students to decide what to do after high school, which is not a small task. Many students decide to follow an untraditional path. There are many factors of why students don’t want to go to college, one of these factors is that they think they would not handle it, that they already earn good money, but one of the principals is the cost.
Having free tuition for college means that more people who cannot afford it now, would end up going. This is a good thing in terms that more people are getting a good education and continuing their educational careers to hopefully obtain good job, but it also decrease the value of a college education. If more people are able to earn degrees, it devalues them. Finding jobs even with their qualifications would be difficult (Should college be free?). This idea would also apply to the students, mainly student-athletes, that work for multiple years to try to perfect their skill and obtain full or half scholarship.
Parents try to lead their kids through example and instilling good moral values, the real test begins when kids become teens. First time jobs for teenagers is one way to see their maturity level, some reject the idea of authority by others that are not their parents. Their lack of appreciation and acceptance of authority reels them into a self-destructive path rather than a path of maturity. Sammy like many other teens in his position makes rash decisions without thoroughly thinking the consequences,“Sammy, you don’t want to do this to your Mom and Dad”(Updike, John). We can see how Sammy didn’t understand the consequences until he was faced with the severity of his actions.
Eventually, time will tell if fear interferes with success in college. The power to change the situation resides in the hands of an individual, who is willing, capable of going beyond their fears to achieve success in their lives. Fear cannot define a person; instead, a person defines its fear. An important step for an individual to conquer, essentially, is to initiate college despite the fear perceived in an individual mind. First-time adult students fear to begin college, fearing the possible failure, unfortunate not all students have the time to attend college as a full-time student, having responsibilities and busy schedules.
In today society, people are easily looked by their college degree level and they can be judged by their degree. But not everybody can afford to go to college in order to get a degree. People have different reasons of not going to college but most of the reasons are because of the tuition. Tuition are too high and they can not afford it. If the free college situation does not make a great effect on the economy, I believe that college should be free because free college can encourage more students to go to college, earn a degree and can decide on their future without the worry of paying debt and contributing to create a better society with their knowledges.
To begin with, the free charged university education provides the opportunity for the poor. There are so many students who have eager to learn but cannot afford to pay tuition. In fact, without education is offered to the talented students among them, the society wastes them and takes the chance to live better life from them. While in the past people went through the difficulty which changes their inborn social class due to the decided level of education, they can now be rich or gain fame by educated talent. My uncle is a good example of this.
I may have realized the goal of getting there but I was in no way prepared. I would say that my first college experience, the independence and the challenges were exhilarating. But the traumas of high school inhibited my ability to be successful and I needed to step back and think about my choices. Self -doubt took hold and it was a time when I needed to focus on what skills and mindset I needed to have if I really wanted a career in psychology. It is interesting that being a psychologist was always how I saw myself.
