At this level, the analysis will be very small and precise because it deals with the most basic form of interaction, between each other or small groups. When studying the issue of students dropping out of college at a single or small scale, there are many problems that could affect why one person would not be able to make it at a college or university. One example is a family cannot manage to maintain a student in college because they are needed in the home. A specific example would be if a parent passed away, and there is a new lack of stability for the family. A student might have to drop out and get a job to provide for younger siblings or a parent.
These four conditions are consequences of abuse and neglect, the challenges of attachment to the caregiver, a child's changing senses, and response to stress (Committee on Early Childhood). Most caregivers foster more than one child at a time and give attention to some more than the others and they can take this very harshly. In a new situation with new strangers is hard especially for the older children who are accustomed to being with family members or guardian. In another source, “Children in Foster Care and the Developmental of Favorable Outcomes” by Cynthia V. Healey, she explains that children have become victims in the foster care system no matter if they end up adopted or not. Favorable outcome “were defined as demonstrations of emotions” during the middle of childhood (Children in Foster Care).
Parents play a big role in their child’s lives because they provide a sense of direction for them. It is natural for a child to look up to his/her mom or dad. If a young adult doesn’t have the help from their parents who have already experienced college then they are already behind the kids who are able to use their parents as a resource. A quote by Nijay Williams in the article says, “My mom stopped school in the ninth grade; my dad stopped in the fourth grade … It makes it harder for me, [and] most of the people I graduated with are not in college, but that’s what I see myself doing; I want to go to college. I just want to have a degree.” This is first person point of view is evidence that proves people with parents who dropped out on their education are making it harder on their child’s education.
As a result, many students have to rely on financial aid to pay for their college expense. However, not all students received the amount of aid they need to pay for college admission. When students don’t have the aid to cover the expense they will have to change their choice of college. The amount of financial aid student received effect the students in college by determining where the student will attend, whether or not the student have to obtain a job to be financially stable, and the amount of loan students end with after graduating.
As I look back on my journey to college, I faced many different problems and disadvantages even before taking my first steps on campus. In Linda Banks-Santilli’s “Guilt is one of the biggest struggles first-generation college students face” many first generation students view being the first one in the family as a major flaw before entering college (Banks-Santilli, 2015, Par. 4 &7). The lack of self-respect makes it difficult for students to achieve success without help or motivation. The students have to change their viewpoint about being the first to go to college in their family as a weakness and make it a strength to help motivate them to be better students.
Alfred Lubrano the author of “the shock of Education: How college Corrupts” explains the differences and difficulties of what students can go through while they are in college. Lubrano says that when a student arrives at college, they lose their connection to their families. This is due to the extreme workload put on the student by the professors they don’t have the time to really chat with their parents like they used to when they lived at home. Also if there is an enormous distance gap where the students go to college and where their parents live it may create that sense like they don’t know each other anymore. I agree do with Alfred that college students change once they go to college they start grow apart from their families.
Do you ever wonder what college students fears might be? Do you ever wonder what is going through their mind? In the article “The Student Fear Factor” by Rebecca Cox, it explains many different factors that a college student might be going through. The article gives many point of views from other students and what their thoughts about college was. There are some students who either are incoming high school students or are returning which can be a big fear for them the most because they don’t know what to expect from the campus vibe or even what their teacher can be like.
When people mature, there is often a specific event that causes them to come out of childhood and into adulthood. Although many small moments contribute to the maturation of a child, there is usually an important event in which the child needs to grow up to comprehend. An example of this is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, which is a bildungsroman, where the children begin to mature as adolescents. In the novel, there were specific points of growing up for both of the Finch children. For Jem Finch, the pivotal moment in his maturation and new understanding of the world’s unfairness is his reaction after he receives the verdict of Tom Robinson’s trial.
Is college really worth the cost Is college worth the time and money. All parents want their kids to go to college. Parents want better for their kids. Parents do not realize how much college costs until it’s time for their child to go. Most parents find it hard to pay for college.
