Throughout the duration of Crisis No. 1., Paine knew how to appeal to the colonists in just the right way, and used that to his advantage. Paine played a crucial role in persuading the colonists to go to war with Britain; and some might even say that the gaining of America’s independence would not have happened without him. Thomas Paine knew that America not only needed their independence, but deserved it as well. “Not a place upon earth might be so happy as America”
In the heated discussion of college education, one controversial issue has been if the Pell Grant program for inmates would be beneficial as a whole. On the one hand, many in congress argues that a college degree will reduce the recidivism of inmates. On the other hand, some college students contend that it will reduce the amount of aid they get from Pell Grant. My own view is that there should be very strict criteria and that only a small percentage per year be given this great opportunity to receive a college education. Every semester, there are an abundant number of students who apply for Pell Grant to assist them with the costs of college.
According to Storms, the core problem for graduating college students is debt. In the article, Storms explains how we are told that having a bachelor’s degree will double a person 's earning. Even though this may or may not be true, there is still the fear of paying back student loans after graduation. It is obvious that not every degree is guaranteed a job straight out of college in the field one chooses. Storms also gives the story of his family using the fear of debt as an excuse to not to go to college.
The programs created by Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society aimed to improve the country by eradicating poverty and social injustice. The education system contributes to systematic oppression. A good education is crucial to gaining success in the United States; education is also very expensive and not always accessible to those who cannot afford it. With Ⅳ titles, the Higher Education Act (HEA) was established in September of 1965 as the first solution to the issue of accessibility. It provided the federal scholarships and started programs like Upward Bound and Talent Search to find needy students and give them the scholarships they required in order to attend a college or university.
Americans owe nearly $1.3 trillion in student loan debt, spread out among about 44 million borrowers (U.S. Student Loan Debt…). This is a very problematic topic in the U.S. today that needs to be solved with a carefully thought out analyzed plan. It is unnecessary for one to be in debt from schooling just to get a job to make money. College is supposed to help give a job that pays enough money to be financially stable and make monthly payments for student loans not put people in debt from paying so much money back.
Our military gets paid from tax income of the country. The United States gets $3.7 trillion in income tax. If you divided that among all the soldiers and pay them what pros get paid, this is how much it would be. It would be 7.8063324e+12, that 's a lot. My main three reasons for thinking pros should get paid more than soldiers are not enough money, just as much training, and they get paid from different sources.
“In May of the year 2014, 98 college underclassmen made themselves eligible for the NFL Draft” (Borden). Why such a rush to get out of college the reason is the money. Many people believe that college athletes should be compensated for the money they bring to schools. College is not to make money now, it is to get a degree so you can make money later. Student athletes should not be paid for their athletic performance because it would result in the loss of amateur sports.
Compulsory voting has proven to better represent the young, poor, and minorities who tend not to vote. However, it is not cost effective. The labor involved and the cost to pay for the jurisdiction and congressmen to pass it is extremely high. America would lose more money a year on this system and further drive down already struggling sectors such as social security and education by being forced to draw even more of their finds a way. As it stands now the concept is not constitutional, an altar to the first and twenty-fourth amendments would be required at least, and that would still not guarantee it to pass.
What is a person willing to sacrifice in order to have the prestige to be called a Sailor? In an America where job opportunities seem to be scarce; where the idea of having student loans discourage people from obtaining a higher education; and high medical premiums force people to wait until the brink of death before gaining the courage to step into a money sucking corporation known as a Hospital, thousands of Americans are opting for the military way. But how to blame our future warriors? Nowadays, TV commercials are filled with military propaganda with catchy phrases such as “Accelerate Your Life” and “A Global Force for Good.” Who can say no to that? But before seeing a recruiter, consider the following: Imagine getting a new job as a teacher at a local high school.
A subject that should be brought to your attention is the issue of student debt. This is a problem that affects over 40 million Americans, certainly enough people to draw your attention. While scholarships are made available, it certainly isn’t enough considering the fact that the average Class of 2016 graduate has managed to accumulated $37,172 in student loan debt. Personally, as a future attendee of college, these facts are startling. Having not come from a wealthy family, as many other Americans do, I wonder, what can we do to fix this issue?
