The other reasons have to with poor attitudes, like not doing homework dillydallying, and skipping class. Lastly, there are reasons related to personal issues, such as test anxiety and concentrating problems. (Kurtus, 2012) • Student-related Factors • Not Ready for College Students aren’t prepared for post-secondary work and lack foundational skills that hinder to achieve passing grades. Many students don’t learn those skills in grade school and high school, that when they reach college they aren’t ready for the demands of being a college student (“Why Do Students Fail?
He finds success in this strategy but still struggles with feeling “foreign” and isolated. He is the only “colored kid” in his classes and time constraints prevent him from being involved with groups that he could identify with. Still he would “pull up his bootstraps, looking out for number one.” Villanueva would go on to complete his BA and apply to the Graduate Program. It would be his “minority status,” not his test scores that allow him entry into the program. It’s a blow to his ego, but he’s in.
"Some Lessons From the Assembly Line" review In the article "Some Lessons From the Assembly Line" by Andrew Braaksma (2005). Braaksma is trying to reach the audience of college students and blue-collar workers. With his personal experience he shows how his friends who attend college and haven 't worked long hours don 't understand why he is happy to be back at school, they don 't understand what it is like to work long hard hours all day long and not be paid accordingly. "There are few things as cocksure as a college student who has never been out in the real world, and people my age always seem to overestimate the value of their time and knowledge. After a particularly exhausting string of 12-hour days at a plastics factory, I remember being shocked at how small my check seemed" Braaksma (2005).
I think it’s ridiculous for a student to make such excuses! It made me angry when I read that some student’s lie about a relative’s death so that they can get excused from an assignment, how could somebody do that!? And who would want that irresponsible student to work for them after they graduate, or if they graduate from college. She explained so many different excuses in the article and I was actually entertained reading them. Why continue to attend college if you are never able to turn in work on

The opposing side of this argument might say that “even though begin a college graduate, and having a degree can lead to finding well paying jobs. Graduates are often left drowning in
In the article “College Is Worth the Cost,” Brooks C. Holtom states, “ People who graduates with bachelor’s degree will earn nearly twice as much over their course of their carriers as those who complete on high school. In other words, Brooks C. Holtom point is that if you go to college you will get paid twice as much than just your high school diploma. Also if I would go to college I would earn $2.1 million instead of $1.2 million from a high school diploma. All in all,
In school, Luis experiences the improper class placement, “the school separated these two groups by level of education:the professional-class kids were provided with college-preparatory classes; the blue-collar students were pushed into industrial arts. (AR 84) This type of class placement is unfair, because it is based on their status and kids do not have the option of being born into a rich or poor family. Students don’t even have a chance to choose the field they want to be in and they have their future already planned for them. Education is one of the root causes that are not
Suggestions for how to maintain the workforce range from better training on how to understand the certification process having mentors who could help keep them on track at least until they receive tenure, and more training at the college level on the curriculum. Waiting until the Internship is too late to provide on the job training. By then you’ve spent 3 years in theory and non on the reality. The reality of the job means bad-tempered students with no accountability, little or no parental involvement , lack of leadership, inconsistently enforced administrative procedures and miserably low paychecks. Some students lack the financial resources and support to make it through college and the large differences in the teacher training process in colleges and universities cause another disparity.
People who are in work-study programs do not receive any experience in their desired field of study. The purpose of work-study programs is to instruct students on how to multi-task in between a job and an education. Work study programs allow students to have the responsibility of both an occupation and academics.
