However, it is still an issue for students to cough up that money. The idea of making community college free to any student in America has been a dream for low income students for a while. President Obama’s desire to make the tuition of community college to everyone in the nation would only make it difficult for students to get a free education, limit them to essential resources, and discourage students from applying to four year universities. Granting free community college tuition to incoming freshmen will draw “more students to already crowded community colleges”. Along with the overcrowded campuses, a very long waiting list will soon form making it just as competitive to get into a four year university.
In Should The Obama Generation Drop Out Charles Murray talks about the flaws found in the Obama education plan . He brings to the attention of the public the fact that many student in America graduate lacking the skills necessary for the proper college education. Murray goes on to argue that in today 's society students who graduate from High-school go on to technical college to pursue a vocational education in their field of study; whereas, older generations have pursued an all around education, enrolling in classes that were irrelevant to the career they were pursuing. Murray claims that if you test the vast majority of Americans (including himself) in the more rigorous subjects, they would most likely fail. Murray mentions that he does
All students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 of Australian schools will soon sit The National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN), which assesses them using national tests in Reading, Writing, Language Conventions (Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation) and Numeracy. It is possible to see how much progress in literacy and numeracy a student has made as they advance through schooling, by the introduction of ten achievement bands from Year 3 to Year 9. Governments always feel the demand from the electorate for information on which to base decisions and schools are no different. They have taken the tests a step further - using the results to publish a website ranking schools against those of a similar nature. There is talk of expanding the service to hospitals and child care centres.
Many people dream of a life filled with riches, but that dream is hard to obtain without a college degree. It is somewhat ironic how people dream of being a successful student and going to college but the cost of tuition turns that dream into a horrible nightmare. It is not a shock to most people when they that college tuition is expensive, but in the past few years it has increased to an all-time high. Lower and middle class students have now begun to realize that college tuition is holding them away from their dreams. Even though college tuition could provide opportunities for job creation and economic growth, tuition is not affordable for the average American household which in effect, prohibits students from taking opportunities like going to college in the first place.
The newspaper editorial “Someone has to stand up for the gifted students” Heather Mallick’s October 2017 article for the Toronto Star, takes a stance on the topic on gifted programs for students. The author seeks to convince readers that gifted programs should be implemented in schools. Based on ideas and key writing concepts from the reading “Mind Wide Open” by Jean Prinsen, it is clear that Mallick words the article in a way that is easy for the average person to understand. However, it ultimately lacks sufficient evidence, and uses threatening condescending language to make up for her lack of sufficient evidence.
Therefore, tuition fees have increased as colleges have begun to take advantage of the social norm that has taken place in the society where it is expected of every individual to join college. Tuition cost, in turn, has a negative impact on persons who may fail to raise up the tuition fee required for to pursue a bachelor’s degree in a field of choice. Through the argument, it becomes evident that the decisions by various individuals not to pursue college due to the inability to raise funds for the fee but instead opt for a liberal education has continuously been looked down upon (Murray 236-238). This is based on the common that has been established that persons with Bachelor’s degrees are in demand and are likely to have a higher pay compared to individuals who may have opt to pursue working skills through liberal education (Murray
An essay’s purpose is to persuade and/or inform readers of a topic that a writer is passionate about. In an essay such as Pass, Fail by Ron Srigley the purpose is to persuade readers with a convincing argument and is an excellent example of an effective argument. Srigley is a university professor at UPEI who writes with passion and a slightly sarcastic tone throughout his article to prove his thesis. The purpose of his inductive essay is to persuade his audience (which are parents of future/current students in postsecondary institutions as well as students themselves) that the education system has gone down hill over the years and is therefore a waste of an educational experience. His thesis of the essay comes in the last paragraph: Not just
The conclusion by the committee fails because of the many assumptions that it fails to back with data. Because the conclusion fails to account for assumptions regarding the evidence of reduced education budget, the increased adult population, or the reduced influx of students it fails to make a cohesive case and fails under close scrutiny. The argument assumes that because of the dwindling population birthrate, the education funds can be cut for the next decade. While the trends might indicate that the population has reduced in the past 5 years, it is not a foregone conclusion that it would continue to do so. If the population of the Calatrava increased in the near future, the funds allocated towards the future education of the students might hugely fall of the mark.
Outliers Speech In Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, he states on page 19, “People don’t rise from nothing. They are invariably the beneficiaries of hidden advantages and extraordinary opportunities.” The book Outliers is a collection of chapters discussing the minorities, or in this books, the outliers within a specific group of people. Throughout the book, he speaks of the high rate of success with KIPP students, why hockey players born in January are more successful, and why the smartest man did not graduate college.
The small problems. In Guided Pathways, some small problems are money, class, education, and the last can go on. The big problem are students not completing their education. For example, the passage for Guided Pathways stated "Nationally, only about half of full-time students pursuing a four-year degree graduate — in six years.” This will cause full time students still take an extra 2 years to graduate.
With college tuition costs exploding, and job placement rates lowering, modern college students are being set up for failure. Many people are blaming the government for this problem, but the fault is at the ignorance and stupidity of these college students themselves. Looking into colleges myself, I am realizing how expensive things really are. Tuitions at both private and public schools are extremely high, and living costs have to be taken into consideration too. People around me are planning on going to schools that frankly, they just shouldn’t be going to.
More often than the public likes to believe, “social promotion” has become a fairly large part of education, specifically early and high school education. Every year, many children throughout the nation are being moved on to the next grade level without passing the previous education level. Over all, “social promotion” is doing more harm than good for various reasons. One of the main arguments of “social promotion” is pride against ability. A large group of people believe that retention hurts children’s self-esteem and makes them more likely to drop out of high school.
Deciding whether or not you go to college is one of the most difficult decisions of your life. When thinking about college, you must examine every aspect and every point of view before you decide to go or not. There are social, economical, and educational views to strongly consider before going or not going to college. While not going to college has financial benefits, going to college offers social and educational advantages you can’t find anywhere else. It may take a substantial amount of money to go to college, but most people will make more money after college than a person with a high school diploma or less.
