A Rhetorical Analysis of “Should Everyone Go to College?” Stephanie Owen and Isabel Sawhill’s “Should Everyone Go to College” is broadly argued across the idea that college isn’t the smartest investment for everyone. College can’t just be a pick, choose, then go there sort of deal, it is something that needs to be thought about and carefully observed. There are many factors that go into choosing a college, such as “what’s better, an associates or a bachelor’s” or “how much will college cost?” However, those are just a few underlying factors in considering college. What truly decides if college is the best option is hours of thinking about whether college is going to help in a positive or negative way. The passage talks about the rate of return

In Dr. Martin Luther King Jr paper, “The Purpose of Education”, he addresses the common misconceptions people have about college education, or just education in that matter. Therefore, he views education as the ability to further one’s mind than for social, economic, or political advantages. One example that he makes is that most people think education is supposed to equip them with the ability to have a higher advantage over others, which is a problem I see as well with society. People who have bachelor’s degrees and so on feel they are in some ways more superior. However, there is some truth to that statement, an individual who furthered himself has more intellectual advantages than an individual who stopped once they got their high school
Rough Draft: College should be thrown off a ledge (help i need new title) Deciding whether college is the best path to take can be difficult for many high school students, as it is the deciding factor in determining one’s success in the future. Oftentimes, it is not the students’ choice to make. Rather, it is from the pressures of society that impels them to go to college, whether they are by parents, teachers and guidance counselors, the media, or past alumni who had already gone to college. Students are conditioned to maintain the belief that going to college is the “right thing to do”, that a higher form of education leads to better chances of success in life. Yet, with the ever rising prices of tuition, college seems to be a reach for

According to Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Therefore, what is education through a Christian 's perspective and what is considered an ideal christian college. Are we focusing on the importance of education or have we lost the meaning of education, “a meaning that is large enough to carry the weight of all that college involves”(Holmes3). The fact is that many students attend school to obtain education but for the wrong reasons. One of the biggest reasons that students attend college is for a better paying career, although it is not only this. For this reason, Arthur Holmes tells the readers in the Idea of a Christian College what a Christian college is not.
If the Liberal Enlightenment Theorists were asked whether or not a Liberal Arts degree is worth pursuing in college, their response may be quite different from the opinion of the parents in this antidote. For John Locke, he might say that getting a degree in Liberal Arts — or a degree of any kind — is beneficial to one’s life. This can be explained by his beliefs of labor and property. According to Locke, “For ’tis labour ended that puts the difference of value on everything…”, meaning the labor you exert on anything, whether it be property or something else, is a determining factor of value you create in society (2002). I would argue that the labor used to obtain an education of any sort is of value.
The purpose of education is to improve our thinking which can lead to success. Defining modern schooling and its effectiveness proves to be quite controversial. Based on how the unsatisfactory system is run and the claim that it produces immaturity causes people to start questioning if mandatory schooling is really necessary to achieve an education.

John Taylor Gatto stated in his essay, "Against School," that the American education system adopted its concept from the Prussian system; one idea that instilled separating and educating students based on
The Ministry of Education demands schools to include in their curriculum a class that will extend knowledge on the country’s history; this subject is known as Honduran history. Unfortunately, in many institutions this class is considered absurd and unnecessary. Yet, it provides fundamental insight on Honduras’s colonial period, the fight for independence, the annexation to Mexico, among other events. Instead, schools prioritize history courses from other countries. Disappointingly, a student is more likely to know about an American founding father than Francisco Morazán’s political reforms during his Central American presidency and his dream of unifying Central American countries.
