Recently, a great deal of attention has been paid on the increase of popularity of gap year because there are a few people who choose to take a gap year which means delaying college while most people go straight to college. Therefore, there is a growing controversy over whether high school should delay college until they have a clear idea of their career goals. Some people state that high school students had better take a gap year to expand their horizons and to experience such a rare opportunity. They think it can definitely be beneficial to one’s personal growth because it helps them decide what they really want to do. However, there are some opponents who disagree with the above perspectives.
He pointed out Mr. Cathey consistent bombardments of challenges and how he handle each situation. Every good point in his life such as becoming a father was met with a bad point in which he couldn’t go to school because he became a father. The author allowed us to feel happy for the situations that seemed any reasonable person would feel good about and upset about the unforeseen variables that tend to find Mr. Cathey. The author makes sure you feel the joy and pain of a young man who could have made it to a higher level but came up short because of his bad decision

More than anything Patton wanted to do well at West Point. He spent many hours studying and even sometimes got up before dawn to study even more. It was hard for Patton to watch other students study less and do better than he did. His superiors did appreciate however his drive to succeed and his performance during drills. With that, they gave him permission to repeat his first year over again.
The instant I got to high school I was hit by the reality bus, I actually had to work for a grade. For the first few weeks I was in awe with all the work I was receiving, but I got the hang of it and started loving school again. I know all the hard-work is going to kill me, but it will be worth it, even if it does not work out perfectly. Furthermore, what do I think of all these expectations? To be honest they are all achievable with hard-work, and I am ready to do just that.
However, if college wasn’t free the people who went to college would truly want to go and further their education. The students would work hard to get accepted to college and work even harder to stay in college. “ This is the first step toward helping these hard-working and ambitious students, eager to make a better life for themselves and their families.”(the biggest misconception) When colleges offer full ride scholarships for athletes they are giving that student a free education.

Upton Sinclair 's, The Jungle, is set in the early 1900’s and tells the story of Jurgis, the main character, who has much trouble in succeeding the tasks he promises to fulfill for his family. Jurgis Rudkus is married to Ona. The two have two late children and two handicapped children. When he, his wife, and their children move to Packingtown, Chicago from Lithuania, Jurgis finds a job to provide for them. Of course, having one person only working to pay the bills is difficult especially with the little pay.
Obviously, that is not enough, therefore students will not have the motivation any more to get good grades the next year, because they want something more. I think students should get paid for good grades for several reasons, for example it will motivate the students to work hard, teach the students responsibility, and it will make the teacher’s job easier. Some students around the world are asking this question, “should students be paid for good grades”. Some students say yes we should, because students are working hard to get good grades, so they deserve a proper gift. Imagine the situation if the school pays the student who gets good marks.

College: Is It Worth It? As a student in high school, the pressure of figuring out what I want to do in the future is real. The idea of growing up and getting a college education seems to be always in the back of my mind and it is hard. What if I don’t want to go to college? It’s hard to even think about that seeing as not going to college is often seen as lazy and irresponsible, but should it be seen that way?
