A student might have to drop out and get a job to provide for younger siblings or a parent. This would be an understandable reason to not continue college, but is very specific to certain people or families. Another personal case of why an individual would drop out is college is it is just not the right fit for their life. College does teach valuable life skills and provides an advanced education for those who need it, yet some professions do not require a degree. If a student is not getting valuable instruction for what they want to do, it would be the smart thing to back out and peruse an apprenticeship for example.
There are plenty more reason I think that not everyone should go to college but these are the main ones. While I admit that college would benefit a lot of people but it is also a place where a lot of people find out things about themselves that they wish they never had found out, or they have things that they wish would of never happened to
According to the article, “Those coming from the workforce will also have their own particular challenges when they lose the structure of work and daily deadlines and demands,” meaning that many students have learned how to deal with the work world already but just need to know how to put this towards their daily school lives. Many students don’t need to be taught how to budget and how to work around a new schedule because they are putting in the conscious effort to already do so. If students aren’t doing it or aren’t making their lives easier by coming up with a budget, or with an assigned schedule then these students just don’t care enough to do
In Marty Nemko’s essay, “We Send Too Many Students to College,” I thought he presented his argument about how a college degree does not necessarily mean that you will succeed in life in a subtle yet smart way by utilizing a personal connection with the subject of his essay. Or as Aristotle explained in The Art of Rhetoric, the appeal to authority (Ethos). Additionally, I thought his incorporation of the two stories about the individuals who obtained their degrees, but could find a job with their aforementioned degrees was a very honest way of descripting what I believe is happening in today’s educational institution. However, I do have to refute Nemko’s appeal to authority (Pathos) towards the end when he lists off numerous figures that have
Quiet Strength talks about a lot of things. Respect is a just one part of Tony’s journey. Though respect may seem little, it can have a huge impact on our lives. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to keep friends, have good relationships with co-workers and teachers, or even keep a job. Quiet Strength is a reminder to respect others and put our trust in God.
In the article “Want To Get Into College? Learn To Fail” by Angel B. Perez the main idea was that colleges want to know the real you,the imperfect you not the just the great things you’ve accomplished over the year ,but also the failure you had to overcome. The reason why they want to know this is to see if you can overcome failing a class or two just to how you can you handle this, because life is not easy and healthy,family and money sometimes can get in the way of things but the goal is to make you succeed. Another thing I learned that I think is a main point is that parents are the ones pressuring their children to be perfect. So much that they didn 't want their child to take a risk in a class if there was a possibility for failure.
Thinking about my future path I maybe try to think more about Foreign Service work. After healing her, I realized that Foreign Service Officer is a great opportunity and it has many advantages. American system abroad is well build and it takes loyalty and interest in other counties to work in such kind of job. Also, knowing few languages can help in the Foreign Service work, but it is not the most important because they will give education and teach any language that the person wants. Foreign Service takes care for their workers and also for their family.
For many years, a question has been ask trillions of times throughout the homes of families.What are you going to do after High School? Everyday you hear many different answers and bunch of different lectures of what you should and what shouldn’t you do. Having many honorable mentions such as Steve Jobs, Dave Thomas, or Kevin Rose shows that college after high school is not the only option. Four-Year Universities are not practical choice for most Americans students after High School because of the lack of preparation for a college education,Student are pressured that having a college degree is the only way to maintaining a stable financial life , and A college degree doesn 't pay off for years . Recent numbers revealed a glaring gap in the nation 's education system: A high school diploma, no matter how recently earned, doesn 't guarantee that students are prepared for college courses.
Always remind yourself to be on top of your grades and set annual goals. Take advantage of the time spent in class, as usual, you can finish homework if you are on task. There will be a lot of tutoring opportunities if you are struggling with a subject. Also, know your teachers and coaches are there for you. The social life in high school will change drastically over the years.
"Your research paper needs some work, but 9/11 is an interesting topic." The quote as the event of my high school senior year was still stuck in my head as I look back to what I've got on my research paper about 9/11. If someone would tell me this a long time ago that when writing any essay, there are rules to follow in order to not repeat the same mistakes every time I attempt to make a rough draft. Consequently, It has been difficult for me to avoid grammar, spelling, and sentence structure errors. So, I questioned myself, "What it takes to finally be familiar with those rules?"
Although being extremely intelligent suggests that an individual knows how to think doesn’t mean that they know how to choose what to think about. In David Foster Wallace’s commencement speech to college graduates, he explains to them that they must become aware of others and by doing so must learn how to think. Receiving an education doesn’t only include learning subjects such as science or math, but also controlling what and how you think about your everyday life and surroundings. Changing the way you think influences how you view others and the way you experience life. By changing their thoughts to take account of others each individual must go against how they have been thinking their entire lives, only about themselves.
No matter your age, it’s still a difficult feeling to think you are prepared to start a class and realize things are much harder than expected. When I 'm finished with my essay I intend for my audience to understand that taking classes at any age is difficult. A student is a student and peer support is important to get through the day to day struggles associated with tough classes and/or teachers. It 's alright to take comfort in not feeling alone when coping with issues you come across. Communicating with fellow classmates regardless of age, race, or religion can help you cope with these difficulties.
However, the burden of requiring us to make a decision is still unreasonable. It seems as though in addition to the school system, now even parents believe that going straight to college with a career plan is the only option for their kids! Bottom line, there are other ways to have a good life. Making students feel as though these decisions are important is necessary, but we shouldn 't have ridiculous amounts of pressure piled on us to make major life decisions so quickly. I want my years of high school to be filled with exploration and open
In his article, Mark Edmundson discusses an ever increasing problem orbiting around university education– the misconception that studying something that could land you a high paying job trumps studying something that you love for the sole reason that you wouldn’t be able to earn as high as an income with that field of study. Edmundson also brings up the fact that before students get to college, they’re being told who they all their lives. Whether it be by their parents, their teachers, coaches —whoever, by the time most people get to that next step of their lives they don’t have their own definition of who they are. And that’s Edmundson argues what the main point of college is; discovering who you are and what you love. It’s not about preparing
I believe the efforts we do not make in prior life can be mistakes or setbacks for our future goals. At the time, we may lack knowledge which could help us reach goals that we did not know we wanted in prior years. For me, this goal was to be a member of the Incarnate Word High School National Honor Society. I met all but one of the requirements which was to maintain an average of 94 or higher. As a freshman, I thought this was out of reach for me and pointless to work toward so I decided to put NHS out of my sight.
