Student name: Tung Quy Le Student Id: S0250878 Should university education be free for everyone?
In the modern world, education plays a great role in developing people’s knowledge. Higher education imparts special knowledge to students and helps them to hone their skill in their field of interest. Therefore, further education should be provided to university students free of cost. However, in developed countries with a large population and underdeveloped countries which are poor this idea will not be feasible. This essay will argue that higher education should not be free for everyone. Firstly, we will look quality, function and job opportunities from university education to prove this type of education should not be free anyone. In general, the main disadvantage of free higher education is job opportunities. In the recent year, there has been a rapid rise in the number of graduates. However, most students find their jobs which do not need to require the degree. In addition to this, a number of students get some bachelor degree or master degree but they have difficulties to find a job which is suitable for their study. A study by the ONS found that nearly 50% of workers who left university in the past five years are doing jobs which do not require a degree (Pettinger 2015). Furthermore, almost half of recent universities leavers are working in non- graduate jobs, as those with media studies degree fare the worst. According to the Office for National Statistics (2014) found that 47 percent of employment workers who left university within the last five years are performing parts which do not require higher education qualification. This figure is up from 37 percent in 2001, with most of rise occurring since the recession of 2009. The finding will show that the Uk's recovering economy is based on kinds of elements such as: skill, income, class, social role. As a consequence, there is a mistake to...
Should College Education be Free?
I have read in several articles about the essence and benefits of freeeducation. I have also participated in several arguments concerning this subject matter. Free college education does have its underlying advantages, but in my opinion the long term negative effects of free college education significantly outweigh its short term benefits. Critical as well as empirical analysis point this fact.
Firstly, permit me to buttress the fact that there is no such thing as freeeducation. Funding would still be required to propagate educational processes in one way or the other. A critical look at the public education systems of developed societies will show that this endeavor is the single largest expenditure of federal, state and municipal governments. Thus, increasing the scope of free college education only serves to increase the already burdening expenditures of our nation’s government.
Secondly, the implementation of free college education would only serve to significantly limit the value of education. By virtue of filling colleges with students who primarily do not merit their place and have no business there, college education would only seem like a four year extension of secondary...
...Education is the Key to Success and a Better Life
As we all know education is one of the most important things in life. Education is what helps us human beings succeed and make a difference. Us Americans are all given the opportunity to attend free public grade school, but some of us don’t take that advantage and send it all to waste, not knowing that their are many other kids in the world that don’t have this same opportunity that we have. For example in Kenya children are not all given that opportunity of having free grade school education. Many of them don’t even know how to spell out their own name nor do they know how to read. The one’s responsible for not having education for these children are obviously the government.
As shown in the movie “The First Grader” their main issue was education, it was not being offered for free until a while later the government opened a small primary school in Kenya. Many parents tried getting their children enrolled so they could get a freeeducation. An 84 year old man by the name Maruge also tried attending but was told no because he was not properly dressed, so he being as poor as he was, was motivated to go buy some old clothes and fixed them up a bit he later was let into the school by teacher Jane, knowing she could get in big trouble risked it. She was motivated to...
...Training and Education in Healthcare
HCS/341 - HUMAN RESOURCES IN HEALTH CARE
May 9, 2013
Education and Training are important to ensure that critical risk management and loss control information is presented to, understood and utilized by healthcare professionals and staff. I have always heard that you are never too old to learn, and as long as you keep an open mind, a positive attitude, and a strong dedication for what you are doing, you are destined to succeed. In healthcare, there are always essential trainings and classes being held for employees to complete when learning new procedures or just refreshing their memories with requirements they do on a daily basis. These educational and training programs provide the tools required to move toward service excellence. Energized, committed and educated employees make a positive difference in a patient’s healthcare experience; untrained and undereducated employees lead to potentially unsatisfactory service situations. This is critically important since most malpractice claims and lawsuits are pursued based on patients’ feelings about those potential communication and service lapses. True service excellence, or providing services at the highest level, needs to be embraced by everyone in your organization. This can be accomplished through targeted training and educational programs focusing on improving patient, or “customer” service.
Depending on the level of...

