Early education programs such as, the Head Start program was on top of the list for budget cuts. That would affect the kick start to learning that has been around for generations of young learners to take advantage of. Most American families are in favor of having an early learning program in their community. Studies show that kids the kids that participate in an early learning program develop a greater aptitude for learning and are accepted to better universities. Seems like the GOP does not understand that even though the average family can’t afford to send their kids to a top tier university does not mean they do not want to take advantage of early learning.
Is College Worth it? Everyone in the United States wants to achieve the “American Dream”. People want to be able to provide a stable life for their families. A college education has been a must to grow in the work industry. But during this economic recession, college students have been having a difficult time staying in the college path, especially working class students.
Learning Against Grades In this society, students are encouraged to pursue a higher education after graduating from high school. Yet, each individual has a different reason for desiring to move on to college. Students attend college either because they want to increase their knowledge, get a decent paying job after college, or they just want to get the “college” experience instead of going on to the working force after high school. As a first-year college student, I pictured college to be a “… place for learning and growth…” (Jerry Faber, 387), but I was slightly wrong. Everyday I stress over earning a good grade in my classes, instead of being driven to learn the material of the course.
Rodrigo Cubedo WRT 101 December 4th, 2012 College: Is It Really Necessary? Go to college, get a degree, and find a well paying job. Everybody should be doing this, right? According to Charles Murray apparently not. Murray presented his book “Real Education: Four Simple Truths for Bringing America’s Schools Back to Reality.” (2008) Where he talks about his point of view on higher education; he doesn’t believe it is something everybody should be doing, since not everybody is prepared to attend college and struggle with all that is involved in the process of getting a B.A.
Unfortunately, taking a gap year is not for everybody. It takes a lot of self-motivation and a sense of direction in life. College offers structure for those who feel lost. Also, the gap year suits people that want to be business owners, entrepreneurs or those who plan to work at one corporation and just move up the ladder. In order to be a doctor, college is definitely the only option.
Our political leaders and Delbanco can both concur that a liberal education is important, but can both see eye to eye that it is what the future economy will be built off of. In our nation it has become more and more difficult for our citizens to attain this college degree, because it is becoming less and less affordable. Alongside both parties, most American’s can agree that a liberal education is important, but neither the Republican Party nor the Democratic Party have made any significant change to better the liberal education system. According to the Obama Administration, President Obama has “proposed incentives for states to maintain their commitments to higher education through a new $1 billion investment” (“Keeping Costs Down”), and Obama has failed to accomplish his proposal. Obama needs to manage the budget a bit more wisely, because the more funding put towards the liberal education system, the more our economy will flourish.
Advertisments and advertisers from for-profit colleges have different methods toward the students they target. Recruiters look for people who know very little about for-profit colleges. The people who are willing to give advertisers the time to listen and believe what they say are who they search for. Listening to a recruiter from a college makes people feel that they’re capable of being in college, in some way it boosts their self-confidence to make them feel just as smart as everyone else in college. Kayla Webley from Educational Financing shares her thoughts on the higher education policy, Low-income below poverty students ranging from 18 to 26 are who advertisers search for to bring into their school because of the student loans they will be piled on with.
College Should Be Free For All Students College too many students mean a higher education that leads to a bright future. Of course, there is challenging work that needs to be fulfilled over a period, in order to meet the expectations of living life in a certain way. However, the hard work put into the dream of attending a university has a possibility of not coming true due to the lack of unfortunate families, competition, and lastly government decision-making. A funded education is needed for every upcoming generation. In addition, a modern country needs highly skilled graduates of all kinds.
Mandating national service will help reduce national debt. High school graduates only have a vague idea of what they want to do. They spend the government’s money at an expensive four-year university where they ponder life and party instead of focusing on what they need to do with the rest of their lives. With this proposal of a mandatory service, these young adults would be able to mature over this time and also get an idea of what they would like to study further in
High Schools the opportunity to receive U.S. Residency) that many young adults have fought for over the past years. After this executive order passed, some argued that the future of this beloved country would be in danger but only time will tell the outcome of this new policy. Right now, it might be difficult to comprehend the different backgrounds of these people, but we must remember that different ethnicities enrich this culture and are part of the everyday life of every American. This is why it is almost impossible to act like they are just shadows that do not provide for the good of this nation. In order to provide this good there has to be a change.
