I would never had made it to college if I gave up on education because my senior year I felt really lazy and I didn’t know what to... ... middle of paper ... ...tion is sometimes taken for granted because I feel like I don’t need to learn a certain subject in college but yet I need it to involve in the real world when getting a job. To me education is what prepares me for a career job the people who are hiring looked for the ones that are open minded and can easily work with their surroundings. Education is important in many ways it helps us become better people to be able to show academic skills learn throughout many years of school. I feel that when I’m looking for internships people look for my background and how experienced I am when it comes to programming. I think if I overachieve my education in computer science I could be able to be successful like Reyna Grande on how she was able to pursue her dream career as a writer.
Sandra thought that her father’s idea was overall a good idea in her eyes. She felt as if she could do whatever she had wanted as long as she was successful in the end. Although, my father would never say to me that college is the time for me to find my husband, he would tell me that college is the time to figure out what you want to do for the rest of your life. Many fathers have a specific destiny in life they want their daughter to fulfill in a specific amount of time. I believe that my father’s destiny for me is to find a degree that makes me happy, and to have a goal in life rather than to just live in the moment.
It is along the lines of it but not exactly what you look for by then they try to convince you of another branch of the career that will make more money or push for better success when in reality it will only keep you in school longer. “Teacher, engineers, and other I’ve talked to said that on the job they rarely use what they learned in school” (Bird 378). Meaning that it is actually quite true that many of the courses taken throughout these years of college are in fact pointless and doesn’t fulfil the actual requirement for the job field they are aspiring for. Making it seem as if they are just paying for courses to stay busy until there are job openings in the field in which they are looking for.

As David Leonhardt states in his article, It College Worth It? Clearly, New Data Say, “ When experts and journalists spend so much time talking about the limitations of education, they almost certainly are discouraging some teenagers from going to college...”. In spite this argument, I believe the purpose of college is to prepare me for a good, well- paying job when I graduate. Since I came from a family background in which girls are always on the bottom and can’t get out of the tradition in boys zone. My brothers don’t support me with school.
In today’s world, many will argue that going to college isn’t necessary and others will say it’s a necessity. There are many people who don’t have a college degree and manage to succeed in life, but nowadays it’s definitely important. There is so much competition to get hired and people are now required to have a bachelor’s. At least, they give you priority if they see you have an education. 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.
Parents usually pay for their children’s education in college; but some parents may think that it is not worth it to pay. According to the author of “No: Let’s Make Sure Kids Get the Most From Their Education”, said “the more money parents paid toward their children’s education, the worse their academic performance (Herman). Even so, parents should pay for their children’s education in college, as it would give parents three main wonderful results: parents will feel good when they see their children’s success, children may show appreciation to their parents for helping them so much, and children won’t have any loans after finishing college. When parents see their children’s success, parents will feel good for helping their children do their best. If parents don’t decide to help, their children may start working, and working is a drawback.
People define humility as weakness, timidity, or lack of leadership, yet no one is right all the time. America thrives off of individuality. The freedom to be my own person or focus on my dreams is what draws people in; however, the lack of meekness is what my downfall becomes because my parents told me to focus on myself and not others. I worked hard on who I want to be, and in high school my teacher ingrained the concept of standing up for what I believe. Now that I am in college, all the professors and college staff tell me is that this is the time for me to make dreams, and opportunities come alive no matter the cost.
I was always taught that if I did not stay in school, then I would not be successful. In some cases, people get lucky and find a decent job where they can live comfortably or at least out of poverty. But generally that is not the circumstance. Staying in school is one of the first most important choices you make because finishing with a diploma is the beginning of your career path. Students have numerous reasons for not completing school but there are just as many to stay in school but chose not to realize them.
I wanted to do something to make them both happy, and that was furthering my education and persuing a college degree. Now being in college, it is hard for me to pay for school. I have no help from my parents because since they separated they struggle to get back on their feet. So I am forced to take out subsidized and unsubsidized loans, which I wanted to avoid, but sometime you have to bite the bullet to go after what you really want. In life, seeing my parents struggle makes me just want to break down and cry, quit school and get a job in my local town and help them out.
She has become so successful and my drive is to become as successful as her. My mother would have loved the opportunity to have gone to college, but she was not able to because it was beyond her and her parents reach financially. College was not a dinner table conversation; simply because her parents did not attend college and had no idea how to proceed once she graduated from high school. My parents know and understand the value of education, and that is why they sacrificed their own time to make sure that my future holds brighter prospects and more security than their own. They have invested their lives trying to make their children successful.
