Kendrick Watts Moyer English 1020- 026 10 February 2014 Is College Really for Me…?? In the essay “Is College for Everyone” by Pharinet, discusses that it’s not mandatory to attend a college institution to obtain a well-paying job. In the beginning of the essay Pharient refrains to a statement that students hear every day, “You want get anywhere without your education (635).” This is a statement that many teachers and parents repeatedly preach to their child since they were kindergartener’s. Pharinet also explains in a reasonable tone, that having a college degree doesn’t always bring success in most students’ life. Mainly because, students are not properly preparing themselves to what seems to be the “real world”.

While her mother was concerned more about the economical aspect of life, the father was preoccupied by the spirituality of his family, about conserving customs and traditions: ‘ Father pushed his hand from his arm.’ (Yezierska, 63) In fact, this conservative attitude of her father and the constant differences they had concerning social and moral values is what made Sara more and more determined to leave home and become an American. Running away from home was Sara’s first step towards becoming a ‘person’. But in order to complete herself as one, she knows she first must be educated. She succeeds in getting herself into college, but she soon finds out that there are many discrepancies between her – an immigrant, and her colleagues – genuine Americans. She finds herself longing to be one of them: ‘Even in school I suffered, because I was not like the rest.’ (Yezierska,
Sara is not going to let her father abuse her like he did the other girls. Sara runs away, rents a room from a lady, gets a job, and goes to school studying to get into college.

If the teachers didn’t care about their education, how would you expect students to stay in school when the teachers don’t care whether they attend or not. However, Sam was lucky to have Carla, the counselor at Seton Hall, who did more things than she should have to motivate the doctors to succeed in college. “She feared that if one of us dropped out of the program, she risked losing all three of us. She vowed not to allow that to happen, and she became our angel, guiding, protecting, and pushing us as we traveled
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. Romney, the GOP nominee, was talking to students in Ohio and told them if you want to go to college to just borrow money from their parents. That statement along with the GOP opposing the Presidents student loan reform shows that the party is not connected with average American. Also part of the education cuts was to limit funding for public schoolteachers. Finding and keeping good teachers cost money.

The thesis of Mary Sherry’s essay is that teachers and parents need to take further action to help their students earn their diplomas. The main points Sherry expresses in her essay are that students barely have any motivation to focus in school, how students are not satisfied with their academic skills, and ways that teachers can get their students to study.

I agree with what she said because I am a recent high school graduate who would always want to be everywhere but school. Another main
