If I had a freedom of choice when I was eighteen, I would not be writing this critique, because I would not be in college. But now that I have grown up and did some thinking I want to stay and get my degree. I feel that kids should at least try college, learn and see a couple of things and then decide whether they should stay or go. Generally, parents without a college education are the ones who put the most emphasis on their kids going to college and making something of themselves, in order to have a better life then they had. The author then goes on to challenge her own ideas by saying that college does prepare you for a job that you actually might like doing, and that is what most Americans want.
The most important in my case and many low income students is trying to attend college and being able to pay without going into debt. I find myself, since 2010, hearing the same stories of previous college graduate, who have gone into debt by the time they reached their sophomore year of college. Excited to venture out into the “college life,” I begin to notice that paying for college isn’t like paying a couple of fees in high school. Although college has brought many advantages to our society, paying for it hasn’t. By the age of fourteen we enter a whole different atmosphere, to than find out that right as we’re getting comfortable we have to leave our high school life and start fresh in college, but we notice that college is just like high school, except this time around we have to pay to get an education in a “free” country.
Is there too much pressure on teenagers to go to college? There is a lot of pressure on this generation of teenagers to go to college, because we are use to hearing the saying “you need to graduate high school, so you can go to college to get you a good job.” Personally I agree with this saying, because there are plenty of successful people in this world with a college education, but it takes a lot of hard work just to prepare for college. For example, having to take SAT or ACT to maintain a certain score for a school to even consider your acceptance. Being financially stable, if not prepare to find scholarships and prepare essays just to obtain the scholarships. Growing up in a household where your parents want you to do better than they did, because they didn’t get a college education.
Without fruitful graduation rates, there wouldn't be open door for development in this nation. College matters on the grounds that the fate of our nation relies upon the researchers all colleges deliver. In spite of the fact that drop out rates increment every year in America, application rates are likewise expanding on the grounds that graduating secondary school understudies feel the need the go to college. Albeit a few people may went to college in light of the fact that their companions are or their parents did, college would turnout be able to be an entire accomplishment for a few, or a total catastrophe for others. College matters to the development and improvement of any general public.
Most of us would agree that college is one of the most exciting, yet most challenging times of our lives. It is typically our first time living away from home for an extended period of time. When I went away to college, I was eager to embrace the next chapter of my life because it was something life-changing that I had yet to experience. However, entering college was also scary for me because nobody handed me a “how to survive college” guidebook. I feel that everyone should be given a book full of tips and tricks that outline the ups and downs that lie ahead throughout our college experience, so that we can maximize our time in school and reach our full potential.
The essay starts off with Murray saying of course more people be encouraged to go to college then countering with a yes and no to the question. He agrees that yes getting a education is important but majority of people are going for what they should have learned years before reaching the college level. The way people see college as a way to be success doesn't sit well with him as he gives many reasons to why this is false. The statement "college is seen as a open sesame to a good job and desirable way for adolescents to transition to adulthood." proves this point.
Once a student high school years begin to close or the individual completes high school, question begin arising; “what are your plans when you graduate” or “what college do you plan on attending?” College most definitely has its pros and cons, but in the end college can be a favorable investment. The most difficult decision after graduation is deciding what to do after high school. After graduation there is a whole world at the tip of their fingertips; Now it is the time to decide where you actually fit in. College is the choice many parents and teacher 's hope for the student to choose. Many students struggle getting accepted into college, financial aid, student loans, and more.
Preparing for college starts well before senior year in high school. The primary purpose of a high school is to get students to go to college. The purpose of going to college is to gain work-related skills and knowledge on the career path a student takes which will eventually be their future. Also, students are investing a lot of money to attend colleges, so they count on high school to prepare them for what they are going to expect in college. For some the transition from high school to college could be difficult because they don 't have the right skill set that they need for college which they should 've to learn back in high school.
Is college worth it ? why should someone go to college ? Most people think college is the only logical option to a successful well paying future, that may or may not be true. In this essay I will be talking about the rhetorical situations of 3 authors each from different texts and a debate that all discuss this topic is college worth it. “Are Too Many People Going to college” by Charles murray, “What is college for” by Gary gutting “University 's Undergraduate Learning outcomes” by the textbook, and the debate “Are Too Many Kids Going To College”.
When we are young, we all have our own unique dreams and aspirations for what we wish to do when we are “older.” As we grow older, we begin to realize that some of our dreams are unattainable, while others are able to achieve their dreams. Whether one is the first person or the latter, we are spoon-fed the idea of attending college. We all hear how college is our “gateway to success,” and how “our entire lives depend on college.” Pressures bear down on high school students, telling them that they must attend college to be capable of anything in life. But people do not realize the detriments that are also associated with attending college. Students should not be pushed to attend colleges as there could be several factors that play in a student’s
