What has been happening now is the average number of students getting high marks in a class has steadily increased over the years. And one of the main reasons behind that is that professors believe that they are helping their students be competitive enough when they get to the job market. In fact, according to Professor Harvey Mansfield of Harvard University, “the reason why inflated grades are given, is because many universities feel like they need to give their student a leg up in the job market” (Slavov). I remember a story told to me recently by a software engineer for the US Navy, that one his coworkers asked their boss to consider his son as one of the potential applicants for a recent job opening in their department. The first question the boss asked him was what his son’s GPA was.
Bloom blames historicism for destroying these founding myths. For instance, Charles Beard devalued the public spirit in favor of private interests thus devaluing our founding ideology and fathers (Bloom 56). This has created cynical individuals that are unwilling to place great stock in our founding to either be motivated by it or heavily critical of it (56). The lack of ideological superiority makes a moral education impossible to instill in youth as they do not understand the highs and lows thus leaving them without moral equilibrium (Bloom
His depiction of a feared ruler disregards the prosperity of his people and does not account for their pursuit of happiness. They must live in fear and refrain from angering their malicious prince. A ruler should not be concerned with his own prosperity, instead, he should seek to benefit his people. I believe Machiavelli’s opinion on how a prince should rule is evil, and I find no justification in his
Thurgood Marshall was instrumental in ending legal segregation and became the first African-American justice of the Supreme Court.

The TMCF also provides a pipeline for HBCU to get access to top employers, scholarships, conferences, internships programs, and more. This session opened doors for many students and previously accepted many over the years from our own university, The University of Maryland Eastern Shore. This program helps students apply concepts to real world encounters.
“Education is the key to success” is a common phrase said by many of our millennial cohorts. The idea that education is a critical component of acquiring an eminent lifestyle has dated back since premodern times. Individuals are now constantly enrolling in postsecondary institutions in hopes of attaining endless opportunities along with the implied benefits that results from a college degree. Nevertheless, a college education is, unfortunately, not accessible to all people. In “The Diploma Divide,” Kassie Bracken explores the major disparity among low income students and their affluent counterparts on obtaining a postsecondary degree in the U.S. With the employment of an alluring appeal to one’s emotions, a use of despondent word choices to establish a dispirited ambience, and a distinguished platform to elucidate the author’s thoughts, Kassie effectively promoted her argument on how a college education is not attainable for all individuals.
Student success is founded upon the encouragement teachers and parents give to students to have a growth mindset rather than have a fixed mindset and not accepting challenges. According to “Raising Smart Kids” by Dweck, “The helpless ones believe that intelligence is a fixed trait: you only have a certain amount, and that’s that. I call this a ‘fixed mindset’. Mistakes crack their self-confidence because they attribute errors to a lack of ability, which they feel powerless to change. They avoid challenges because challenges make mistakes more likely and looking less smart so.” (23).
Present a possible counter argument (a point someone on the opposing side of the issue might address) to the claim. Many people can’t imagine that there’d be any disadvantages of going to an elite college. There are real disadvantages, however, of going to an elite college. “Three researchers wath an initiative called the Good project, which is housed within the graduate school of education at Harvard conducted interviews with forty members of harvard 's undergraduate class of 2013 during their final, senior year. And they concluded that a education had a ‘funnel effect.’ ‘Though students enter college with a diverse set of interests, by senior year, most of them seem to focus on a narrow set of jobs,’ the authors wrote.” -pg 162 The argument is logical, because it is based of a credible team of researchers and it further evidence is a significant quantity of evidence is provided to support the argument in other sections of the text outside of the provided quote.
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
Therefor proving that college is worth it because graduates tend to make higher salaries and prove to be more employable than those lacking a college degree. First of all, college increases one’s annual income and salary. This is because higher paying jobs often require a college degree and only consider applicants who have one. According to the Bureau of labor statistics, workers with a Bachelor's degree earn a median of $1,326 a week meanwhile, workers with only a high school diploma earn an average of $668 a week. This proves that a college degree does make your wallet thicker and almost
