He addresses the arguments against his position then refutes them more or less. His argument about sending too many students to college proves to be somewhat effective while also being ineffective. Nemko plays on the emotions of the reader and provides alternatives improving the effectiveness of the article only to fail to provide compelling refutes while damaging his credibility through his use of logos. (Nemko 32-35). So as millions of students and parents ask whether or not college is worth the money, they can turn to Marty Nemko’s article as a source of alternate answers while keeping in mind he does have some downfalls in
All of these aspects sound good for the high school level, however, they can be the polar opposites of how students are treated in college. Students not being used to freedom, for example, causes them to not be prepared for the over amount of freedom given during college. This leads kids to put off homework, not go to class, and other bad habits because they are not used to managing their time. These habits can lead to an unsuccessful college carrer, eventually leading to dropping out. A second example at the meso level is students getting caught up in partying on the weekends or even during the week.
Have you ever looked into how much college is per semester? Well, the tuition is about to get higher. College athletes are asking for money as students, and all that money must come from somewhere. To begin, college athletes should not be paid because it would take money away from other activities, leave them with $100 left, and they will miss classes. The first point is even though college athletes have the same hours as a full-time job, athletes should not be paid because it would take money away from other activities.
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.
Caroline Bird discusses, in “College is a waste of Time and Money,” her opinion on the recurring failure of education in universities. Bird alleges that college is not for everyone, but society forces high school graduates to go to college. College is believed to be the ticket to a successful career, however it some cases it is a waste of time because some classes are worthless. Those who actually decide to go to college, do so because it is a safe haven and it is payed for by parents. It is at the end a waste of time and money, according to Caroline Bird.
Free College Tuition From Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders believes that college tuition isn’t in the interest for our country’s future. Bernie Sanders states “It is insane and counter-productive to the best interests of our country and our future, that hundreds of thousands of bright young people cannot afford to go to college” (Bernie). Bernie Sanders’ point is that many of the talented people in our society may not be able to pursue their dreams or pursue their desired job because they and their parents can’t afford college. If Bernie Sanders is right that many Americans can’t afford to go to college, as I think they are, then we need to reassess the popular belief that FAFSA and other scholarships will considerably lower the price for college.
It affects them in the way of not being “treated” as professionals because they work their butts off to get in the level where they at right now and for them to get receive a single penny is like not receiving a “thank you” for not doing a job. Although college athletes should not get paid because they are receive scholarships from school. Since High School, college coaches look up for all-star players to recruit them and commit them to a college, the coaches offers them a great deal, which is like the scholarship. “Not every high-school sports-star has the brains for college” (The Economist). That means that college athletes have scholarships,although some of them don 't, so why get more
College Isn’t for Everyone "By telling all young people that they should go to college no matter what, we are actually doing some of them a disservice" (Owen). This quote from “Brookings Paper: Is College a Good Investment” goes into detail about how college isn’t for everyone. By educators, parents, and authority figures telling graduating high school seniors that college is necessary, they are limiting the potential of that student’s true skills. College isn’t right for everyone and not everyone wants to go to college. College isn’t right for everyone because its costly, it’s not the right environment for everyone, it’s not necessary for everyone’s job, and a bachelor’s degree might be too hard to get.
For example, Suli Breaks states, “I hate school, but love education.” People shouldn’t go to college if they hate education and hate school because if they do go to college their taking part in something that they don’t like. If you hate school and hate education then you shouldn’t go to college. You should do something with your life that will make you happy and make you a successful person. To conclude this argument, my claim is that you should go to college if you have a purpose because college is worth it. College is worth it because it is a proven fact that college graduates make more money than high school graduates, and because most people who go to college are better off than people who didn’t
In my opinion, college is not for everyone. College is a very expensive program that offers individuals degrees, maybe some people can’t afford college so they don’t attend. College also gives out student loans for the people who can’t pay for college but maybe some individuals like myself don’t like to be in debt so they also do not attend. Some people in this world don’t even like high school so they drop out which doesn’t give them a chance to even go to college because they don’t have a high school diploma. Other people might have personal family problems that they have to take care of so they can’t enroll in college as well.
He says both students and professors need to work together in order to keep the true meaning of college, according to him is to nourish a world of intellectual culture. Edmundson states in his essay that students lack intellectual curiosity. He blames the schools by saying colleges in America are using the consumer mentality to increase their enrollment, but this is affecting the quality of education students are receiving. But he also blames the students for not challenging their conventional thought in fear of being invalidated. He then goes on to call those students “not
The problem is the lawsuits that are holding the NCAA back from doing so and they also make arguments of paying college athletes pointless. Most people agree that if college athletes did get paid it wouldn’t be a total shock but it is just not that easy. These kids should just go through college like the alumni did and it will all payoff when they get their first major job paycheck. The point of college is to get you ready for the real world and if college athletes get paid while in college it totally defeats the purpose of college. Previous alumni didn’t get paid to play sports at their college so what makes the new athletes special.
“College in America” Caroline Bird thinks that a college education may not be the best choice for all high school students because college education does not bring about social equality, it does not benefit them financially, and it is not guaranteed that college will lead them to an elite profession. First of all, high school students are expected to bring about social equality through four rigorous years in college. However, college is an expensive way to categorize the highs and lows in society. It is pressuring to younger students to pursue a higher education that only a few could achieve, and is also difficult for them to established an identity in society. Second, a college education does not benefit the youth financially because it is
If the players or team aren’t very talented then tickets won’t sell, jerseys won’t sell and college won’t be supported, therefore making less money. However, if the team is very exceptional then the opposite occurs the college receives a glorious payday every weekend. Many others agree that college players should be paid as well. In a survey conducted at Hillsborough Middle School, in Pod 7/8c, 14 out of 20 students believe that college athletes should be paid. The other 30% of students believe that college athletes shouldn’t be paid only because of their age, only being in highschool and because they haven’t made it big.
Since the 43 billion dollars is being wasted on non-draftees, money that could be used on infrastructure, unemployment subsidies, and economic development is now being spent frivolously on ordinary students and adults in America. Overall, the military draft would redirect money away from wasted financial burdens, while it could be used on the encouragement of employment in the general
