There are people to blame for my cities downfall. Due to all the stealing that was going on in council has caused a large deficit. In recent years this has been the cause of the depressing state my city is in. its ruined state of minds so bad to the point we don’t believe in ourselves as much. Also the lack of teacher & student relations has even ruined my generation we feel as though there’s no one to fight for us.
Melvin Tyus Jr. 8-25-12 4th Period Essay To me the most important issue in this upcoming election is without question, the economy. Everyone knows this economy is a disaster, and that we are in as worse shape than Europe is in right now. Both Obama and Romney will declare war with Iran. It really doesn’t matter what they do, the economy is going to suck bad. Dealing with a bad economy is a tough job to handle, regardless who the person or persons is.
-the college wage premium is an illusion. SR# 3: There are other alternatives to the traditional college. -online learning is more flexible and affordable. SR# 4: It’s absurd that people have to get college degrees to be considered for good jobs. -it eliminates other people who are equally qualified without college degrees.
When companies make donations they gain power over the university, they gain popularity and get advertisement. On the other hand, the university looses autonomy, values, freedom and liberty to make their own decisions. In other words, universities become dependent on such corporations. According to the author this is a bad reputation for the university because it causes the public to think everything said or mentioned may be unreliable or influenced by these corporations. Therefore, the university loses credibility.
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
Also, students need to drastically lower their expectations when it comes to finding a job, “a lot of students want that perfect needle-in-the-haystack job but with this economy that’s just not possible.” (SF Chronicle). The economy is in very poor shape and to expect a job that will instantly provide them with more than substantial pay is not practical. Young individuals will have to get used to the idea that they have less options coming out of university, and that having a degree does not guarantee them decent-paying
Although they may have the motivation and willingness to work hard, students often need practical help (161). Unfortunately, in this fast-paced society, there are consequences to dropping out of college (164). Leonhardt mentions how there are limited pay raises for those without college degrees (160). Also, not everyone has the opportunity to acquire a job that is usually only given to college graduates. Although non-graduates may live satisfying lives, many worry how long their prosperity will last (164).
Occupy Wall Street Movement Sonya L. Hames BUS 309 Prof. Allen Strayer University November 4, 2012 The Occupy movement’s power comes from a simple moral message: It’s wrong to demolish the world of health and hopes of others. We called the Occupy movement the source of the crises of our time. Wall Street banks, big corporations, and others among the 1% are claiming the world’s wealth for themselves at the expense of the 99% and having their way with our governments. The Occupy Wall Street didn’t start by just demanding change; it also transformed how the 99% see themselves. Many people felt shame when they couldn’t find a job, pay their debts, or keep their homes from being taken was a political
The athlete who receives their degree will not have a proper education and the proper skills to make it in the real world. I believe that these organizations are robbing this from these people. Troy Vincent and Johnette Howard could not of said it better, “The fundamentals of our academic institutions is for someone to get a quality education and when the focus is not on this the whole model is broken.” The external pressures that influence these organizations are relieved by giving in and providing them with what they want by taking away their student athletes education. It is about winning losing and not about educating these individuals. The institutions have financial obligations, someone is getting paid and it is not the college student.
The NCAA and its opponents for paying college athletes are of the opinion that paying student will bring in corruption, exploitation and disarray to collegian sports, while other are of the mindset that the price of a college education is enough. According to the College Board, average total costs for 2009-2010 were $35,636 at private universities and $15,213 for in-state students at state colleges (College Cost$ Gone Wild, 2010). While the NCAA and opponents for paying student-athletes is firm in their beliefs, they have little ethical or moral ground to stand. It is true that in today's economy, a college education is very expensive and unachievable for some, but when compared to the dollars the athletes generate annually there is no comparison. Speaking with the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs at the University of Rhode Island, Earl N. Smith III, the questioned was posed, "should collegian athletes be paid for their services while representing their universities?"
