I agree with James Baldwin what he said about the education because, he said look at the world self not by what other people told us and feel the world what you want to be. Also to try fight for education no matter what rick. Education is important things, which is making our dream come true in the future. First, the purpose of education is fight for education no matter what rick because education is what helps you succeed your goals in life.
Education is the core of life. Ever since the establishment of public schoolings it became the social norm for children and older to seek education. The reason varies. Although, an education means to gain insightful experiences or to either gain or take guidance, there are more than just two meanings. From the essays examined: “Frank Carothers and Ted Erlandson, Loyola University”, “Suddenly I Felt Really Strange” both by Mike Rose, and “Five Ways to Wisdom” by Otto Friedrich, which shares different perspective of education and the means to be an educated person.
Even though his brother was too deep into drug and gang culture to escape, “[he] wanted Wes to be nothing like him” (72). Yet, Wes was consumed by the, “… same game that had consumed [his brother] and put a bullet or two in him,” and had never known anything in his family outside of drugs and gang violence, so drugs and gangs were the only expectation Wes had, the only place he saw himself fitting into (58). Ultimately, the expectations of those
Some may argue that you do not need education to be successful, looking at examples of one out of million people that made it in life without a highschool diploma; however, that is one out of million and education may not be a guarantee but at least it is a start. Education will always have value put in whatever situation and in whatever period in time, education is a start to push towards success. Because being able to see two totally different personal experiences on education they can come to agreement that education should be one’s first priority if they want to be living a happy successful life. Even though some people actually, very few people, become very successful without education.
The world's first autobiographer and Roman poet, Quintus Horatius Flaccus (Horace), states, “life is largely a matter of expectation”. The idea that success comes from high expectations has been evident since 65 B.C., and is still a common argument in 2017. When Wes Moore is meeting with his incarcerated acquaintance, who is also named Wes Moore, the two are discussing where their life stories diverged. Both had similar upbringings, neither with a father figure, but with different support systems. The author Wes Moore, who was sent to military school as a teenager, is now a successful and highly regarded entrepreneur.
For many people, college is an important key for their future. Some people go to college for the job opportunities and the new windows it can open. Others go just for the education and experience. A good education is beneficial from many different viewpoints; in truth, it is a possibility that one's adult life could be much harder than people care to think. One can have better wealth, is less likely to be unemployed, and a much higher chance of being closer to your family.
When thinking about education, for the most part one always thinks about school. Is education really just about school or what does it mean to be educated is the big question. Being educated to me, does not mean having a degree or is not determined by whether one came from an Ivy League school. Everyone can go to a university and earn a degree but one who truly is educated learns something and actually uses their knowledge. To be educated means having your horizons broaden and your visions are clear.
Education has always been an important part of my life, I have always had a certain admiration and value for it. College has not actually transformed my way of thinking, if anything it only reinforced it. A book that challenged and made me deeply acknowledge education and my life was, The Last Lecture, by Randy Paush. The quotes and lessons in this book have truly resonated with me and taught me about living. The lecture stressed the importance of overcoming difficulties, seizing every moment, and supporting the dreams of others.
Though there are many, the main reasons that I am getting a college education is to learn about what I am passionate about, to have more career options, and for financial security. The most important reason that I am going to college, first and foremost, is to learn. When I was younger, I always knew I wanted to study people. However, the thought of studying anthropology and sociology-type subjects never sat well with me; these subjects reeked of subjectivism and a not-so-subtle vibe of “you’ll never get a job with that”.
It can teach you about the wrong and rights in this world and sometimes even teach you on how they affect and change us. It can also teach you on how we can all be the bigger person in some situations. A school system is also a place where most people feel safe and feel like they can express themselves. In fact, our education system isn’t actually broken, it is designed to create winners and losers. In college nowadays we have a lot of options on what we want to do.
Another reason why people go to school is because being educated means a person will have a wider view of reality and be open to equality. Education also makes a person confident about himself/herself because educated persons are taken more seriously than those without schooling and also self-dependent, not just in financial terms but also in making decisions in life. It’s also a tool in making someone’s dreams come true, if he/she want to be a lawyer, a doctor, an accountant, or whatever he/she wants to be. (Reda,
The question is: Is a university degree still important today? Some say yes, because it is seen to be a major achievement in life; yet others disagree, as they believe university is a waste of time and money because it requires at least 3 or more years to earn a bachelor’s degree with each year costing a substantial amount of money. From my perspective, the advantages of earning a college degree exceed the disadvantages. Have you ever joked or mentioned about dropping out of high school? Throughout the whole essay, I will be persuading my audience on why university is significant.
Education helps an individual to thrive in society, to interact with other social animals and helps a person attain and maintain a certain degree of social well-being. During the process of education, one is always a part of a group, be it school or college. The process of education thus contributes to one 's interpersonal intelligence. The fundamental purpose of education is to teach a person to read and write. Reading goes a long way in life, providing the reader with experiences of life and training him/her to lead a meaningful life.
