The truancy policy in many states is different. In Ohio, students that have fifteen unexcused absences will not be promoted to the next grade. In Georgia, however, students that have ten unexcused absences will lose their driver's license. "We know [truancy is] a problem in Georgia and directly impacts the long-term growth of students and their future earning potential. Workers without a high school diploma earn about $21,000 a year in Georgia, compared to $26,000 for those with a diploma and $43,000 from college graduates," one administrator said.
Federal Student Loan tended to be the lowest-cost loans, an easy choice. At the early age around 19th Century, American College Students graduated with a credit balance of zero. During 1960s and 1980s, the four year of college cost was around 4,000 dollars, which mostly the government loan programme used to cover it. Contrasting it in todays’ educational system and after the economy Downturn College students are relying on bank to get credit cards loan for their tuition. Is on the other word saying to forcing the student in credit debt, almost 90 percent of students carried loan balance more than $7000, not just that, but besides that they have to pay for the textbooks, school supplies, for food in campus cafeteria and
How a 40-year-old with a third grade education could have his children apply and would be granted amnesty through the sponsorship of his children. Arguments like these are raised by people who are opposed to this bill. The main argument is the cost this bill would hand down to taxpayers. Estimates we found on the Center for Immigration Studies website show roughly 1.038 million new students at public institutions of higher learning. This would translate to a cost of 6.2 billion dollars a year for each year these students are
State Lottery Billions of dollars is gained from lottery ticket sales. Also half the money gained is used for state funding. Money schools need but can not receive, they can get from money gained in lottery ticket sales. Some states also have a program where money gain from lottery ticket sales will help send kids to college. Over 850,000 students have been sent to college through this program and about $3 billion has been spent since the program began in the 1990s.
Suicide had become China's fifth most common cause of death. The number of Chinese students graduating from college has tripled in the last 5 years form 1.5 million to 4.1 million. That means with so many people graduating that means there are 2 million graduates with costly diplomas and no job. At a to Beijing kindergarten, th students must know pi to 100 digits by the age of 3. Many of the young kids in China use the Internet as an escape from reality.
Today’s College Students Lack Empathy Jeanna Bryner, editor, LiveScience.com May 28, 2010 College students today are less likely to “get” the emotions of others than their counterparts 20 and 30 years ago, a new study suggests. Specifically, today’s students scored 40 points lower on a measure of empathy than their elders did. The findings are based on a review of 72 studies of 14,000 American college students conducted between 1979 and 2009. “We found the biggest drop in empathy after the year 2000,” said Sara Konrath, a researcher at the University of Michigan’s Institute of Social Research. The study was presented this week at the annual meeting of the Association for Psychological Science in Boston.
With the economy in the shape it is, it makes those full-time jobs seem like only part-time jobs. “We are spending more money fighting poverty than ever before, yet poverty is up,” said Michael D. Tanner, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute. “Clearly we are doing something wrong.”( Poverty Stats Show the Damage) Specialists say the government needs to rethink their calculations of poverty. According to Carol Morello’s article, “Poverty Stats Show the Damage,” about 44 million Americans (one in seven) lived in homes at the poverty level. For a family of four that level is $22,000 annually or less.
According to a article from www.classroom.synonym.com "The Atlantic reported the unemployment rate for people with college degrees as 3.7 percent versus 12 percent for people with high school diplomas. Also, employed high school graduates have a lifetime earning potential of almost half of college degree holders". Which backs my choice to further my education because in the long run without a college degree supporting yourself or family will be much harder.” I've read in article from www.blackenterprise.com "A recent survey published by Lorin Hitt (professor, Wharton School, UPenn), Prasanna Tambe (Stern School, NYU) and Matt Ferguson (CEO, CareerBuilder) found that employers are upping the ante when it comes to education requirements. More than 2,700 employers were included in a survey that found that nearly 18% of private-sector companies increased their educational requirements over the past five years. Similarly, 32% of employers say they’re hiring college-educated workers for jobs traditionally filled by people with high school diploma.
(Misra, 2000) Background Attending college can have a profound impact in one’s life from a personal, social and vocational perspective. (Astin, 1993) “Of the nearly 2.4 million students who entered higher education for the first time in 1993, over 1.5 million will leave their first institution without receiving a degree. Of those, approximately 1.1 million will leave higher education altogether, without ever completing either a two or a four-year degree program.” (Tinto, 1993, pg 1) Only about fifty percent of high school graduates who enter four year degree colleges complete their degrees. (Kuh et al., 2005) Furthermore, other research shows that the majority who drop out of college leave at the end of their first semester. (Tinto, 1982) Major factors that contribute to a student’s difficult first year transition may allow for insight into the new student’s experience during this period.
Even though the drop out rate has been decreasing annual the dropout rate is still too high at 7% in 2011. (nces.ed.gov/fastfacts.com) While there are many reasons for dropping out of high school there are some factors that I have found to be more apparent in the high school drop out. Several decades worth of studies have documented that dropouts are more likely to be poor, minority, and male and also come from a single parent family. However students who have those characteristics are more likely to drop out but it is educational reasons over personal reasons that pose the more realistic reason why students drop out of high school. Students with poor academic performance and educational disengagement prove to be the main reason students drop out of high school.
