According to Henry Bienan, PhD, President of northwestern claims that a college education brings greater productivity, lower crime and better health for more educated people. A study that was done in 2009 discovered that 16 to 24 year old's that are secondary school drop outs have 63% higher opportunity to be detained than those with four year college education or higher. This effects society adversely . Also the Bureau of Labor Statistics stated that from September 2008-09, 43% of college graduates did volunteer work were as only 19% of high school graduates. This in all proves the point that college graduates are vital and more productive members of society and should be given free tuition.
As of 2015, 45% of students graduated college, while 31% did not, and another 12% are still enrolled. The remaining 12% transferred to other colleges. The United States is in 13th place when accounting for students graduating college. This is simply dismal and for a world power is unacceptable. Our public education system receives funding from multiple sources, but overall roughly $12,000 is allocated for each student each year.
College debt is developing into an immense issue in the United States with about 1.3 trillion dollars worth of college debt across the country in 2015, which is about a 39% increase since 2011 (Redd, 2016; Goldrick-Rab and Kendall, 2014). This debt is not just piled on a small portion of people; according to Redd, “about 10 million college students took out student loans” in the 2012-2013 school year (2016). The average tuition at in
Moreover, the college completion rates of Latinos are considerably lower than those of most other ethnic groups: according to the U.S. Department of Education “in 2010, among Hispanic 25- to 29-year-olds, 14 percent had earned a bachelor's degree or higher, compared with 19 percent for African-Americans, 39 percent for whites, and 53 percent for Asian-Americans” (qtd. in Maxwell 2) (!). For all other minority groups, the percentage of college degree holders has increased significantly over the past decade, yet for Latinos it has not increased for more than two decades (Gándara, Contreras 10). The fact that Latinos are not only the fastest-growing ethnic minority but also “the most undereducated major population group in the country” (Gándara, Contreras 18) should illustrate once more how much Latino education matters to everyone.
From the time of mid-1980s, education has made its part largely in potential earnings, with bachelor's qualification holders taking home a normal of 66% more than those with only a high school degree do. At the same time as college educated workers' salary have been greater than before over the past twenty years, those with only a high school schooling have seen decline in yearly salaries in the same era. According to a research Adults with higher degrees earn four times additional than those with less than a high school degree. Employees 18 years and older with a master’s or a PHD degree make money an average of $82,320 in 2006, at the same time as those with less than a high school degree received $20,873. Finishing college is a great deal.
Les Christie state 's “ Student loan debt has caused an 8% decline in home purchases among americans ages 20 to 39.” This shows that student loan debt holds back a lot of money from the housing market. “Palacios figures that for every $250 a month in a student loan debt that a household owes, it reduces their power to purchase a home by $44,000.” These quotes from Les Christie explain how the money from the housing market has been held back from the student loan debt. Any student in college can get a student loan and that is why it stacks up a bunch of debt.
During the same period, I know of my friends that decide to continue their education by enrolling in a university and work to complete a Bachelor’s Degree to obtain a job in their specific field. From my experience and perspective, attending a two year college surpass to a university due to tuition and class size.
One of the biggest agricultural clubs in america is FFA. FFA stands for “Future Farmers of America” and is funded through sponsorships and individual donations. Other options may be colleges. A great local college that is great in the agricultural industry is Purdue University’s college of agriculture. “It is one of the world’s leading colleges of agricultural, food, life, and natural resource sciences.”
Records indicate that the rate of unemployment among the youth stands at an alarming level as the rate of employment among the younger generation [16 – 24 years age] has turned out three times slower than the other age group when it comes to employment, since 1992. A research from the House of Commons library indicates that there 498,000 youth jobless in the said age group of which around 8,000 unemployed added over the last quarter. According to a study by Office of National Statistics, the current rate of unemployment is 14.4% and the overall unemployment rate is counted to 5.7% calculated based upon the total working population. Furthermore, even for those younger generation who have managed to get a job, the rate of average wage received is around £1,800 per annum, the worst rate received by the youth than last five years.
Source: National Agency for Integrity The number of inspectors decreased in 2010 and 2011 to almost 60% from the original start in 2008. It is a worrying fact if we consider that 2012 has been an electoral year, with two elections (local and parliamentary). As a comparison, the figures went down from 53 in 2008, also an electoral year, to 35 in 2012.
The fraction of incoming college freshmen surveyed annually by the Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) at UCLA who reported that “becoming successful in a business of my own” was “essential” or “very important” to them declined from 52.1 percent in 1988 to 41.0 percent in 2004. In fact, between 2004 and 2012, when student loan levels took off, the fraction of people interested in being successful at business ownership actually increased slightly to 41.2 percent. Similarly, the fraction of students who told the UCLA researchers that entrepreneurship was their intended profession declined from 3.9 percent in 1988 to 3.3 percent in 2004. (The fraction declined to 2.9 percent by 2013). Before the policy makers and pundits conclude that the rise in student loans is the cause of the decline in rates of entrepreneurship among millennials – and decide that debt relief is the way to boost entrepreneurial activity among young people today – they should consider that waning interest in entrepreneurship predates the student loan crisis by many
Currently there are only 1,520 Hispanics out of 24,146 students attending K-State. To become a national model in multiculturalism K-State promote the recruiting and retention of Hispanics and other minority/multicultural groups (both currently accounting for only 15% of the student population) as they are under-represented in the institution. In addition, the State of Kansas reported a high school graduation rate for Black (75%), Hispanics (77%) and Whites (88%) for the years 2011-12. K-State is adapting the curriculum and adding new courses, encouraging multicultural content on existing courses, offering of scholarships to attract all the Kansas high school graduates not only White graduates. The implementation of the use of culturally competent teaching techniques promoting diversity and multiculturalism teaching practices is discussed in the Final Office of Diversity K-State 2025 Strategic Action and Alignment Plan document dated February
Catlin has increased the scope to include more students from other states with 40% living on campus and 60% of the faculty earned doctorate degrees and 75% held terminal qualifications by 1990. The decrease in population, high school graduates, and the financial stability of Zenith are cause for concern.
My second reasoning for changing the funding and time a person can use it is to make it more beneficial to those who have it. Obviously, the program isn’t for everyone and was meant for only the ones that needed the extra incentive and help for college. By limiting the amount of people using it to lower incomes and increasing the amount given has been shown to not only increase graduation rate but enrollment rates as well. Along with this putting a cap on it after four years is better in many ways. First this allows it to be able to more of an incentive to graduate on time for any given program.
Out of the 20 million Americans who attend college each year, 60 percent take out loans to help pay for their education. Federal loans stay with students until they are fully paid off, even if students declare bankruptcy. (Karas) College costs today are rising faster than what we can process. Along with student debt interest. According to Minsun Mikyong Kim and Jangwan Ko, “the college tuition rate has increased about 103.8, whereas average household income has increased only 39.3%.
