In the article “48 percent of Millennials think the American dream is dead. Here’s why” by Philip Bump he explains how hard work is a great determining factor as for success, although, “jobs are hard to come by,” the reason many believe the American dream is dead because “student loan debt, which continues to be a massive burden to recent college graduates. The second is waste stagnation.” Those who say the dream is dead due to loan debt, 42% are not or have never been enrolled in college, whereas, 58% of those with a college degree say the dream is alive. Those who do not have loan debt to pay for a higher education argue that debt is holding them back, yet if that money was not used for something to move them up, how can they even say something is dead if they did not work to rise? The mindset of people have a lot to do with the American dream and as for hard work, it’s something that has to be done because without it, nothing much is achievable.
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.
At young ages, the DREAMERS didn’t have any say in the decision to come to the United States or not. Many have never lived in their “home” country long enough to call it their own and they will actually contribute to the U.S. economy. Some say that these illegal immigrants steal jobs and spots at universities from legal Americans. But, they add to the economy with good jobs they could get and good education. The DREAMERS contribute to the workforce just like legal Americans.
The one big thing I learned going into my first year of college was that how much the professors do not really care if you pass or not. Even though there are some that do, there are also a lot that do not. With saying this I am getting at that the Central Minnesota Credit Union does not want to be that professor that does not care, they want to be the exact opposite and show everyone of their strength, service and to help it grow to be an even more prosperous community. By doing this it will leave a huge mark in our lives. Strength: Strength is a huge component in society as in at the Central Minnesota Credit Union.
Many Americans now believe that anyone without a college degree is restricted to low-paying, menial jobs,” (Leef). In the American workforce, having a degree is highly valued, but in some cases, not always necessary. In a lot of instances, people will have a degree, but can not get a job that requires that degree. “A substantial number of college graduates ‘end up taking jobs for which college education is not really a prerequisite,’ making any debt they incurred to get the education essentially a waste, argued Ohio University's Vedder. ‘Twelve percent of the mail carriers in the United States today have college degrees,’” (Clemmit).
College athletes have never been paid, but many people believe that college athletes are already getting paid when they receive full and half ride scholarships. When they receive those scholarships, colleges pay for their room and board, tuition, and books. However, there are athletes that do not even get that. Some athletes have to pay for college out of their own pockets. Plus, it is believed that athletes already receive special treatment.
Professor Kevin from CRJ306 once told me: “do what’s right and enjoy it doing it because that’s what most people don’t have.” I think what he meant was that most people don’t enjoy they work and that is the problem we have in our criminal justice system. I think internship create the better understanding of the job and opens people’s mind to think outside the box while interning. “What you see is what you get”. Whatever happened in the work place, while intern or a regular employee describes the work environment. Professionalize my language is another key component to my
In college those who've grown up receiving endless awards do the requisite work, but don't see the need to do it well . In the office,they still believe that attendance is all it takes to get a promotion.” Participation trophies don't just not motivate kids to work hard they also take away from kids who do work hard and deserve
Many people may argue that the financial burden of college is not worth it, yet paying for college teaches responsibility and accountability. There are many fields in the job industry that doesn’t require a college degree. However, when the facts are presented about why college is important it is very clear the the financial burden of college is worth it. A college education helps shapes the economy into a brighter future. Students who put in the time and effort with paying for college, they find a whole new world that opened up to them with job opportunities.
It doesn't matter what you do. So for me I guess college was just a means to an end. it was just to prove that I could do it and once I proved to myself that I can do it then I was able to prove to employers that I could do it even though it doesn't make me any more money now, if I would have had the right path it would have. I've got tons of friends that make really good money and we have the same degree no different. so for me college it's disappointed me a little bit honestly that my degree hasn’t been able to give me a little bit more money and that I'm not, with my work ethic and my experience that I can't get what I deserve and I honestly feel like I deserve more money now.
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.
In my opinion Dr. Keith Insheep’s “philosophical gold nuggets” is unique to others. His article elaborates the different characters of past and current graduate program by comparing several key elements in graduate life. Even though Dr. Insheep didn’t made any judgement towards the changes, there are several quotable experiences. Firstly, in the past, professors earn more respect from the students. Nowadays, some student keep complain how tired they are and how puss their advisor is, but they have forgotten that the tough road was chosen by themselves.
I felt this university did not care as long as they was getting paid. My major is criminal Justice, majority of the classes that is required to get a degree is repetitive. Therefore, I feel that I have paid this institution for classes that I do not need. I think they should change their requirements to make it more diverse. The students will learn and
Without these numerous factors that vary vastly among different colleges and universities one simply may not assume every student that finances a loan goes into long term debt. College admission may be a hard decision when it comes down to price. Many other students fail to attend their dream school due to the financial struggle. Ultimately there are students that pay the full price for admission no matter what the cost just to attend their dream school. To many students college is worth the price for admission.
The get paid in free education.” This is just a borderline disrespectful statement and the NCAA could have said something completely different and respectful. This is disrespectful because it seems like they are making a joke out of a very controversial topic that more than 460,000 athletes face everyday. Not every athlete comes from a 5 figure background and can count on their parents to help their payments. Most athletes are only in college because of the scholarships they receive and need to make it work on their own. They could be helped by the NCAA with at least a monthly stipend to help with the costs of
