Higher education, Guarantees job?
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that education is the key to economic success. But what everyone knows is wrong. There are things education can’t do the notion that putting more kids through the university can restore mid class society we used to have is wishful thinking. It really begs a big question that “do young people in our country really require a higher education degree to succeed?” we all know Bill Gates who dropped out of college and it certainly didn’t hold him back. It’s no longer true that having a college degree guarantees a good job and it is becoming less true with each passing decade. A hard but true fact is that though people have a dream career in mind as they go through university. The dream may never come true. Some majors are less practical than others or a certain field may be extra competitive or perhaps a tragic life event happens that require you to take a job that you don’t necessarily go to school for. Many Iranian students go to a four year college to guarantee themselves for an ambitious career. However they may end up with jobs that never need to get a B.A degree in first place. I’ve experienced it myself. When I was a sophomore English major in translator training course in Rasht Azad University, I got married. I had to get a secure job so I decided to take an exam for employment in Bank. I was accepted both in the exam and interview while I hadn’t been graduated yet. They didn’t know that I’m a B.A student. They supposed me to have a diploma and it was ok for me .For many years I didn’t have such a right to present my B.A degree to get a higher salary. So I told myself what a waste of time it was! I’d always have a dream to be university professor rather than to be a banker. In our country, graduates having difficulty finding a job in their desired field. I was very lucky to find a secure job before I was graduated. In the other hand, there are some families who believe that “the...
The essay on the subject mainly focuses on the US perspective regarding highereducation in relation to income thereof. The highereducation in relation to higher income is a serious debate in the United States at the academia level since couple of years. Considering the rising un-employment rate and high cost on the graduate and PhD programs many people have serious observations whether or not to opt for the highereducation. Many people even after having Masters and PhD degrees do not find good jobs and are forced to work for less attractive jobs. In such scenario there arises a serious question whether highereducationguaranteeshigher income? In the following paragraphs the question has been analyzed by various directions.
Before analyzing the specific question, it is important to describe the highereducation. In the United States the highereducation is referred to as study carried out at the University level for graduate, masters and doctoral programs. The apparent objective of highereducation seems more knowledge. It is an established fact that technology has become the driving...
...Iran. Breaking stereotypes.
Iran is one of the world’s oldest continuous civilizations, with settlements dating back to 4000 B.C. Thus an eclectic cultural elasticity is defining characteristics of the Persian spirit .To best understand Iran, their related societies and their people, one must first attempt to acquire an understanding of their culture. Wander one of the many bazaars, and experience the organized chaos of sights, sounds, and smells that will tempt you at every turn. Discover the 2,500-year history of Persian carpets. Iranians have woven beautiful rugs for over 2,500 years. When creating rugs, Iranian weavers often make a mistake intentionally. They want to show their belief that “only God is perfect.” After oil, Iran’s second largest export commodity is carpets. Iran currently produces more rugs and carpets than all other countries in the world put together.
Marvel at the bridges and squares and other gathering places, and witness a thriving culture where people enjoy spending time together. Consider life under a theocracy, with no separation of church and state, where actions are closely controlled. Meditate at one of the mosques or temples, reflecting what daily spirituality means to this culture. Experience the history, the architecture, the ruins, and their inspiration. Take pleasure in the landscape, from grandiose mountains to high plateaus to desert valleys, baked in the sunlight and...
...The High Price of HigherEducation
In America's society today, students are expected to follow the path of day care, grade school, middle school, high school and hopefully college. Growing up in America today, the importance of education is stressed starting at the earliest stages of development. In a world with a competitive job market and with citizens who want to make the most money that they can, a collegeeducation is key in success. For some students, financing college is not a problem. Money should not be a factor in the student's decision-making process when choosing what school to attend, but unfortunately many people are unable to attend the university of their choice due to the high costs. Working through college is not always the best answer because this can have a negative effect on academic performance with the added stress. It is true that financial aid and loans are available, but it is sometimes much harder to take advantage of these than people realize. Although universities offer many forms of aid in paying for college, the continually increasing prices still make it impossible for many people to afford highereducation, and lowering prices would be effective in increasing the amount of people able to obtain a college degree.
In today's society, the average income for middle class families is $49,500 (Preliminary Estimates). This is only a little...
In the time I have spent in highereducation, I have noticed that educators generally encounter three categories of students. The first category, about 10 percent of the student population will always succeed because they have the attitude that failure is not an option. The second group, another 10 percent of the population, will inevitably fail, lacking the personal motivation and drive necessary to reach educational goals. Approximately 80 percent of students make up category three. A group full of bright minds that could lean toward either success or failure. This group will most significantly be impacted by changes and improvements in education. The differentiating factor in this group is that each student's response to the same question: "Is investing in my education really worth it?"
Some people are deterred from pursuing highereducation because of the price tag attached. Even though student loans are often available, the idea of repaying student loan debt, with high interest rates and low job prospects is a significant roadblock for many. For students with young families or those who have never considered post-secondary education, it is often much more appealing to take a job out of high school and immediately generate income. These are the students who begin to feel that an...

HigherEducation, or Higher Priced Education?
The Marriam-Webster online dictionary defines highereducation as “education beyond the secondary level; especially : education provided by a college or university.“ It's no secret to modern students that a highereducation is necessary to advance in their professional life. There is always a cost to advancement and that cost can sometimes create a glass ceiling that is difficult for people in certain social strata to break through. The rising cost of highereducation and its requirement for jobs creates a conflict for people in lower economic brackets. While the social value of highereducation is difficult to argue against, the problems associated with affording highereducation are very real social problems that must be considered.
In Western society we have goals we are expected to achieve. At a very early age we begin preparing our children for school. There is no law demanding that children attend a specific school, nor that upon entering adult life they pursue highereducation. Children can be home schooled or attend any school of their parents' choosing. However, having a degree of some kind gives one many advantages in America. One...
...Case Study: Economic Crisis and HigherEducation in the United States
The 2008–2012 economic failure is considered by many economists and investors to be the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. It results in the risk of total collapse from big financial firms, the bailout of banks by national governments, and downturns in stock markets around the world. The crisis also plays a significant role in the crash of key businesses and collapse of housing market, results in the delayed unemployment. Highereducation is a large and various venture in the United States, which has impacted by the economic recession in a number of ways, but these impacts have not been the same and vary depending on state and type of institution.
Most highereducation traditions started to be concerned about their financial problems due to economic recession. Their main source of revenue has been hurt by the downturn, and that those universities would need to make hard decisions about how to spend their money. In some states, a lot of institutions are in process of fund-raising programs to avoid delaying their supported campus building projects. Many of highereducation university’s leaders have been considering and solving of two following questions: How is the economic downturn affecting institutions both public and private? What strategies are...
Highereducation in the present world has a very long history. Highereducation has deep roots in the early sixth century when first monastic schools were started in Europe which later developed to the famous European university in Bologna during the period between 1088 and 1090. This is the origin of highereducation with all present systems of highereducation borrowing much from this first intuition and system of highereducation. Until early 20th century, highereducation institutions and particularly universities and high level colleges catered only for the elites in the society. Though in this time basic education was enough to secure an individual a well-paying job, the costs of securing a place in the institutions of highereducation as well as maintaining the costs for the period of a given course locked out the middle income earners as well as the poor. Statistically, by the start of 20th century, 3 per cent of the world population had enrolled in universities and other colleges offering highereducation programs. This number was much concentrated in the...