Science 1 in the Early Years
Assessment: Item 1- Views of teaching and promoting science of young learners
The pedagogy of play can be hard to understand and part of the reason for this is it’s so difficult to explain how children learn by play because play isn’t simply; it is complex. Each child begins their early childhood education with a set of skills and prior knowledge that is influenced by their family, culture and past experiences (Fellows &Oakley, 2010). The past knowledge should become the foundation for developing an understanding of scientific concepts (Duschl, Schweingruber & Shouse, 2007). Children are naturally inquisitive, creative and aware of the world around them (Campbell & Jobling, 2012). Play is an important development tool and an effective way to teach children scientific concepts while using their prior knowledge (Preston, Mules, Baker & Frost, 2007). Learning science through play shows children that science is useful and enjoyable and is a significant aspect of the real world (Bulunuz, 2013). This essay will review teaching science through play, theorists who support play and the way in which the Australian curriculum and EYLF support play pedagogy.

Everyone would agree that education is a fundamental way of life. A means to learn something new. It’s intention is to mentally, physically, and emotionally benefit the person by putting them in a better place then they were previously in before. From the beginning of times people have relied and survived on past educators. There are many people that contribute to a individuals education. Starting off as a young child most of the information retrieved comes from home through parents, and loved ones. As they move into adolescents learning is obtained from multiple people including teachers, friends, and even through their surroundings. An ideal education promotes knowledge while incorporating valuable information that can be used to help in everyday life.
“-Education is the process of acquiring knowledge.” True education comes in many different forms. Granted it is important to study the basic academic courses including reading, writing, arithmetic, science, and social studies which all will help set a strong foundation for the student. It is equally just as significant that the educator offer alternative information for the well-being of the student. Education should build not only on the text that lies within a book, but should also touch base with everyday life....
Rhetoric & Writing I
February 18, 2014
Many famous, intelligent and influential people speak publicly about the subject of education. Jean Anyon said, “Schoolwork helps one to achieve, to excel, to prepare for life”(175). Education is a very controversial subject during these times. Although it has improved tremendously over the years, there are still countless flaws in the system. Since having a good education leads to better opportunities, every parent wants their child to receive the best education that they possibly could. The problem is that education is actually different throughout the world. It is taught and carried out differently based on the amount of money the child’s family has and where the child lives in perspective of the school. Wealthy children do not have a problem being able to attend a high-class school while children that are not wealthy struggle to be able to learn the same way. Even though education is taught differently to certain children, there are ways for everyone to learn the same key characteristics that lead to success. In order for children to get good jobs and earn a substantial amount of money, they need to learn to have the ability to think independently, be able to apply ideas and concepts, and have a creative mind; but since not all schools teach this, parents and teachers play the biggest role in teaching them....
...The Importance of Education
The importance of learning and grasping a quality education enables the individual to put his or her potentials to optimal use are clear. Without education, the human mind is incomplete. No individual is a human being in the working world has been able to succeed without some proper source of some kind of education. Now I'm not saying you're not a human without an education; the mind was made to be trained and without education, a person is incomplete in that sense. Education makes a person right thinker and a correct decision-maker. It achieves this by bringing him knowledge from the outside world, teaching him to reason, and acquainting him with past history, so that he may be a better judge of today. Without education, a man just sees a room. With education, he finds himself in a room with all its windows open to the outside world. In other words, people who are not educated have less chance to do what they want to do.
A person that gets a good education will become a more dependable worker, a better citizen, and a stronger consumer. For example, people would rather higher an educated person rather than a non-educated person. When looking at the long-term effects of an education, our economy needs these educated people to know how to keep the economy efficient and not get into a...
...EDUCATION SHOULD BE FREE
Nearly every country in the developed world, and more and more in the developing world, provide free primary and secondary education. Such education is generally uncontroversial and accepted as necessary around the world. In the case of secondary education, however, there is a great deal of disparity between countries’ education policies. In many states students must pay fees to access a school. Often states offer financial assistance to individuals who cannot afford to pay fees and lack other methods of payment. In other states, education is completely free and considered a citizen’s right to attend. Debates center on the issues of whether there is in fact a right to education, and on whether states can feasibly afford to finance such education.
It is a fundamental right of individuals to experience primary and secondary school and to have access to the knowledge. Primary and secondary school offers a huge opportunity. It is a treasure of knowledge to be gained and experiences to be had. Primary and secondary school provides an opportunity that exists at no other time in an individual’s life. It is a time of personal, intellectual, and often spiritual, exploration. In secondary school, no such opportunities exist, as they are about instruction and following orders, not about...
