In his argument, “Forgive Student Loans? Worst Idea Ever” mentioned how the importance of college student loans should be paid off. Due to the amount of irresponsibility that may happen. Believing if students were not to pay student loans, they would waste an amount of money per year, an amount that will increase. Together, the two debates profound sufficient information, to catch their audience attention, but only one debate had the enough statistics to prove it’s point.
The cost of college tuition is an enormous problem now days. For a long time, the subject never got brought up and today things are changing. Students study hard and try their best to get that college acceptance letter from their dream college. Students all around the world are struggling with college debt and trying their hardest to receive those so-called ‘perfect’ grades. However, college tuition is not very affordable and is increasing every year.
College is where one should gain the education to succeed in life. Some may attend college, but because they're getting paid to play sports, learn nothing and consequently suffer when the real world hits them on graduation day, and their sports career doesn't pan out, or is derailed
A student might have to drop out and get a job to provide for younger siblings or a parent. This would be an understandable reason to not continue college, but is very specific to certain people or families. Another personal case of why an individual would drop out is college is it is just not the right fit for their life. College does teach valuable life skills and provides an advanced education for those who need it, yet some professions do not require a degree. If a student is not getting valuable instruction for what they want to do, it would be the smart thing to back out and peruse an apprenticeship for example.
College athletes sometimes have criminal records, but the NCAA doesn’t check them. Viliseni Fauonuku, a college athlete was one of his coach’s favorite players, but he had been arrested for two felony accounts for robbery. Yet Viliseni was offered multiple scholarships by the universities, despite his violent background. In great contrast, normal students have to go through rigorous background checks to get scholarships. This encourages athletes to break the law.
Recent numbers revealed a glaring gap in the nation 's education system: A high school diploma, no matter how recently earned, doesn 't guarantee that students are prepared for college courses. After High School students who tend to lean more to college often fear if there smart enough for college.It doesn’t matter whether students are heading to large public universities, small elite private colleges, or somewhere else. They wonder if they are smart enough to continue the
The increasing rate in which students are dropping out of college is alarming, because it will affect our society in the long term, as the students of today are the employees of tomorrow. Governments need to address this issue, because everyone’s future lies in the hands of teenagers. They need to find a solution to the increased prices in colleges relative to people’s earnings. Years ago, attending college may have been only for the people who were well off, but today having a bachelors degree holds the same value as a high school certificate did years ago. Teenagers’ aswell need to understand that attaining a bachelor’s degree is key for getting a well-paid job later on.
I didn’t expect that anything like what happened would happen. I thought it was going to end up with the narrator going to college and becoming something of himself with his speech skills but that’s not what happened. Now that I realize, when the narrator had a dream about the scholarship saying to keep him running actually played out. The narrator went to college and literally he was assigned to a wealthy white trustee to drive him around. After a mistake, the narrator has to go to New York but with a bad report so this just shows how they really want the narrator to just keep running.
Because contextual explanations define the behaviors of everybody, I would like to explain the reason why I intend to study in law school after my time here at Penn State. I certainly have not always been interested in law, especially before my senior year of high school. In fact, I had friends, as well as one teacher, who told me that this idea would be a terrible fit for my personality and that I should just scrap it. What these people failed to realize, however, is that I want to do this for so much more than a high salary, great benefits, or prestige that comes with having a Juris Doctor; I want to do this for others. The two factors that really led to this decision are 1. my family situation as a child, and 2. the best friend that I’ve made since I’ve been at school.
Why Collegiate Athletes Should Not Be Paid Annually the NCAA as a whole brings in approximately six billion dollars, yet the people generating the income are not making a dime? In the United States collegiate sporting events are a massive industry but the players do not receive an income because they are technically amateurs. Is it time to start paying college athletes? Or should players continue to be rewarded in free education? Many believe it is absurd to still consider the NCAA amateur sports after all it has become but just as many think the exact opposite and that college athletes already receive fair compensation for their participation.
First of all, in Kohn’s essay, after the students gained admission into colleges their mindset of pursing traditional rewards only continued as now they were now worried about finding jobs instead of improving grades. For instance, Kohn writes that, students in university would “scan the catalogue for college courses that promised easy A’s… They’d define themselves as pre-med, pre-law, pre- business… nose stuck into the future, ever more frantic…until, perhaps, they might wake up one night in a tastefully appointed bedroom to discover their lives were mostly gone” (Paragraph,8). Even with the acceptance into universities, students still are not satisfied with their lives, justifies chasing accolades as a repeating cycle. Secondly, in Barwick’s essay, pursing only the tangible reward becomes Mr. Burns’s long term problem while discarding anything else that comes in his way. For example, during the bowling game “winning the worthless bowling trophy is more important to him than the sweet, albeit momentary, pleasure of a group of jocular friends [brings to a person] and in the end everything turns out to bore him” (Paragraph, 4).
Yet whenever I’d tell someone that, their bright smiles would always falter slightly as the same variety of questions would spill from their lips. “So you want to write for a living?” “What kind of income would that bring?” “Wouldn’t you have to write a best seller to make any type of money?” Questions such as these are the reason I’ve always felt uneasy about telling people what I planned on studying in college, especially my grandpa. He said I should major in Business, like my mom. Or Medicine, like my aunt. Fields of study that actually could land me a decent paying job after college.
American teens My life compared to the Americans in the documentary is totally reversed compared to theirs. For starters, my parents hopefully don 't expect anything from me at all, only that I get through high school and get a job. They wouldn’t say that I wasn’t special just because my grades were above average but not #topoftheclass grades, they would instead encourage me to try harder in a good way I think. Then the Americans always have a pressure built up on them, for if they don’t get through high school and don 't get into college they would be nobodies and society would think of them as losers and failures. I don’t think that anybody would think of me a failure just because I didn’t pass school, they would probably start to think
Many of the world’s richest and most successful people didn’t even graduate from high school let alone make it to college. Now I’m not implying that I don’t want to attend college because that is not true, I would most certainly love to go to college but not everybody is blessed with the same opportunities.
