He believed that lack of education was the root of all the Pakistan’s problems. Ignorance allowed politicians to fool people and bad administrators to be reelected. He believed schooling should be available for all, rich and poor, boys and girls” (41). Malala illustrates that government deprives people from education for a main reason; making their citizens ignorant. By being ignorant, governments are able to dictate what they want their citizens to believe.
Regardless, many people around the globe such as scholars, diplomats believe that their harsh policies particularly against people like the Professor Tohti will only lead more conflict and create more Uighur radicals. Professor Tohti had been assigned an ascribed status by the culture he was born to, but unfortunately the government is taking advantage of that while Professor Tohti just wanted separation from them, so they could be on equal ground in a peaceful just society. This article is applicable to Social Problems by showing, and giving examples of social disorganization, and even conflict perspective such as how the Xinjiang officials are trying to fight off the insurgencies, and while doing so trying to suppress different ethnic groups, and those who voice out the injustices of their
Cost of education is such a trying challenge to this population that most drop out, have break downs trying to cover the cost, or nearly kill themselves working as much as possible. Previous college generations this was not such a problem, for one could hold a part time job and pay for school, but now one can work part time and barely cover groceries. While most young people do worry about money, college students worry with several thousand dollars of tuition also staring them in the
A free college education in universities and community colleges will leave graduates debt free and fuel the economy. There are many people with more intelligent minds than students in Harvard, but students of Harvard have rich parents who can get them the best possible education. People would rather not go to college than face student loans their entire life. Making a college education free will not make a degree less valuable because the value of something does not just come from how much money it costs. If someone has a degree, regardless of how much they pay for it, it has the value of education itself.
Colleges are considered viable establishments for preparing students for jobs after their education career ends. However, they are not doing an optimal job in ensuring that students are obtaining the best education they can get. There is no pull or motivation factor to capture students’ attention within a large class. The most pivotal part of college is implementing what was learned throughout its duration, and applying it to a future career.
Every semester, there are an abundant number of students who apply for Pell Grant to assist them with the costs of college. Sometimes, students will not meet the financial criteria because their parent’s income is a bit too high or because of other financial factors that they will not qualify. Thus, it puts a student in a situation where they will take out student loans, that they’ll be paying for many years. Clearly, the result of being someone who has not committed a crime and works to pay for their own education, is the one that pays the ultimate price. Yet, congress wants to financially grant prison inmates a free education, while exemplary citizens are denied.
“The price tag on college makes frequent headlines, but the price tag on shortfalls in participation and success in higher education does not(Baum 5). Getting a degree will help students find a good career after they graduate. When students achieve their degree jobs they apply for are more willing to pay them a higher salary. Going to college gives students excellent social skills and health benefits for themselves. Many people say that college is a swindle and foolish, but when going and graduating from college provides no struggles in finding a career, high-paying salaries, along with health and social benefits people need to look more into going.
Since a new president will be taking office soon, topics such as tuition-free colleges need to be addressed. Tuition-free colleges are not discussed widely enough for the government to see the financial struggles of ethnic minorities university students. While the study needs to be further conducted, there has been progress as to how these students feel and are able to cope with the tuition rates so far. However, some more questions need to be asked such as, do you feel the political candidates running for president are taking an interest in college students and tuition rates? From the current participant observation, majority of the students work to support themselves financially in college, so what else is there that they struggle economically
Albert Einstein once said, “The value of a college education is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think.” This statement applies today more than ever. In a society where technology is rapidly expanding, it is almost impossible to do well in life by relying solely on the facts you learned in school. People must continue learning and figuring things out by themselves while having to deal with new technological advancements coming out all the time. In today's society, a college education is necessary in order to secure a good paying job.
Because some companies are specifically looking for college graduates for their new employees, students automatically assume that college education is required to be financially stable in the future. In the human society, money is important, and is necessary. People do work because not only they need money in order to live but also most people's life goals are to make enough money to spend for some luxury, or for their children. That is why being a millionaire is considered as a success by people. They have achieved most people's life goal: being rich and not worrying about money.
He explains the students aren’t hired to play the sport and they are going to a college to receive an education (95). He points out that student athletes tend to choose a school based on their past success in a particular sport and paying them would result in the students making profit on their past success (99). This is a great example why the paying process would be problematic. Since the title IX federal regulations are required, the payment for female and male athletes would have to be equal and not discriminate females (97). Meshefejian states “ The college experience, a student-athlete’s educational experience should be about more than just dollars and cents”
In the article it talks about how college does not prepare you for work life but college teaches how to do a specific job. I agree with Harbowski statement because in today’s world of work many companies require you to have a degree, whether it is a bachelor’s degree or a Master’s degree. It is true that not all jobs require you to have a degree but, the jobs that do not require a college degree are also the jobs that are more likely to lay those off who do not have a college but do obtain a high school diploma. Others may say that you can make a good living working at job with only a high school diploma. Although, that may be true studies have also shown that you have to work harder than others to get to that comfortable living place and college graduates are much more likely to be employed and earn more than those with a high school diploma.
It is clear that Andrew Rosen, the chief executive of Kaplan, wants to leave readers of Change.edu with the idea that for-profit colleges are innovative, efficient, and effective in serving people left out by traditional higher education, and that their bad reputation is the result of unfair attacks. I picked up Rosen 's book wanting to see how the power of the market can transform the enterprise and improve student learning. Instead, I am now more concerned about the hazards of for-profit colleges than I was before. The eye-opening, gasp-inducing elements involve Rosen 's descriptions of the intense pressures on company executives to produce quick, huge profits for investors by shortchanging students.
In Charles Murray’s essay “Are Too Many People Going to College,” he believes that the concept of college has changed over the years. According to him, a four-year college is no longer as necessary as it was when it was first created because most jobs requires more on job training. He also adds to his reasoning by mentioning that because of the advancement of internet, physical libraries and the physical proximity of student and teachers is less important. Because of the changes he noticed he believes that people should go to college but not for liberal education. He makes the claim that the basic core knowledge of liberal education should be learned in elementary and middle school and that only people with high academic abilities should be encouraged to go to college.
