(Page 211, Figure one). The authors’ emphasis on “on average” is very effective at showing how their point makes sense and why it should be taken into consideration. I found the way that the authors focused on the minority more than the majority was skillfully effective at showing how some career paths do not require a college education and that the return in investment would not be worth the cost. Throughout their argument I found the writers to mostly use Logos and Ethos in their writing. The Logos is evident by the way they use statistics and the Ethos by how they state telling someone the only way to be successful is to go to college is a disservice.
In my opinion, the author is stating that all the statistics should be laid out for the student and left up to them to decide if they are interested in pursuing college. In sum, then, the issue is whether college is worth the time or money. Though I concede that college is pricey and can consume a lot of your time, my view is that college is the best option after high school. Writers of article “Should Everyone go to college” suggest three main reasons as to why high school students should think twice before attending college. The first reason is the rate of return on education.
Many people think that it is just an extra burden on them by paying high college feeses. If you are willing to secure a good degree then it is obvious that you have to join a good college with a better reputation but at this point, many people fail to take admission in good colleges due to the hurdle of money. Many people think about going to college as pretty normal and plan for it without much of a second thought. A good College gives you a surety of a better future. The college cost varies according to the courses so one should keep in mind that what course is he willing to do?
I knew this one younger woman who lived in poorly kept housing and went to a school where education didn’t matter as much as it should. And even though her GPA met but did not exceed the scholarships GPA she was still able to win the scholarship. That’s when I realized that the scholarship is not looking for who has the best GPA or test scores, they’re looking for the student who has a story to tell but was still able to overcome it and wants better for him/herself. One of the goals of the scholarship program is to reduce financial barriers for African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian Pacific Islander American, and Hispanic American students with high academic and leadership promise who have significant financial need. And I feel that the scholarship has kept its promise to help minority students reduce the loans and debt that they will have in the near future.
Intro My brother, being a ninth grader at the high school, is constantly reminded of the importance of college and his performance in high school. I want to start looking into colleges but i don’t know where to start. The thought of getting left behind in society because I didn’t look for a college is nerve racking, but I already knew some things. I knew that your performance in high school helps with your college, but that’s about it. I still had a lot to learn before I can decide on a college Some things I hoped to learn throughout this project is how I can get into a college with minimum student loan, what colleges I’m interested in, what colleges are looking for, is studying abroad better than staying in the states, and what classes I should take in college.
With college you don't just study for a career, you study for something that you would like to do for your life. You don't have to know right away, but don't miss out on the value that college can bring you. In the article "Actually, College Is Very Much Worth It" by Andrew J. Rotherham, the author states,"College graduates are also more likely to be in jobs with better benefits, further widening the divide" (Rotherham 80). Having a better job and a better salary is good in many ways as to being able to pay for more like a car, house, and maybe kids. Money is a struggle for a lot of people and if you go to college you get an advantage to getting more money.
1 Many kids graduate school wondering what college they want to go to and if they want to spend so much money on it. Though some people think that college isn’t worth it I’d like to respectfully disagree. I think that college is worth it. The evidence I have behind my reasoning is that people with a diploma that are not going to college won’t be able to experience amazing social gatherings than people with a degree, and people with a diploma make less money than people with a degree. 2 First, people with a diploma that are not going to college won’t be able to experience amazing social gatherings than people with a college degree.
The environment in a community college is very sociable which advocates a better education. There are many different people in community college including veterans, of marital and maternal status, and middle-aged men wanting to improve their employment prospects (Hanks). Hanks shows how diverse and ambitious the community college environment is. One might object that the efficiency of the student might decline because of how social the college is and how prone the students are to distractions at a community college. To some extent this is true however, President Obama’s proposal prevents this from
Education after high school will lead to better job finds and just all around smartness and maybe even learning things a school can’t teach you. I think the world needs to lower college prices because you need a college education for most good jobs, so poor students can still attend college, and the debt you have after college is enormous and takes forever to pay off. Please take all of these reasons into
From my research, I found many articles on reasons why people go to college, reasons they do not go to college, and statistics on going and not going to college. There are many leading factors on why people might not go to college. Some reasons may include: financial aspects of college, the tests you must take to get in, or just having no desire to go to college. Currently I am a high school senior and I have been given the option to go to college. I am trying to figuring out what I want to spend my life doing.
Do I think college is right for everyone? No. However, I do see the value college has to offer. Though, you might not be able to make much more per hour, than say an employee with a high school education. But, college allows you to get the job before the applicant without the degree does.
At some points it feels as though people’s lives are based solely around it. College is the next step in education, though it is optional, many argue if it’s even really worth it. After going through college, jobs opportunities open up in a broad range in the field in which the degree is in. A lot of the time college degrees help people find a job that suits them and makes them happy. If the college degree was not gained, then there are very few job openings that are life long
