Perez argues that too many students fear failure, when in reality they could grow from failure and become a better candidate for college. Perez’ writing really made me realize how irrational I was for not wanting to go to college because of some failed tests. Just because I failed the AP exams I took, doesn 't necessarily mean I can not get into college. Without this article, I probably would not have chose to go to college to pursue my goals of becoming a teacher. I have chosen the education pathway to suit me best for many reasons.

Further research should be done using the HEIghten method. Since lack of critical thinking skills is seen at the high school level, it would be beneficial to use it as an assessment prior to applying to colleges, perhaps in freshman and sophomore years. Another area of research proposed by the authors is the idea of using motivation prior to giving students the assessment exam. Evidence points to increasing student motivation leads to higher assessment scores. Bashith, A., and Amin, S. (2017).
Some student argue that college writing is very similar to high school writing and that’s why they think it is unnecessary to take a writing class in college. I believe that the students who believe college writing is exactly like high school writing are wrong because writing expectations are different in college. For some students across the U.S. a college writing class is very useless and a waste of time but on the other hand many more student across the nation need to take a writing class due to their poor grammar and subpar communication skills and would greatly benefit from this course. In this nation communication is a major key to being successful because in every job you need to be able to communicate with you peers and coworkers to get a certain task done, so our nation would benefit by making a writing class mandatory. To be given approximately 2 hours per week to primarily focus on writing is extremely beneficial to students because even though many students think college writing is a waste of time in reality it doesn

Ungar’s theory of attending college and earning a degree, is extremely useful because it sheds insight on the difficult problem of many people debating whether or not going to college and earning a degree is the correct decision after graduating college. I agree with Ungar, that graduating high school students should go on and earn a higher education, which is a point that needs emphasizing, since so many people believe that without a college degree they will be successful. High school graduates that have entered the work field after high school graduation, of course, may want to dispute my claim that in order to become successful person you do not need a college education. Many may argue that they have become a successful without a college
Grade inflation is something that people are starting to become more and more worried about throughout student college and their academics within America. Grade inflation is calming that students are receiving higher grades for simpler work or lesser of quality that students are submitting. Basically meaning a B+ in todays colleges would equal a C back when my parents came to college. in the 1980’s. Even though I personally do believe that grade inflation is a real thing within our colleges depending on the institution, I personally do not think it is a major issue or we should be concerned how it effects our businesses and master programs once these students graduate.
People who do not complete high school should at least try to accomplish their GED. Many people think that once you drop out of High school everything will be over, but it will not just because of the fact that we are able to take GED courses. GED is very important because it can get you further than many people think, who knows you can be in one of the top universities in your state. Education is important because is has an impact on people who are looking up to us. For example, I have three little sisters and I want them to see me graduate from both high school and college and I want them to think that they can do the exact same thing as me.

First thing to remember, schools and teachers have been telling high school students to go to college when they’re done with high school for as long as I can remember. But sometimes going to college isn’t the best thing for you if don’t know what you’re going to do or study. But if you know what you want and know what you’re going to study then I find it very beneficial for you. A lot of students who are still in school are uneasy or unsure about going to college because of this bad thing called Debt. Debt has been a big factor in why students and teens don’t attend college after high school.
Graduating college would make most of them proud, but there are some I know who would feel threatened and there would be negative feelings being produced. These feelings and insecurities, even if they are not prominent, would in turn cause many things to go wrong between us. They would focus more on trying to be better than me in order to assert that they are more than capable than on maintaining our friendship. Graduating from college is a sign of moving up in social status, or the progress in doing so, and can generate rivalry. While it could be used to inspire others to attend college, it mainly poses a threat to their pride, and it greatly affects the friendship, as they often turn bitter.

It is admirable that Nemko wants colleges more accountable towards the success of each student entering their campus, but his argument does not seem as if colleges are his target. His argument seems as if it is towards the parents of each individual hoping to get accepted into four-year colleges after high-school. Furthermore, His choice of words creates an image of the author having a one-on-one with every college hopeful’s parent while the hopeful is at the kid’s table listening in. His tone is also undermining, and creates a hierarchy. Those words blame and maintain the status of all disadvantaged students, and categorize them as inferior to all who come from wealthy households.
Are colleges allowing their students to maximize their full academic, social, and emotional potentials? Students’ underlying expectation of college is that it will enhance their skills and abilities, enabling them to create a foundation for success in the world. What if it is creating the opposite effect? Significant populations of college students attend post-secondary education only to face opposition and setback from the lack of care provided by the school. This population consists of students struggling with the internal battle of mental illnesses.
