So, if you believe that college should not be free because this would make students irresponsible and they would fool around as they do in high school and this is wrong. Because when college tuition becomes free there will be rules to make sure that the students work hard and take it seriously and handle the responsibilities. Free college would definitely help you in your life. It is mandatory for success. Yes some students do not take school seriously and that is why college should be free for students who do take school seriously.
Writer Sawhill states that “we are not able to predict which college degrees can give you the highest net benefit based upon your unique strengths, weaknesses and interest.” Sawhill is correct about not being able to predict the best degree because, as she may not be aware, of the resources and assessments at Colleges and Universities that help you layout the key dimensions to be successful in school. IS COLLEGE THE BEST OPTION? 4 The final point is policy implications. The writers argue that it is a big mistake to tell students that are preparing for college that college is the best decision they can make, and I agree. It is important to insure that you are attending the college that best fits your educational needs.
For example, Fridman could provide data about scholarships and other types of funding for sports and other activities. The author also mentioned that such negative attitude to smart citizens is not common for other developed countries. While he named the region, “in East Asia, a kid who studies hard is lauded and held up as an example to other students” (Fridman), he did not provide more detailed information, like results of surveys or funding statistics of the foreign universities. It is also possible to question this argument, at least in respect of the past. It is difficult to provide a source, but there was a joke that said “the intellectual is a kind of an insult” in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and some of its
Echo-Hawk wrote a pretty strong argument in favor of educating non-indigenous peoples today and explaining why colonialism in current American legislation is hindering Native American life in the United States. His sources back up his multiple arguments, leaving the reader with an enhanced understanding. What confused me was how he seemed to very strongly want reform in American policies concerning Native Americans, yet he believed that if the United States adopted the United Nation’s minimum standards for the treatment of Indigenous peoples, that it would Native Americans lives so much better. Maybe I don’t know enough about the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, but expressing only wanting the “minimum” amount of consideration seems a bit counterintuitive after describing all the horrors indigenous people have been through and all the struggles they have faced with the current
In Marty Nemko’s essay, “We Send Too Many Students to College,” I thought he presented his argument about how a college degree does not necessarily mean that you will succeed in life in a subtle yet smart way by utilizing a personal connection with the subject of his essay. Or as Aristotle explained in The Art of Rhetoric, the appeal to authority (Ethos). Additionally, I thought his incorporation of the two stories about the individuals who obtained their degrees, but could find a job with their aforementioned degrees was a very honest way of descripting what I believe is happening in today’s educational institution. However, I do have to refute Nemko’s appeal to authority (Pathos) towards the end when he lists off numerous figures that have
However, she fails to examine the reasons student loans can be advantageous, and this is problematic because there are several missing benefits including manageable reimbursement options, lower interest rates, as well as student friendly terms and conditions when compared to a standard loan. To begin, the author impressively outlines a logical reason as to why society should be liable for funding higher education. In her essay she
Ultimately, ethnic studies promote American ideals, create identity, and only create contempt when being constrained from these courses. Ethnic studies should be implemented in schools, because they promote American ideals of diversity, inclusion, and freedom. In a place like America, where diversity is supposed to be the building block of our nation, one would think that different ethnic groups would have the right to study their own identity. Students question this in the film and make claims such as, “Education is so against me that they don’t want me.” Evidently, with the threat of abolishing ethnic studies courses, students feel a lack of inclusion, which defies American values. Other violations of American
If Kathleen, or any of the Godfrey’s were to visit New Mexico they would see reservations as a justice because they were not deserving of an existence as the ancient people. Natives would righteously be put away from society because they were not as peaceful or civilized. Or Natives would need be assimilated until they were more like the ancient people, or more American. Tom’s stories leave a big mess for Natives to clear up. Because of stories like his, they need to vindicate themselves from falsehoods of savagery found in his story.
In the articles “Stop Scaring Students” by Devorah Lieberman and “College Is a Waste of Time and Money” by Caroline Bird, the authors debate the value of college education. This topic is vital to a college student's success because the articles may help mold their decisions. While Lieberman and Bird’s opinions may differ, they share a common interest- to educate students on their options after high school. In “Stop Scaring Students”, Devorah Lieberman argues that a college education is still a valuable investment in today’s world. First, Lieberman accuses some news agencies of “short sighted reporting”, meaning that these news outlets are only giving one side of the overall story, which intimidates potential college students.
Everyone has different morals, but, when the morals of right and wrong clash with how your heart feels about a situation, it’s best to go with how your heart feels. The men live in a completely different world than we do now, and honestly, I think that is one of the biggest factors of why I believe he made the right choice. If everyone still saw things as black and white I would most likely have a completely different point of view on this situation. George basically saw his past repeat itself when he found out Lennie harmed “another” woman. It is better to be safe than sorry, if George wouldn’t have been there for him to make the unthinkable decision to end his life, he most likely would have ended up being tortured and hated on by everyone around
What happens when it 's not executed well? I guess I 'm accustomed to more bullish claims from executives of for-profit colleges. I don 't recall any of them saying, "We face powerful short-term incentives to shortchange students, but if we can resist those and manage to implement our model well over the long term we might find that the incentives exist for more student learning." Perhaps I should find Rosen 's honesty refreshing, but it 's just scary that he doesn 't realize how bad his descriptions sound. To wit: "The vast majority of the players in for-profit education work very hard to avoid succumbing to these short-term temptations."
However, this wasn’t a wise or fair way to do this. Instead, this method is just creating more bad blood between the movement leaders and Native Americans. The leaders could have slowly introduced Native Americans into modern society. Perhaps giving them some rights that made them feel a part of the United States, instead of complete outsiders, which is what the Dawes Act accomplished. I feel like the act was very unjust and shouldn’t have occurred.
By committing action the idea of justice becomes more problematic. Medea 's attempt to seek justice leads to a deeper injustice, and the conflicts of justice and natural law is revealed to be unattainable. Thus, even as Euripides identifies the injustice of gender roles, he also declines to blame external forces for all displays of evil actions. Ultimately it was Medea’s choice to kill her children but Euripides shows that striving for social injustice can become an excuse for the loss of
Therefore, people may see going against an unjust law as something to avoid because of the aftereffect they will be having to face. Furthermore, It is right to oppose something that is unjust. Individuals should do what they best believe is right in their opinions but laws shouldn’t be fully subjected by the people only or else it may lead to future conflicts and misleading mistakes. Overall, by desired changes, it causes destructive tension for
