Getting a higher education in America is necessary even though it is a bit too costly. People do not find college necessary. These people believe college is not for them and are looking for jobs that do not require a college degree. What these people do not realize is that even if a certain job does not require a college degree, it is still necessary for raising the amount of money you can earn by going to college for that specific job. Some people find it easy to get a job they love without earning that college degree.
Many believe that a college education will ultimately lead to a higher income, but according to Bird, “there is no real evidence that the higher income of college students is due to college” (376). Since there is no clear correlation between the two, students should not attend college if the only reason they are attending is to earn a higher income. They should not risk taking out a lot of loans, and graduating with a large amount of debt. Overall, I think that college is not a good investment because not everyone needs a college degree for the career they intend to pursue, and investing in college is not worth risking being in debt after taking out large amounts of
Essentially, college education is necessary, but not all people should attain a bachelor’s degree as there are alternative routes through which to gain experience in tune with market demands. The cost of college education is one of the deterrents to attaining degrees, and the likely increase in cost over time will lead to higher dropout rates. The value placed on a bachelor’s degree is misplaced because it is no guarantee of success in life. Thus, attaining experience complimented with vocational training should also be on the agenda in educational reforms because not all people can fit in the college systems.
Many people think that having a degree is worthless because of the debt that you may go into; but that degree will help you have a better future. Having a college degree is worth the investment if it’s important to you. Education should never be a privilege for the few, but a basic right for all who want to better themselves. A reason why people choose
If they are not motivated in putting their mind and time there is no point to force him or her to study in college. They will not study, but in turn, it will just be a waste of four years of time. It might seem that university is a good path for some people, but not for everyone. Some fields, require it and many occupations would be extremely difficult to have and function without it. What should be promoted nowadays should be either college or how to find a job suitable for you, but many argue that it should be not one or the other.
Part of the problem is that society tells students that they need to go to college to be successful. That is definitely not true. Students don’t always need to go to college for a few reasons. First of all, for some student, college hinders, rather than helps them develop their skills. For some other people, going to college is a waste because they have a skill that doesn’t need a college education such as a trade.
For some students becoming famous is success. A four year degree does not guarantee success. A four year degree will not make a student wealthy or famous. It depends on how passionate the student is about a par... ... middle of paper ... ...piness, whether or not he/she likes the job. Finally, I will conclude that every student should not get a four year degree because each student is different and that their unique abilities which they can apply to alternative fields will take them to success and not year degree will.
Menand’s ideology on reconstructing education to better fit a variety of people while simultaneously stating that college is not essential to succeed. This essay provides a great amount of information to not only convey his message, but to persuade his reader to follow his ideology on college. While Delbanco only states three reasons as to why a college education is needed. Though many Americans seem to follow a similar trend of attending a higher education after graduating from secondary there are many examples of successful people who never went to college. Both passages displayed that whether one decides to go to college or not, they must first decide what they wish to do in life.
There aren’t many jobs that accept people with a high school diploma as their highest form of education. Employers want people that know what they’re doing, and so does our society. In order for people to go into the career field they want, they need to go to college to learn everything that comes with that career. Without a college degree, it would be close to impossible to get a high paying job. So, is it worth going to college even though it’s pricey?
It is not some kind of savior to students that want to get in to expensive higher educated schools. It is a sort of disappointment for them considering that even after all the money that they are granted based off the income that they are ‘labeled’ they still cannot afford it. It is unfair to have students reconsider their career choices based on if they can be able to pay their way into college or not. Income should not be the deciding factor in if a student should go to school or not. Higher education is more valuable that people prioritize it to be.
