We were all somehow exposed to different backgrounds, as well as lifestyles. Therefore, it’s safe to say that the statement “Is College for Everyone” doesn’t imply to certain people who were raised to think otherwise. However, Pharinet seems to think that most kids should consider not going to college at all. Pharinet went on to explain how most students will find themselves working full-time jobs to help pay the expenses of college, in result their grades begins to drop. Then the student decides to drop to a part-time worker, register for less class hours to find more time to work on improving their grades.
If the slum residents want to attend the ninth grade and beyond, then they would have to pay for a private school. This is not possible for a lot of these people. College is even more unthought of because how competitive it is. Since school is not required the majority of the parents do not want to send their children because they believe that they would be better off helping the family sort through garbage. For example Abdul’s parents took him out of school in order to replace his father as a garbage sorter when his father became ill with tuberculosis.
When you’re a young adult, you mainly have time for school, work and your friends. If you have a baby you really can’t hang out with your friends as much. Also you won’t have time to go to school, which if you don’t get a degree than you can’t get a good job to support that baby. The only thing you can do is work. You
You can’t be hired without experience, but you can’t get experience if you don’t get hired. We wouldn’t need daycare because all the kids are in school. If I could get a job, then we would be able to pay more on the mortgage, pay off other bills, and put money away. As of now though, there is no way that we could afford to put any extra money into the
Anything in life should not be given to anyone it should be earned or suffer the consequence. The fear of failing for some students is scary, he or she does not want to fail and if there motivated the student would most likely try harder and pay more attention in school. In example, when I was in high school I would never concentrate on social studies thinking it was important to me and one day my teacher came up to me telling me I would fail and not graduate this year because of my lack of effort in his class. From there on it got me thinking of my future and I didn’t want to fail and be back in high school for another year for stupid mistakes I made, so the next semester I work harder then ever and passed the class with an A. Sometimes a little motivation and being afraid of failure can motivate someone to work
A common stereotype is that the poor, uneducated parent isn’t going to be involved with their child’s progress and school activities. This is based on the assumption that these families are uneducated, and therefore will not be interested in their child’s education. However, other factors are not thought of. Some of these immigrant families cannot participate in PTO meetings because they are working long hours in our agriculture fields, getting home late and having to still help with homework, cook dinner and get their children to bed. These families do not work a typical 9-5, this does not mean that they are not involved with their children’s school.
The disgraceful thing about this situation is that coordinators of these institutions aren’t even educating these children, so that when they are done serving their time they can do something productive. So now the state has to pay to keep them detained and educate them when they are done serving time. By the time they get out they aren’t going to go back to school because they’ll most likely be behind a grade level or two. They don’t want to be ostracized in a class room full of 11 year old children and if they’re 14. Now the only choice they have is to be picked on or go back to doing the same thing that landed them in jail because they don’t even have an elementary or high school
Once a 18-19 year old gets their high school diploma they may believe the “ worst years are behind us” phrase but this is false. There will be struggles and your parent will not be there to help you succeed A college student must succeed in getting a job, doing well, making money there and paying for their gas, food, laundry, and books for school. The typical college student must earn scholarships just to get college, if not they’re in a bind. A college degree is not a passage to success. Sometimes the person without the college degree ends up with the less disastrous life; just because one is successful in one area of life success can still result in disaster in another.
So I would lie to my parents saying that I am done with work. I also used to do my homework late at night or at school the day it's do like other students. Other times I would have nothing to do for homework so I would say that I'll get tomorrows done today one day before it is due. Stupidly I wouldn't do it the next day either which meant I would get a zero or partial credit. Some days I think I have no home work and won't go on to grade portal to double check.
