English forum topic
One of the newer forum topic for my English class is " College for Every One?" because I thought is was putty fun to do I decided to share all the Youthvoices members. The following are the questions that we have to answer, and also my responds.
Is a four year college for everyone? Why or why not? What other options should be available for high school students during and after high school? Should a person’s level of success be measured by the college they attended or what they have accomplished in life? Explain. Also, does providing an option that does not include college after high school mean that educational standards will decrease and we are selling students short? Explain.
Depending on who you are as a student to determent is fore years of college is right for you. If someone who only been to an American school all their life; what is the problem that they will had going to a four year college? College in America are a lot easier to get in, then a college that is in China; where only the truly best when to college. I personally think there is no one better thing to do than going to college after high school. I mean it is true that many jobs don’t need a person to get a degree in from a college, as pointed out in “bureau of Labor Statistics,” but who knows what might change in this competitive world after some year. As we see more globalization in corporation the chance of any one finding a job in these places without a college degree is highly unlikely. Life is long for those who work long hours with little pay, and there is no one that can guarantee to me that the job I’m having right now is not going to need a college degree 20 years later.
A person’s level of success shouldn’t n be measure by the college they attended but fater by the accomplishments they had in life. A person who went to Columbia University is sure very able, but going to a well known university is truly an accomplishment that they had in life. By definition someone’s accomplishment is going to weight more than the university they went to, because accomplishments are what matters, is why we go to college- why we even bother with school, why I’m responding to this forum
Providing an option that does not include college after high wouldn’t mean that educational standards will decrease and we are selling students short. Since I don’t come to school because is my only option. For me I’m just looking at a easier life in the long term, and I’m sure that many had the same reason. Whether school is an option or not many cannot afford to miss it.
