The Marriam-Webster online dictionary defines higher education as “education beyond the secondary level; especially : education provided by a college or university.“ It's no secret to modern students that a higher education 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 higher education and its requirement for jobs creates a conflict for people in lower economic brackets. While the social value of higher education is difficult to argue against, the problems associated with affording higher education 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 higher education. 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 who possesses a degree has a better chance of finding a successful money-making career. This, of course, is a crucial step to meeting society’s general standards, and living a life that resembles the ideal. The fact that extensive knowledge like that has become so highly respected reflects well on the values of our culture. Higher education has become the key to social and economic advancement. A well educated person can better process the information in front of them, and this is good for society in general. Those who possess higher-level educations are considered qualified for certain jobs and tasks that others lacking such would not be. Education levels that were once considered necessary only for advancement to the highest levels of society are...

...The Value of a College Education
The value of a college education should not be under estimated. Behind many of the doors that are closed to non-college graduates lie the opportunities that can mean the difference between wanting to hit the snooze on the alarm clock for the fifth time and wanting to get up out of bed and get to work. The pursuit of a college education will have many impacts on one's personal life. There are sacrifices that will have to be made. These sacrifices include time away from family and friends, financial setbacks because of the cost of tuition, and the stress associated with keeping up with schedules. However, there are also benefits after receiving a college degree. These benefits include the doors that are opened to college graduates, self-esteem, and the many professional opportunities that become available. So the value of a college education cannot be calculated in dollars alone. There are other factors such as job satisfaction and self-esteem that make having a college education worth the cost.
The pursuit of a college education can have many effects on a student's personal life. The sacrifices that will have to be made to earn a college degree will be plentiful and sometimes painful. Going to classes, studying, and working on class assignments can take time away from family and friends. Some classes may require many hours of reading, writing...

...The Role of HigherEducation in the Work Force
Traditional notions of education are no longer sufficient to prepare a workforce for a contingent and dynamic world. Currently, we live in an era driven by information, global competition, and new technologies that are changing the way we think, live, and work. The Industrial Revolution was built on machinery, skills and labor; however, the information and knowledge-based revolution of the 21st Century is being built on investment, intellect, and creativity. New jobs are emerging which require a different set of knowledge, skills, and attitudes. To cope with such changes we need continuous education and development of “the human mind and imagination” which, to a large extent, is undertaken by highereducation. Highereducation can be obtained in the workplace through training by managers and supervisors. It can also be attained through universities, technical school, and continuing education courses.
‘Work-based learning’, as explained by Carol Costley from the National Institute of Work Based Learning, Middlesex University, is part of a cluster of concepts, including ‘lifelong learning’, ‘employability’ and ‘flexibility’. One of the challenges which results from this for highereducation providers to employees is to attempt to introduce some clarity about what work based...
