Because members of high social classes tend to be better educated, because of their various resources, they have higher incomes and are more likely able to provide educational advantages, for not only themselves, but to their children as well. Education is a major component in today’s society of social class. Researching this topic, I already knew the answer but was still very interested in learning more about it. My hometown is not the best and looking back to my graduating class, only three quarter of my class went to college. It is still a good number but I know some people who did not continue their education and these people have so much potential but they really need to want to receive a higher education.
I’m taking additional loans to pay for my education, but in the end it will be worth having the better job.” Receiving a college education has now become a vital part of being able to succeed in today’s work force. Paying for college will continue to be a struggle for many, yet hopefully within time the government will take a larger role in paying for students to continue their educations and more schools will continue to grow with their financial services. “Any willing person who wants a higher education should be able to receive one,” Northeastern sophomore Filippa Petruccelli said. “Money should not be an issue in wanting to learn more. Without students continuing to grow, our country all together will not continue to succeed; our government needs to put that more in consideration, especially when denying us for financial aid.”
Did they not work full-time? What? Why were you so poor?" Well my dad; even though was a very hard working man, he did work at a dead end job and my mom could not find a full-time job until I was thirteen, and neither of them made a whole lot of money. Now I always thought that if the government would raise the minimum wage it would help my parents out.
In other words, if we can help those children succeed in the school and society, they will produce less problems to the society, and we can build up a better environment for everyone. Furthermore, though people pay high tax, they still share the limited resources of the society and the country; they do not pay all what they should pay. There are the rich and poor in the society, and it somehow creates positive and negative cycles. That is, the rich can get better education and have good opportunities to succeed in the society.
Although college can be scary for some people because of the costs or the classes and the new experience, it would later be for their advantage. Some people only go to college because that is what their parents want, but they should be going because they want to go and they want to learn and want to get a higher paying job in the future. With less people going to college, there will be less money going to the colleges... ... middle of paper ... .... Johnson, Terrence L. "Planning for College Costs." Black Enterprise 04 1997: 77-84.

Free education must be responsible and funded by the U.S. government because it will help students focus on their studies, and encourage them to work harder in school. Even thought many people think that education must be free, it is very important for many reasons such as the economy, quality of education, and value of a college degree. Free education can effect in the economy. If we spend billion on free college education there is opportunity cost of higher taxes or less spending in other place. Maybe, there is a greater social benefit from providing vocational training.

In the essay, “New Directions” by Maya Angelou, Annie, a hard-working woman, says, “I looked up the road I was going and back the way I come, and since I wasn’t satisfied, I decided to step off the road and cut me a new path” (123). Just as Annie; my dad decided enough was enough. My parents used to only buy necessary things mainly because they couldn’t afford the expensive material things. Throughout the years, he would wake up everyday at different hours; tiredness could be seen in just one glance. My dad was a part of the blue collar, or the “working” class for a lot of my childhood.

One might ask why would someone want to spend money to receive more education and miss out on more years of work that they could’ve performed? For many, it is so they can receive more salary for the jobs that they will have later in life, also so that they can get training for their wanted career. The cost of attending college is high and continues to rise without indications of decreasing. The rising cost has many benefits such as earning more pay, but it also has its disadvantages such as the debt that is accumulated from student loans. Not everyone can afford to drop down thousands of dollars and attend school for a few more years.
