(Clemmit). Many Americans settle for “high school jobs” because they are unable to find a job that requires the degree that they earned. College graduates tend to receive a higher pay, and are more likely to be hired than someone without a degree, but they are not meeting their full potential. College degrees are not “necessary”, but they can be beneficial when trying to find a job. Many Americans succeed and do just fine without a college
Since the time of the Revolutionary War and when people were very active patriots for their nation; people have cared less and less about their mother country. If you have any opinions about your own country
“If Grade Inflation Continues A College Bachelor’s Degree will have just as much credibility as a high school diploma”by Walter E.Williams which happens to be true people that go to college don’t have to try as hard to get a decent grade for most people they just planout expect to have a good grade when they did not work for it. But whos fault is to blame the students or teachers. While looking into Stuart Rojstaczer story the “Grade Inflation Gone Wild”. Sturt studies the way that grade inflation work while doing his research Sturt found out that colleges and universities grades has gone up and down also level out all during the 60s 70s also the 80s. Grade has continued to go up most of the school GPAs are 3.0 or above.
It is getting harder for immigrants living in the United States to fulfill their American Dream, which causes them to put pressure on their first generation American child to fulfill the dream for them. To many immigrant parents, the Dream consist of getting a high paying stable job, and being able to provide for the rest of the family. However, even if a first generation child goes to a well respected college to get the stable, high paying job of their parents dreams, it is sometimes not enough. Due to language barriers and ethnic sounding names, first generation Americans are constantly being put down by employers who care more about appealing to the White public than provide an educated person a job. Immigrant parents fail to understand
America is a nation of diversity. Many days out of the year are dedicated to celebrate any number of different races and ethnic groups. The U.S. Census Bureau, Population Estimates Program estimates that 61.6% of the population. While that is a good part of the population; that still leaves around 40% of the population being of foreign ancestry.
The American Dream has many interpretations, but it is commonly defined as “the ideal that every US citizen should have an equal opportunity to achieve success and prosperity through hard work, determination, and initiative”. Success stories of the few who go from “rags to riches” by overcoming their obstacles and unfortunate circumstances through hard work, grit, and perseverance have lingered in the American culture for centuries, but with unemployment rates on the rise, and class mobility rates declining, many are questioning if the American dream is
The American Dream is still alive and available to everyone today, although it is different for everyone. The American Dream is what each individual believes it to be and does not have a set definition, it is whatever the person believes it to be and it still possible for everyone. America still provides access to opportunity for everyone from the people who are born in poverty to the people that are born into wealth. While lately there has been much debate over whether the American Dream is still alive and well and many people believe that it is dead, there are considerable proof and evidence that the American Dream is developing and thriving. First of all, in the American Constitution, it states “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
School isn’t for everyone though school is claimed to be a necessity to being “successful” most young adults can do without. Here’s to show you can have a “successful” life right after high school without college; the options students have during high school, less spending money and more making money, starting your career sooner.
There wouldn’t be opportunity for growth in this country without successful graduation rates. The future of our country depends on the scholars that colleges produce. Without a thoroughly educated society, America would hit the floor and relapse into a deep depression. Jobs would disappear because the ones applying for them wouldn’t get accepted because they aren’t qualified. Even though dropout rates rise each year in America, college application rates are also on the rise because graduating high school students understand the importance of attending college.
The unemployment rate in the community of Union City is 60% higher than the national average (Kirp 169). Their success was not through copious amounts of funding, but through hard work and a long term plan of small changes (Kirp 170). This demonstrates that education is available as a whole to all who step forth into the United States seeking an education. It is not only given to those with wealth and esteem, but to those who have nothing to offer except their time and energy. All in all Alvarez and Union City is a perfect example of how no matter the situation a good education is available to those who are willing to grasp
Throughout history, millions of people have immigrated to The United States with high hopes of a better life. This not only helped them achieve their goal, but also helped build America as we know it today. While they can be hard workers, illegal immigration ultimately needs to be stopped, or slowed at the very least because it 's economically crippling to allow them to take advantage of government assistance, it’s expensive to ensure the education of their children, many put lives in danger by driving without a licence, and allowing them to stay encourages more to come. When people come to America illegally and start a family, they have children, so as a result, almost half of illegal immigrant households have children in them. These children are technically US citizens because they were born here, which means they’re enrolled into public schools which costs money that their illegal parents are unlikely able to pay.
One argument against immigration claims that, if everybody is highly educated then nobody is highly educated (Levitt 115). Something that comes up once in a while is the idea that the investment into your education could just lead to you getting a minimum wage job at McDonalds. This is due to the fact that the amount of populace that has attended higher education is too high in comparison to the amount of people who haven’t and are willing to work lower jobs.
Professors try to justify the sudden rise in grades but their explanations hardly convinces anyone. Mark Edmundson a professor at University of Virginia, writes about this in his essay, On the Uses of a Liberal Education,. He states, "a professor at Stanford [University] recently explained grade inflation in the humanities by observing that the undergraduates were getting smarter every year; the higher grades simply recorded how much better they were than their predecessors. Sure" (Edmundson 396). Edmundson 's sarcastic tone in his writing shows that he does not believe the Stanford professor 's explanation for grade averages going up.
They are both to blame. The parents keep blaming the companies and the companies keep blaming the parents. They should both just take responsability that they both are to blame for the obesity of the children. Parents are sometimes too busy to be able to make their children a homemade meal. There are so many fast food restaurants in every town or city, they’re everywhere and the food is prepared and quick so the kids want that because it taste good and the parents buy it because they have no time to make them a meal at home.
