–contributor of Forbes- says ‘communication can mean the difference between your business succeeding or failing’ what implies that companies are not likely to trade in inner Spain. If unemployment rates are high, the families will not settle in these rural areas. It is kind of a cycle; schools are closing because companies do not produce in the Plateau because there are not good roads to communicate. According to this idea, the lack of infrastructures is causing health, demographic and economic problems in the
Can the pursuit of a higher degree change your life? If you answered no then maybe you would benefit from reading Andrew Braaksma article “Some Lessons from the Assembly Line.” When this article was produced Braaksma used his work to win a contest named Back to School, while he was a junior at the University of Michigan. Braaksma also worked his summers at an automotive plant in southwest Michigan where he learned some valuable lessons not taught in the classroom. Anyone thinking about returning to college or students of any age should understand the importance of higher education because the reality of working for a living is harder than you think, the physical toll’s it can place on the body, and lack of a job security that comes from not having a higher education. Braaksma points out some of the reality of working for a living without a degree can prove to be harder than most people understand.
Certainly, growing up in poverty is a strength I hold dear to my heart. Surely, it was a struggle my parents, myself, and my brothers, however, my challenging past influenced me to be a hard worker, show up to work 15 minutes early, and perform my duties so I can have a job. Lastly, growing up in this financial condition has taught me how to value life instead of personal belongings.
Throughout my life, in moving around from state to state, I 've come to the realization that it has negatively impacted my social life more than I would have assumed. Moving around continuously while still in grade school, promisingly makes it suck to have no choice but to be the new kid every year. Going from school to school has gradually made me socially awkward/picky in making friends because, I become hesitant in making friendships that just may only last for a year rather than it be long-lasting. Consequently, I’ve always thought to myself that I would never gain a lifelong friend that I’d grow to visit often and have a great relationship with after graduating. Though I thought that way often, in my junior year of high school, I seemed
The Retirement Gamble As it is stated in the documentary “America is facing a retirement crisis and the statistics are grim” in other words the future for America’s dream of retiring and having a future after a long period of work and wages is looking to be going downhill and the statistics are depressing. The video asserts that half of Americans today say they can’t afford to save for retirement and nearly one third of the population is next to having no retirement savings at all. This situation is highly oppressive and tragic because we, as individuals, are all going to get to that point, it’s not just the future of the ones that are more prompt to retiring soon, is the future of all of America including ourselves. In the video one young

Quitting school was not a big deal for me until I realize all the effects of quitting would bring to my life. At that time I didn’t care. I plan to marry a few months later after my high school graduation. I was happy at the time. Quitting school was a big mistake because when I went out to look for a job I couldn’t qualify for any of the good positions because of my lack of education.
This interest in world history propelled me to study harder and later into the night so as to avoid disappointing grades. But more importantly I felt a strong connection with my classmates, everyday was a new inside joke and several off-topic discussions and total disruption of the class by one (or more) students. Leaving that class would have been sad, one because I would feel I bailed out while they persevered through the class, but also because through that class I made some of my best friends, and have some of my favorite memories of high school. Honors World History was one of the hardest classes I have taken at Nashoba, and my grades would have probably been better if I had dropped to a lower level, but I continued with this challenging class because I loved my class, the teacher and the material, and because of that class I was able to pursue a variety of classes and
Now the negative view, Since I 'm not close right now with anyone and it is even harder for me to because I live in a small town twenty miles away from Iowa Falls so I may not get close to anybody during my highschool career. Even worse what if nobody really wants to hang out with me just because I am that small ninth grader that likes things that a lot of other high schoolers may
Same as any other regular students who decided to go to college and committed to excellence, I also wish for a bright future. However, there are many obstacles along the way. Before I came to America, I had never thought about college because my family could not afford for me to attend. My dad passed away when I was eight years old, and my mom has been struggling in supporting the family. It became worse around the year of 2006-2007 when my mom’s business had a major financial difficulty.
What is a skills gap you might ask, a skills gap is not having the ability to fill the in demand jobs. The ability to get a job right out of college is higher for a trade job then a office job because there is less demand at a office job because of the overflow of people applying for the job. A skills gap is where there are not enough workers for in demand jobs. The problem with the skills gap as it is is that in a few years there will be literally 8 million job openings that need to be filled and no one with the proper knowledge or training to fill the jobs needed. With the risk of not being able to get a job out of college is it really worth risking being tens of thousands of dollars in debt and not being able to get placed into a job?
“There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.”- Zig Ziglar. In the book The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt Holling Hoodhoods (the central character in this novel) dad does not want Heather (Hollings sister) to go to college. I think everyone needs and should go to college. Many people say this today, and multitudes of people are homeless because of this.
Schools shouldn’t adopt a year-long calendar because the numerous breaks will disrupt student’s learning and planning family trips during the summer time will become a challenge. To begin with, the numerous days off during the school year will unsettle kids’ focus and behavior. In the article “Summer: 15 days or 2 ½ Months?” the author states, “Most year-round schools schedules use the 45-15 method: 45 days of school followed by 15 days off. Because

While in the great depression, you either stayed in the class you were in before the market crashed throughout this crisis, or you suffered and went down a social class then became poverty stricken. There was no ‘coming up from the bottom’ in the great depression. If you were a bindlestiff, you remain so.The American dream was ultimately a pipe dream for bindlestiffs, it was too good to be true. With being in need of a job all the time and not being able to make money, no bindlestiff was ever able to achieve this dream. There wasn’t enough money going into the economic cycle to stimulate it and keep it healthy.
