Post-Secondary Education for All
After high school, students enter the next part of their lives known as college or university. This is a big step in a student’s education, but many students cannot go forth for one reason or another or simply because they were never given the opportunity because of their financial situation. Every student should have the right to free post-secondary education. Not only would this help those students a tight spot, but it could also improve colleges and universities reputations as well as agree with the ethical argument that “education should not be a commodity that is bought and sold.” Post-secondary education is a very big and costly investment, and the sad truth is that many students cannot take this next step, simply because they do not have the extra money to move forward. These students end up taking out huge loans to pay for their tuition, and end up graduation piled in debts that they may never pay off. Also, many students without the money to move forward could have the brains to take this next step, but are not given the opportunity. "What if the cure for cancer is trapped inside the mind of someone who can't afford an education?" (Unknown). This is a very interesting statement and elaborates on the fact that those who don’t have money are just as smart-if not smarter- than those who do. If post-secondary education was available for all, these students could be given the chance to grow academically and act on their right to education, whereas before they could not. If the colleges and universities changed their acceptance policies by raising their standards rather than charging students large sums for tuition, they could easily gain the best of the best in the means of students by forcing them to be more competitive to gain entrance, thus improving the college or universities reputation. Universities and colleges often pride themselves on having the cream of the...

Getting an education is an important part of success in today’s business world. It’s competitive out there, and the more educated you are, the better your chances of landing a good job are.

...Education for All.
Higher Education has left behind the image of an American college population featuring predominantly young men and women from affluent, well connected families. Being a college student myself at age 50, I notice the diversity in student demographics. College represents a new beginning for those who have been affected by the recent economical changes all over the country but mostly in California. The visibility of nontraditional students earning a degree while raising families is commonplace. The availability of financial aid, scholarships, and federal loan programs has opened collegiate doors for students of all income levels and cultural backgrounds.
I had many reservations in regards to entering the education arena so many years after graduating high school. I had concerns that I would not be able to pass an entrance exam. In the article “College Entrance Examination Board” in the Encyclopedia of Education, Second Edition, The College Examination Board is the body that creates the nationally recognized college entrance exam referred to as the Scholastic Assessment Test or SAT which is taken by one million students annually and is required for admission by many four year colleges and universities (372). According to the “Assessment Requirements” article on the website, California Colleges, most California Community Colleges require a placement assessment...
...BASIC EDUCATION SECTOR REFORM AGENDA
“Education for All”. This line is always we hear to those people who are professional; they give much more attentions when they are talking about this, especially in the Philippine Education it is encouraging to develop with aim of improving the quality of basic education. The Philippines is an educated nation where citizens are functionally literate. Functionally literacy is considered as the ability to communicate, to solve problem solving, to sustainably use resources, to develop oneself and to have a broad perspective about the world. The totality of community commits to attainment of basic education competencies for all.
Every community should mobilize all its social, political, cultural and economic resources and capabilities to support the universal attainment of basic education competencies in Filipino and English. Also, the cultural values can be a highly productive component of social capital, allowing communities and the whole country to efficiently restrain opportunism and resolve problems of collective action such as individual refusal to serve the public good.
The Basic Education Sector Reform Agenda (BESRA)is a package of policy reforms pursued by the Department of Education (DepEd) to improve the quality of Education in the Philippines and attain the...
...Is education a fundamental right found in our constitution? This question has been posed and debated for many years. In this case, the state of Euphoria is currently funding the local public K-12 schools by the local property taxes. Apple school district, a poor district in the state of Euphoria, receives 2,000 dollars per pupil less than other, wealthier, districts in the state. This difference in unequal funding is showed with the class selection that students can choose from. For example, Apple school district only has three advance placement classes while other, wealthier, districts have more than twenty advance placement classes. The lack of advance placement classes makes it difficult for students, in Apple school district to get into more selected colleges. I believe that education is an implied fundamental right found in our constitution, because without education you simply can not survive in our demanding society.
Education is the key to success in our society. A person can not survive without being properly educated. The more educated a person is the more open doors of countless opportunities. A person who does not receive a quality education can not have the same open doors. As you can tell, it can be very difficult for them to support themselves with the lack of jobs that they can choose based on their poor education. This is why; I believe a properly funded...

Education For All
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Education For All is a global movement led by UNESCO, aiming to meet the learning needs of all children, youth and adults by 2015.
UNESCO has been mandated to lead the movement and coordinate the international efforts to reach Education for All. Governments, development agencies, civil society, non-government organizations and the media are but some of the partners working toward reaching these goals.
The EFA goals also contribute to the global pursuit of the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), especially MDG 2 on universal primary education and MDG 3 on gender equality in education, by 2015.
The Fast Track Initiative was set up to implement the EFA movement, aiming at "accelerating progress towards quality universal primary education".
UNESCO also produces the annual Education for All Global Monitoring Report. For further information, see UNESCO's website for the Education for All Global Monitoring Report: http://unesco.org/en/efareport

What are the benefits of education for all?
There is so many reasons and so many ways that education can benefit people all around the world. It is stated that schooling for 1 year can increase one person's income up to 10%, and that is only with 1 year of education!. Education makes people healthier by arming them with knowledge that they can use in their daily lives to protect themselves with, so that they can know how to clean and take care of themselves better. It also saves more children because educated mothers know how to take care of their children better since babies are fragile and very hard to take care of and will decrease the children mortality rate. Education also teaches people female rights that are often ignored in poorer parts of the world because they have a different view of women. With education women will know their own rights and stand up for themselves instead of doing nothing. Having education for all people around the world is very important because it is the tool to combat poverty. Education will surely decrease poverty all around the world if there was education for everyone, that is not just my opinion, there are so many facts that prove that education will help people in need....
