Through the use of statistics and contrasting features, Keith Ellison argues that college tuition should be free and accessible to all. Logically, Ellison utilizes statistics to convince the audience by eliminating the student loan debt would significantly help many low-income graduates. Along with statistics, Ellison presents contrasting features to persuade the audience that building a truly affordable higher education system is an investment that would pay off economically. In contrast to education, the nation spends billions of dollars on the gas and oil industry. Ellison argues the money should be going towards education, so we can afford to pay for higher public education.
“The benefits of obtaining a higher education can result in lower unemployment rates; lower poverty rates; increased contributions to tax bases; decreased dependency on social assistance; and healthier lifestyles. Given these societal and personal benefits, funding education at all levels must become a priority” (Ikpa 470). More students would be able to go on to get a higher education if they received an adequate high school education. This would in return help the state bring in more money. Hopefully, it would also lessen the number of low income neighborhoods.
The controversial idea of praying in schools is detrimental to the school environment because it could cause arguments, it would have to be inclusive to all religions, and it would not consider the interests of non-religious students. Praying in schools is controversial because it causes a conflict between religious and non religious students.Prayer in schools can interfere with the environment for people who have a different religion than others. It can bother people who do not have a religion and it causes fights and controversy. If a person did have prayer in schools it would have to involve every religion. Prayer is part
Pro-choice supporters believe that choice is vital to our market economy (Iacono, 2015). Corey Iacono, in his article 3 Reasons to Support School Choice, states his belief that school choice not only saves taxpayers money but results in increased academic outcomes, diminishes racial segregation while aiding the underprivileged, and increases the quality of the public school (Iacono, 2015). However, while claiming there is evidence of better success for students who go to other schools and that it is financially good for the public system, he does not actually document or reference those studies. Some opponents of school choice are accused of fearing competition. By having the option of choice, schools are thrown into a competitive environment (Iacono, 2015).
The goal of the tuition cap is to streamline the education financial process, rather than taking it away. Tuition caps should not create artificially low prices in the education market, but there needs to be extra pressure on colleges to contain costs; which there’s not right now. Requiring colleges to stay under the cap can help control the increasing prices of education, as the continual receival of federal funding and tax exemptions can be used as an incentive for those colleges who comply. Furthermore, tuition and fees have grown more than twice the rate of inflation each year (Wolfram, 2005). If colleges and universities choose to increase tuition cost more than the CPI, not only should they lose federal funding and tax exemptions, but also it should be mandatory for them to use money from their endowments to fully fund grants for students on financial aid; instead of the federal government increasing the Pell grant each award year to make up that extra
Prayer Should Be Allowed In Schools Most people believe that prayer is a waste of time, and should not be allowed in school. Even though religions are diverse, prayer should be allowed, or at least an option. Prayer should be allowed in schools because not everyone who wants to go to a religious school can, those who believe in God should be able to freely worship in school, and people accuse prayer of being controversial, when teachings such as evolution and global warming are controversial. Prayer should be allowed in school because not everyone can afford to pay the pricey fees of religious schools. Religious schools are very expensive.
It is the school 's responsibility to maintain an environment open to diversity and enforcing dress codes does not help with that. If a school’s dress codes are making the students wear a uniform then that makes it harder on the parents because they have to make the expensive purchase of the uniforms. There are few benefits of school dress codes but they do not have the right to enforce what the students wear especially when they force them to buy expensive uniforms to wear in order to help the self esteem of the students. Therefore schools should be more lenient on the dress codes and let them wear what they want to an extent but some shirts can get a little out of hand with what they say on
Do you think that schools should pay students for good grades? Well, I do not think so and here are many reasons why. Schools cannot just give money to students for good grades. Students should be willing to get good grades because they want to get into a good college, into a good job, and make money on their own. Paying students for good grades can lead to problems in the classrooms.
It is harms students in a way of their education and scholarship. It is harmful to society by producing students fellowship with others who are not ready to function as democratic citizens and participants in a modern economy. As well as harm to public education by making it more difficult for some parents to educate their children(“Brookings”). Student Learning. The very nature of homeschooling makes it difficult to quantify student performance.
This reform in food stamps would get people off the streets and working. It would save millions of dollars. Also, there needs to be a major education reform budgetwise. Public schools should be abolished and the government should just give people a certain amount of money and they can choose which school to use it on. Education should be left to the private sector because they do it best.
