Carefully examining the controversial issues of the educational system has led one to believe that if students were more empowered in accessing a better quality education, they would be more active in achieving the highest standard. Unfortunately, adolescents fall into the stereotype of everyday life. If stereotypes of under represented groups are always associated with lack of achievement, then they will eventually adopt the idea of under achievement. Around the world, stereotypes are hindering teenagers from overcoming the odds and being the person they would like to be. Parenting and schooling are the main sources of the morals one will adopt and use to progress in life.
It is the belief of many, including Delbanco, that the system is unfair to those of low incomes and tough situations, that there needs to be some form of alternative payment method if the system is going to stay the same way, and that the current financial and post secondary educational system is broken and requires a complete overhaul. One of the largest deterrents of young people pursuing some form of higher education is the absolutely ridiculous price that it costs to attend such an institution. A limiting facto... ... middle of paper ... ...it stands now it seems only to serve the investors and high officials within the university instead of the students it was made to. Very few can afford even fewer can full price. In order for this to change there needs to be a total reconstruction of the system; specifically the one proposed by Delbanco seeing as it promotes both learning and equality.
It is not saying that is not worth going to college; but, surely, it was not as good as was in the 80s. Another important fact to be clear about is that degrees does not guarantee success, people do. In order to be a successful in your professional life it is very important to have a university degree, but it is also very important to show responsibility, commitment and character in order to succeed. In this time, millions of people are spending lot of money in university, which is good, but also we have to take in mind the different aspects that contribute to success.
“For one, the policy would certainly lead to overcrowding of public universities, and by extension the degradation of the quality of education offered. Paying students, who are deeply invested in their studies, may be placed into overcrowded classes—or worse, get locked out of them. Whatever the result, free tuition would lead to limited capacity at public universities, and in turn, lower-quality public education” (Eichen, 2015). Allowing university to be tuition free would lead to a larger number of people applying, backing institutions into a corner as they weren’t prepared for something like this. The reality is that these colleges should be selective to some extent because their campus wouldn’t be able accommodate everyone.
The U.S. Government should not pay for two years of college tuition for every citizen who graduates from an American High School. The U.S. government debt is already in the trillions and owed to other countries, the kindergarten through twelfth grade public educational system is still disastrous, not to mention what the Universities would do if the government gave away education; This could not possibly add up to a good recipe for “free” education. The public education system is already terrible, which the government runs, their impact on higher education could be catastrophic. The only reason high school even matters to most children in the U.S. today is to get into a better college, which makes elementary and middle school relevant. Private school children are preferred by colleges because they offer a healthier education.
This education reform affects everyone, but it hits those on the bottom of the economic curve the most, which just so happens to be the first-generation students and the undocumented students who cannot afford to go on to a university.

College is the chance to become who you want to be; unfortunately not everyone is given that chance. Works Cited Chin, Aimee and Chinhui Juhn.

Students have all heard the triumphs of college drop outs such as Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerburg. They’ve inspired a generation of students to question the value of a college degree. However, these Cinderella stories are not the rule…they are the exception, and apply only to the very driven and very lucky few. The chances of such a success story happening to a high school graduate are slim.
Children in the midst of Crisis Our education system is one of the most respectable, reputable and sought after commodity's in our society, but it is also the most over crowded, discriminatory, and controversial system ever established. Most people yearn for a higher education because it's what's expected in this society in order to get ahead. It means a better job, more money, power, prestige and a sense of entitlement. But this system has let down the children that are supposed to benefit from it. Education discriminates against minorities, and poorer class students are not expected nor encouraged to attain a higher education.
It was a very toxic community to grow up in. This affected the youth in the community by not projecting their potential into their minds. To have a well-educated populace, we need to make sure we graduate well-rounded youth after grade school. I believe this can be achieved by following common-core guidelines, while also striking their creativity within the subjects so that they are retaining information, not only memorizing it. I will discuss my beliefs on the roles of the teacher, the children as learners, the curriculum, and the purpose of schools in society.
Community college students aren’t benefitting from this formula because the split is drastic. Even though the formula was established to dispense a minimum annual fund it did not create a fair distribution of money. As Ould said, “the way government funds schools is a mess” (13). Not enough money is going into classrooms in order to measure up to the demand of classes. Tuition fees have also increased so that colleges could get themselves more money.
