people with college degrees watch their paychecks go up and down with inflation. ( Shierholz ). Even with a degree substantial pay is not guaranteed. “hourly wages for young college-educated men in 2000 were $22.75, but that dropped by almost a full dollar to $21.77 by 2010 “ ( Shierholz ). Wages for college graduates are not as high as they use to be.
Now you have to compete with large numbers of applicants for fewer number of jobs. Likewise, the value of the high school diploma has dropped. There is a big gap between an annual earning and unemployment rate of college graduates and high school graduates. High school graduates are doing even worse financially. The research acknowledges that unemployment rate and pay gap between college graduates and high school graduates is higher and
The college athletes already receive scholarships paying for everything in their college experience. They do not need to receive payment for play on top of that. These kids are not professional athletes, so they shouldn’t be paid like one. Also, the schools with the most revenue would buy out all of the good players and this would make the league not as competitive. The schools with the most money would be the best in the league and there would be no problem dominating the league.
Many Americans now believe that anyone without a college degree is restricted to low-paying, menial jobs,” (Leef). In the American workforce, having a degree is highly valued, but in some cases, not always necessary. In a lot of instances, people will have a degree, but can not get a job that requires that degree. “A substantial number of college graduates ‘end up taking jobs for which college education is not really a prerequisite,’ making any debt they incurred to get the education essentially a waste, argued Ohio University's Vedder. ‘Twelve percent of the mail carriers in the United States today have college degrees,’”
Nothing in life is free, it may not come out of your pocket directly, but it will come out of someone else’s. It doesn’t help that students are not committed to school now. The graduation rate for first time students at the regular four-year public establishment is 48.3%. How does that make sense and why make it free if we can’t even maintain our college graduation rates up? Making college free to all is not going to give the big picture a great return on their investment.
Basically you are doing it because you can make a lot of money, that is totally fine, just remember that there are people out there that are less fortunate than you. Some people can’t afford to go to college and they not able to pursue their passion because they don’t have the same opportunities as you, they could have a job that they doesn’t pay much and that they don’t like, so keep that in mind the next time you say you hate what you are doing but you are well educated and have a college degree. You should treat college as it were a gift, and not all people get to receive and enjoy this gift of higher education
Ungar thinks more students should major in liberal arts because it’ll make them well-rounded and have a better set of skills than someone who specializes in a certain major. While a liberal arts degree isn’t a bad choice that just doesn’t fit every person that wants to go to college. First of all, even if someone wanted to have a liberal arts degree and specialize in a certain major that’s going to take even more time depending on the major. That’s a long time in school and most importantly that’s a lot of money being spent if you’re paying for it out of your pocket. Then, a liberal arts degree doesn’t fuel the economy as much as the science, technology, engineering, and math majors (STEM).
Many people argue that this is still the biggest hitch for all the people, especially for those who are not very wealthy. Eventthough some people think that higher education is not worth it, I believe that there are many benefits of taking higher levels of education. People think that higher education does not guarantee you to have enough working experience in the future. However, you will be seen as competent and more prestigious with a degree
Blinder argues that people don’t really care about the amount of education someone has, they are just worried about getting the job done and the efficiency of the work. In reality, if it comes down just getting the job done, would the employer want someone who is educated empirically or would the employer want someone who has just been shown what to do but cannot explain how they get the job done? College is an enormous and important expense that most high school graduates have to decide whether or not the education is worth all the time and if it 's a squander of money. College is worth every dime
In fact, alternative education might be the best option for current high school graduates, as it costs significantly less than a four-year college education and looks more attractive to prospective employers. Overall, it is important to consider whether the debt can be paid off after graduating and if getting a good job is a realistic expectation. That being said, even with the enormous tuition rates, more people than ever are going to college. Since a bachelor’s degree has become a cultural expectation, some people are forced to choose between getting a degree or being looked down upon for the rest of their lives. This forces people who possess a different skillset than the one colleges are looking for to pursue bachelor’s degrees, even though they would be a better fit for some different higher education institution, like a professional school.
Most employers will ignore applicant without a college diploma. I agree with Hsu perspective that job searching will be made more difficult without a college education. Do I think college is right for everyone? No. However, I do see the value college has to offer.
What is College Worth? The worth behind a college education continues to shift as times change. This day in age, the educational system in the US is failing because for some reason, earning a bachelor’s degree in a STEM subject does not guarantee a job and that is not acceptable. If someone puts in the time, effort, money and is successful enough to get through four to six years in college, they deserve a job in their field.
This affects the opportunity of Hispanics attendance to college contributing to the low rate of Hispanics college degree graduates. A college degree education plays a key role in how much income one will and can bring in. For example, a study conducted at Rockhurst University in Kansas City found that “being at a disadvantage in the world of academics is shown in the types of jobs that these minorities have. In 2000, blacks and Hispanics were almost twice as likely as whites to work in the service sector, such as food service or cleaning service, with compensation at $12 per hour” (Restituto and Miller). Hispanics with no college degrees in Kansas are in academic disadvantage as found by the Rockhurst University in Kansas City since the opportunity to attain a college degree depends on the personal income.
Andrew Hacker and Claudia Dreifus explain that the well known colleges are getting all the money. That just doesn 't seem fair to me that certain colleges are getting more money than other colleges. I understand that some colleges are big and might need it to pay the teacher and other resources , but the extra money for big
Theses kids are going to division one college, which are very expensive. Most of the athletes who go to division one college, they are mostly likely not in the same state and if they are not in the same state as the college, it would cost even
