Through his many successes and obstacles, he still manages to create a new perspective on not going to college, making it just as wise of a decision as going to college depending on the career path and scholarly education a student accumulated in prior schooling. In addition to this modern philosophy, he mends a potential gap of knowledge between college students and students that follow another route. He proposes that a liberal education, a style that can only be given in college, should be given in primary education, giving a sense of equality between grade levels from primary to secondary schooling. As an effect, the stress of needing a degree diminishes and respect for people with or without one becomes indistinguishable. Murray stresses the importance to the
Dr. King expresses how we are prone to let our lives be invaded with propaganda, legions of half truths, and how the press is pursuing an agenda that the viewers are fed half truths. From back then to present, while improving the system of public education in the United States is the critical building block to the economic prosperity of our nation and its citizens, providing every child with a quality education is far more important than that. Dr. King wants to show the key to whether society can achieve the principles, values, democracy, and humanity that we claim. Things that Martin Luther King Jr. wrote decades ago about the purpose of education still sound

If there could be a successful shift to the problem-posing pedagogy, then I think that the outcomes of the community-controlled schools would show them as a more than viable approach to education. Freire brings a percentage of his arguments back to the lack harboring the personal agency within students. In the banking method, students do not become independent thinkers. When the Native Americans were left to their own devices, the amount of students chasing undergraduate degrees, especially focused in the field of education.
It was right out of college, so he probably hadn’t thought about becoming a political leader yet. The only thing that would make him work there was his beliefs that these children deserved an education, even though they were colored.

School Wide Writing Project Former superintendent, Lawrence B. Shlack argues in his article, Not Going to College is a Viable Option, that too many students believe that going to college is the only option after high school in order to be successful. The main purpose of this article is to convince students to be less narrow-minded on the topic of post-high school decisions and effectively provides the reasoning behind his logic and provides alternatives. As a retired superintendent, Schlack proves that he has sufficient credibility and knowledge of high school students and what most of them are thinking. The use of pathos and ethos combined with his credibility appeals to the readers strongly by making the article relatable for most high schoolers. Knowledge and credibility on the topic along with emotional and logical appeals made Schlack’s article’s persuasion effective.

He gives us reasons as to why he believes this has been an ongoing problem for decades and that we need to focus on the proper cause. His stance on raising children with proper morals and asking that adults join in on the effort to lead lives with those same morals is goal most should want to stand behind. The writing was effective in gaining my attention. It was a reminder that the public itself is not always the best role model for our children. I agree with the article.
I can agree with Obama when he says that education is the heart of this country. Taking responsibility and pursuing a career is the way to make Short 6 it in this country, but Obama feels that “American schools are not holding up their bargain” in regards to competition globally (159). He wants this country to be the best it can be just like many people do in the same respect. Education is important to me, and I know it has to be important to many others in the world. By showing these concerns in this book, Barack won me over with The Audacity of Hope.
Robinson uses lots of different examples and stories to help convince his audience and help them understand the issues at hand. Ken Robinson successfully convinces his intended audience that even though literacy is understood as being more important in schools over creativity it is not more important they should be treated as equal.
