Is going to college really worth it? There is no doubt about it, the rising cost of tuition in this country is making college a worse and worse deal for American students. The college costs are rising faster than health care or gas prices in most cases students tend to say that if a teacher has a top student, he or she is the one who gets good grades. However, according to Education Sector, a non-profit education think tank, only 57 percent of bachelor degree students graduate in six years. Colleges restrict young people’s lives because after college they have debt of $50,000 or more to repay due to student loans.
NISH Rough draft 7/17/14 The cost of college The biggest worry for most high school students is the future college’s tuition fees. And the biggest question nowadays “is the collage cost too high”? Most high school students want to get a degree from a decent university and then have a fair job when then walk off from university but these universities cost incredibly high. The average American student pays for college is about 30,000$ dollars. The high college cost is not only troubles students but for parents too, when the student is about to graduate from high school the parent starts to worry about their financial expenses.
The students who are agonizing the financial difficulties have to search for a job to pay for their collage or support their families. Observably, it is very durable to be focused on both employment and study fields. So, it is very clear that financial expense is the one of the particular reason why college students give up their college education. Most of the high school students admit in a college by thinking of that a college life would be more unrestricted and preferable than their high school lives with parents. Also, they have a conjoint believe that
“The Case Against College Education” Thesis: College is not for everyone and it is absurd that society puts so much pressure on attending it. SR# 1: We are pushing students into college who are not meant for it. -40% of students who enrolled in college drop out. SR# 2: Benefits of putting more people in college are oversold. -the college wage premium is an illusion.
At the same time, public colleges complain that they are being squeezed by declining state support and increasing pressure to educate larger number of less prepared students. College costs too much due to the Faculty lack of power. I believe the cost of colleges is too high and my reason for that is because, the institution’s labor cost per student is basically the sum of wages and benefits divided up by the number of students. The cost per student goes up as wages and as benefit go up, or as the ratio of staff to students rises. When that ratio goes down, productivity increases, and the cost can go down, even if wages and benefits go up.
In other words, the contemporary pressure for money influences many lower-income students to enter college with inadequate funds, which ultimately forces them to drop out of college. Meanwhile, many universities struggle with a sufficient response to this alarming collegiate quandary. While Leonhardt fails to accurately represent certain points, his argument is certainly effective at explaining the relationship between education and socioeconomic class that contributes to the alarming rate of college dropouts.

College is too expensive for the middle-class man to afford. This can cause massive amounts of debts in student loans, smart students lowering their academic standards in order to attend a state university or community college, and even students choosing to join the work force out of high school instead of pursuing a degree. This is not a knock on community college or state schools but when a student can excel at a school like Harvard and has to instead go to Slippery Rock, the education system is
Generation Debt The struggle to become financially independent and successful is a goal that has become increasingly more difficult for individuals aged 18-35. With the excessive price tag that comes with pursuing a college degree and the lack of good job opportunities, young people commonly find themselves in greater and greater debt. Rather than enjoying a life they believe they deserve, they find themselves unable to afford even basic necessities such as health insurance or a decent living arrangement. They become stuck, trapped in a situation that doesn’t offer the opportunity of settling down. Unfortunately, much of the older generation believes that this lack of opportunity is due to laziness.
Erik Aguirre Humanities 31 Mr. Walzer Over the past several years, students have been confronting an extended amount of barriers stopping them from success in institutions of higher education. There is a wide range of obstacles that prevent student success, but the top two obstacles to success are made up by barriers of insufficient funding and insufficient advice and guidance from the colleges. Additionally, obstacles that are more insubstantial include lack of time management, family responsibilities, balancing school with work and last but not least poor work-habits. Receiving financial assistance to help pay out the costs of higher education is a main concern that many students say they seek in order to facilitate success in college. Concerns about having to pay tuition costs and covering other costs like books, supplies, transportation, and etc… become really stressing to students who are not eligible or whom received very little aid.
