Who gained from this was our K-12 reform programs (Department. of Education, 2012). If this was so, then why are most of our programs being shut down? It seems like we do not get the full story of what is going on with the program budget and were is all of the money going. They are always raising college tuition to help pay for different programs but, it seems that they are not focusing on the programs for the diverse students that are here in the United States.
A state lottery is much more than jackpots and making millionaires; furthermore, if a lottery were created, a percentage of the profit would help fund the Hawaii State Department of Education. Hawaii’s education system is currently failing, cuts are being made across the state, and the Governor has imposed furlough Fridays to reduce budget costs. The state needs every extra dollar it can get right now, and contributions from a lottery system could clearly benefit these budgetary constraints. The lack of casinos in Hawaii has affected tourism statistics. With most of the
Dear Honorable Titian: I understand the House of Representatives of the United States has just passed a bill which would do away with federal grants to college students. I am currently enrolled in college and depend greatly on the grants I receive. These grants allow great opportunity, for not just me, but for many other students as well. Taking them away would cause problems in several areas. The passage of the “Pick the Public’s Pocket No More” bill would lower college application rates, lower college graduation rates, and lower our country’s number of new college graduates for open positions in the work force.
Mollie Russell Jan. 26 2015 ENG101 How do you feel about Obama proposing that students should have the opportunity to attend community college for free for two years? I feel that this is a very controversial topic and it can go either way. In my opinion, having free community college for students is a good opportunity, but there need to be certain requirements for these students. People can take advantage of this, and by having requirements it stops people from doing that. I have four requirements that need to be met including, 3.0 GPA or higher, 18 or higher on the ACT, 95% attendance, and a high school diploma.
DO NOT overspend. While you’re in college most likely you are going to using your own things like your own credit, debit and everything else. While it’s tempting you can’t let it get to you (the overspending). Remember your using your credit and what better way to build it than in college. Building your credit starts in college if you begin to buy all these things you can’t afford and turn around and not have the ability to pay them off at the end of the month then you’re your credit will begin to decline and that’s not good.
When Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson was asked his plans for student loans and grants, he replied “My plans don't include doing anything when it comes to student loans. The reason for the higher cost in higher education rests with the fact that there are those student loans available. Because those loans are guaranteed, kids are graduating from college, literally strapped with [the equivalent of] a home mortgage. I'm a believer in free markets.” (Gary Johnson Issues)Gary Johnson suggest that if student loans did not exist--tuition would be a lot lower because colleges and universities want to deliver their product, and if
If you had answered yes to any of these then you are most likely in the category of the people struggling to pay for college education for your kids or yourself. Middle class income families are hit the hardest as they usually do not qualify for grants to help pay for tuition unless you were laid off work. People who got laid off get grants to cover school tuition, books
Publishers put out so many new editions that it makes it nearly impossible to buy used books or sell your books at the end of the semester. This continuous distribution of editions is a way to force students and professors into buying new books (Pressler E01). I believe that a limit should be set on the number of editions that a publisher puts out decade. Unless there has been a dramatic innovative discovery that must be documented, a textbook a publisher should not have to release a new edition. A study was conducted to find out the time between the average new edition release.
In September of 2010, North Carolina State University revised a policy that imposes a tuition surcharge of 50% on students who take more than 140 credit hours to complete a baccalaureate 4-year degree program. Other Universities use similar policies to this one, and while it has a couple of obvious benefits, the principle cons of this concept strongly outweigh the pros. This policy constricts a student’s pursuit of education at its core. This policy makes it financially difficult for a student to change his or her course of study, and strictly limits the amount of flexibility one has if they decide to switch majors at any point during there time in school. At NC State, incoming freshmen are required to declare a major prior to the first day
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?"
