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.
Tribal schools on the Native American reservations across the country should receive the proper funding to teach and educate the people. It’s the best thing the American government can do to a race of people who have had everything taken from them over the years from language to culture and the lives there people. The native american tribes that are around the states are lowest funded as well as low performing on academics which causes the student to feel depressed about their academic rating. Quality of life is different from the country as a whole and is considered to be one of the most poverd people. Students who leave home in pursuit of a better education in their entire career than the ones back home, are more likely going to be home sick.
Over the years this can be paid back while still having more money than those who didn’t go to college. The article by Adam Frank, “What Is The Value Of an Education In The Humanities,” also says, “Average cost of higher education is more than $128,000 at a private school, $96,000 for out-of-state residents attending public universities and about $40,000 for in-state residents at those same public universities.” As clearly seen, if you choose certain colleges, the costs can go down dramatically. This will result in an individual's college debt to become easier to deal with and let the new graduate to even keep some extra cash in his or her
Even high-level schools like Harvard or Oxford, do not promise students to become elites because what matters is how much effort you put into your schoolwork, extracurricular activity, and time for yourself. Also, a better job makes you rich but a successful life is not all about the money. A college is an option for people who want to continue on studying. It is not necessary for students to go to college if they are only thinking about getting
Undertaking my bachelor degree in the first Sino foreign university, the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC), is the first step for me to engage in cross-cultural communication as a learner. The adapting to a western education system requires students, who received over 12 years traditional Chinese education, to use their transferable learning skills within a totally different teaching and learning style. At the beginning, I was faced with difficulties because of many differences in assessment system, attitudes towards answers, student-teacher relationship, and degree of participation. Although the first year of the university is about foundational modules for academic writing, presentations and research, I think the learning would have been more effective if the university had provided students with relevant courses in cross-cultural
They were basically in the low tracking classes while others who did better in their academics were in the high tracking classes. That made them feel as if they are not as good enough as their peers. I recommend schools to keep students together rather than separate them and
Just last year 57% of all American high school graduates decided not to attend their first-choice college despite being accepted simply because it was unaffordable. With the injustice of such high college tuition rates it is no wonder that less and less young adults are attending and the dropout rate is increasing. If public colleges were tuition free, the people would be better educated, the American dream would be even closer than ever before, and our society would flourish. Free higher education can be a possibility, many foreign countries are able to successfully run while still offering free college tuition, why can’t America? Free College is a pivotal necessity for today’s youth without it society will crumble.
In Hong Kong Context, Hong Kong doesn't really have enough support for people with disabilities.Hong Kong just provide education and training services such as Special Examination Services or Advisory Service.For example: As I worked as a Programme Worker in one of the secondary school, school use idea of mainstreaming, where students use to sit in the same class with same lesson plan, but their examination hour is longer than the other classmates. However, I never felt other classmates of their classes discriminate them because of their disabilities as they has been educated and knew how to treat and behave with them. On the other hand, I also felt they were being isolated and having no close friends really even though the classmates used to talk to them like other
China’s education system offers nine years of compulsory education and the admittance to colleges are cutthroat in China. Although the education system is hailed as one of the best systems in the world consistently producing best students but there is a great disparity between the students from rural area and those from the major cities of China. Around 60 million students from the rural areas are left behind in this rat race, while many of the children from the urban areas attend schools with sophisticated technology and highly qualified teachers. Rural students cannot compete with their counterparts from the urban areas and as a result most of the young people travel to factories in Guangdong province and other industrial provinces for work. The
The entry test I took was actually alright, it consisted of things I learned in primary school. But still I thought I would not be accepted because this was a private school that only the best people would be able to attend. When I received the acceptance letter I actually way quite proud of myself. The first day was really intimidating: this was a new school after all and there were so many different people, students and teachers alike. Looking back, the school was a lot more diverse in terms of nationalities or skin color than my current school.
