You have these parents that take care of their kids throughout their life and provide them with everything that they need but when it comes to time that their kids want to go to fine colleges that is the one thing that they cannot do for them. The fact that mom and dad could not pay for college because they do not have that kind of money can be hard on the parents. Society cannot afford to lose these millions of potential students just because they are financially unable. Just because students cannot afford college does not mean that they have no potential at all. Most have what it takes to get through years and years of college to be successful.
The long waits and the unknowing is what take it toll on people and can affect the youngest of the family.

All the work that is put into their futures by their family is gone to waste because they are unable accomplish their goals.
Education is a very important need in our lives because people are able to achieve and strive for a better life style. When I was younger, my parents would always tell me to do good in school and I never understood what that really meant. As I was becoming older I realized that education is very important in my life because most people in my family didn’t go to college and they had to work whole day from nine A.M. to nine P.M. and I didn’t want that to happen to me. My parents had sacrifice their lives to move to America so that I could get an education because in Vietnam education wasn’t free and that would mean the people who had money would have education there. I’m proud to be in America because if I was in Vietnam I would have done same job as my parents did in America.

In addition, at the beginning of the episode Jeanna talks about why she enjoys using crystal meth. She said that it gave her a rush of energy, but that it also completely numbed her.
On the side of this job, I have always had a fun job to make a little extra money by work... ... middle of paper ... ...hool and work and life in general. I did not strive to do my best in high school and especially my dual enrollment classes. I was not ever thinking about my future and started not coming to classes. Once I accepted God in my life Junior Summer, all that changed. I realized I was on a negative path and God helped me turn my life around.
I was born into poverty even before I was even born. My way of life was set even before my existence. Growing up I was strongly encouraged to dedicate my energy into my school work. Knowing that someday all that hard work and dedication will one day pay off. It wasn’t until my senior year of high school when I realized the true importance of going on to college really was.
Each year in late spring thousands of young students are graduating from high school and are looking forward to begin college. Most students have chosen what college they are going to, have packed and are ready to go and accomplish their dreams. However, there are thousands of students that graduate each year, that have dreams as big as their classmates and will never know what it is like to attend to a college or even visit a college campus. But they have hope that their dreams can be accomplish by passing the Dream Act. There are many reasons why this law should be pass not only would it improve the economy by creating new jobs, but it will help undocumented students accomplish their dreams, and show what a great nation the Unites States is.
Even if Alex were to get financial help from his family, he would still feel the pressure to attain a job to reduce the stress about making financial ends meet. I also face similar challenges as Alex, in my situation I have had a lack of support. My mother is a single parent with a high school diploma being her highest degree of education. With the lack of financial income that comes with only having to rely on my mother income, she wanted me to start working to help her pay bills and other pending expenses. She understands why I am pursuing a college education, but also knows that with me working full time can help ease our financial stress, which if attending college will only increase our current expenses.
David Leonhardt “ For all the struggles that many young college graduates face, a four- year degree has probably never been more valuable”. I believe in this that we all are struggling in some way, but if we don’t give up and work hard for what we want then we will get for what we want. Occasionally I felt that I think I can’t even get up. But when I look what I have done to get this far and think about what my family, teachers and friends have said to be and trusting me. I told myself I can’t give up on school that easy.
The USA needs to start encouraging its citizens to go to trade schools because that is where the jobs that make good money are. A college degree used to be the only way to get a good paying job but times have changed and getting vocational training from a trade school is the best option many people have for earning a living. Education comes at a high price for this generation and not just financially. Going to college can give students plenty of debt with no promise of a job in return, which can set a student father back on their course of life. Young adults trying to start their lives by going to college encounter many setbacks.
