Encouragement plays a huge role to a student’s success in college, without any type of encouragement some students may not be committed. Lack of parental involvement is an issue that most college students have to deal with. It becomes difficult for students to know how to deal with challenges related to school when being the first generation in their family to experience college. This... ... middle of paper ... ...he absence of attributes that a well-organized and motivated student obtain. Most students enter college with high intentions of being successful, which in time turns into a whole different negative outlook during their college experience.
In our educational system today many students tend to drop out early due to the fact of lack of motivation or they can’t be in school anymore. Charles Murray, author of “Are Too Many People Going to College?” states the importance of the educational system in America. He has different viewpoints on whether certain people should attend college or not. The lack of interest in school and learning is playing a major effect on the student’s decisions to attend class. However, many students just attend college for a semester to prove to other people that they can survive college for a small amount of time.
For example, low motivation comes from people around the person who lower their interest about college or anything. “Also, many students get affected by their friends who always have bad grades, and who dropout from school because they give up on it and they make other students do that too and not believe in themselves (Complex sentence)”. In addition, the low motivation could also come from the students parents who are not always supporting them and not encouraging them to do better in school, and that might be the reason students make their decision to have bad grades and dropout from college. Also, the stress could affect students too as they mention in “Peterson 's Blog” by Brian Pivik, “Going to college is stressful, there is no doubt about it. If you are just graduating high school, then the amount of coursework mixed with the personal life and new sense of independence will get to you.
Not everyone drop out because they lack the determination to finish, instead they run into other obstacle while equipped with the motivation. Those of which are trying to regulate the balance of work and school, unexpected family problems, and financial problems. Unprepared students sign up for school because they think a degree is a “Pass “ to the middle class, trying to get one step closer to their goal but drops out of college. The first cause of students dropping out of college is due to the fact that they are unable to balance their work and school together. Students who are working while going to school can often “bash” more than the government’s acceptable hours of work.
Should You Wait or Not When high school is over, that is the time students need to decide if they are going to start college right away or wait a year or two. Whichever choice they choose will affect their future. Students should not put off their education for a long period of time. This will only hurt the students because they will start to forget things they had learned in high school. If they wait to go to school, it could also put a delay on their career.
Parenthood is very important in a child’s life. Many parents don’t know th... ... middle of paper ... ...to finish college and get a degree, but because of financial difficulties their goal remains a dream. College dropout rates are increasing every year for many different reasons. Whether it’s how the kids were raised by their parents or their not prepared enough for higher education. Another reason why students are dropping out of college today is because of the tremendous increase in tuition.
We all know that not having money, workload, and lack of support in college are reasons why most students dropout of college. Along with family problems and just the responsibility of being in college can make someone want to drop of college. For example, the Robinson family has the first child beginning to enter into college this upcoming fall. However, they do not want to put pressure on their child on over
College tuition is already at such a high cost that it would be very detrimental if a student were to change their mind, often leaving them in insurmountable debt. And, there is often this stigma about students taking a year off before they head off to college or university, this again adds the the pressure to attend post-secondary. Finally, I feel that having a high school student pick a possible future occupation while they are still not sure what it is that they want in life. A side note, many teachers tell me that you don’t go to college to have job security later in life, but rather that you go to college to learn skills; the opposite is so ingrained in my student head that I feel that I have to go to school so I don’t fail in life. With all of this going on, colleges are getting ever harder to gain admission to.
