The American dream consists of growing up in a suburb with a white picket fence and two kids. Another part of the American dream that people believe in is, attending a college or university after highschool. For all of the time growing up, we believed that we had to manage good grades throughout middle school and high school so that we would have the opportunity to attend or be admitted by a higher education facility. Then, hopefully upon graduation there shall be a job awaiting. However, the thing that college does not guarantee is a that job. College is on average around thirty to forty thousand dollars a year and at the end of it we will be investing about one hundred thousand dollars. This includes the deduction of tuition costs from scholarships and grants. With that being said, if we aren’t guaranteed jobs is the investment worth it? For many students in this day in age, we need to take out loans to afford the tuition and with the increase in “buyers” toward higher education the loans are becoming much easier to come by, making it easier for the college to accept them. Currently there is more debt from student loans compared to those of auto debt and credit card debt. Some people may be skeptical that all this money is worth it and at the end of the day, maybe if we are lucky, we may have the opportunity to work that 9 to 5 desk job we had been working for. Does the cost outweigh the benefits when nothing is guaranteed? In my case, I’ve always wanted to be an exotic veterinarian, which takes four years of college and an extra two years to receive my doctorates. This is required for me to be able to have the career I dream of. So I believe that attending a university is definitely necessary, but there is no way I could become a vet if I did not attend a college and am handed the most important paper of completion. Once I graduate I am certain I will obtain a job. This is because, I have used some of the skills I have...
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 who possesses...
“Ensuring quality highereducation is one of the most important things we can do for future generations,” (Lewis). This quote by Ron Lewis exemplifies how I feel about furthering education following a high school career. Not only is education important during a high school career, but almost essential afterwards. Going to college not only expands the student’s education and knowledge, but it gives them insight to what the real world will be like. I believe that every graduating high school student and even people who have been out of school for a while should give college a chance. It truly benefits the student in more ways than one, and they can use what they learned in years to come. Highereducation can only build upon what a student already knows, which is why is it really is crucial for everyone to continue on to college.
There are many definitions of what highereducation means and what it means to different people. Generally, highereducation is defined as, “education beyond the secondary level; especially: education provided by a college or university” (“HigherEducation”). Many people see colleges just as being more rigorous work than high school and at a faster pace, all while preparing the student for the career that awaits them. Hours of...
...The importance of highereducation
What? - education is about teaching & learning skills & knowledge. Education also means helping people to learn how to do things and encouraging them to think about what they learn. It is also important for educators to teach ways to find and use information. Through education, the knowledge of society, country, and of the world is passed on from generation to generation. In democracies, through education, children and adults are supposed to learn how to be active and effective citizens.
highereducation is education provided by universities, colleges, and other institutions that award academic degrees. Highereducation includes both the undergraduate (i.e., college) and the graduate (or postgraduate) levels. Highereducation includes most professional education and is strongly vocationally or professionally oriented. Highereducation differs from other forms of post-secondary (after high school) education such as vocational education.
Why? In highereducation, Walpole, Burton, Kanyi and Jackenthal (2002) found that professors and administrators stated that the most important attributes for graduate school success were academic ability...

It is becoming more important role in the choice of a young man of values scale because it determines the careers and salaries but this is not the main thing that encourages us to achieve it. People talking that after graduating high school, you enter the real world. It is a time to mature, grow up, and start making your own decisions. However, I did not take it near as serious as I should have. It’s a critical moment in my life, where the choices I make during the next few years will dramatically affect the rest of my life. Seeing how I didn’t take the first step to the real world serious, I was placed on Vilnius University International Business school. I was introduced into the field of business by my father who became a successful businessman and, to this day, loves every minute of his job. Being a very curious child, I kept gathering all the information he ever told me and now, as I choose my future path, I know with certainly that it is a business career that I am attracted to. I am determined to follow my father`s footsteps and make an even better career than his. Since childhood, my family has changed its living location many times. Moving from town to town not only did not affect my grades, but even helped me to...

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 European continent...

Why do we say that everyone must obtain an education to be successful in life? This is one of many questions that people ask about education. Some people ask: what does acquiring an education do for someone that just wants to go to work after he or she finishes high school?

People who have an...
