THE IMPORTANCE OF HIGHER EDUCATION THROUGH COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Why is higher education important you may ask through community colleges? There are many benefits to life that come with the achievement of higher education. Furthering your education puts you at a competetive edge with todays evolving technology and the aggressiveness of the present job market. Higher education plays such a huge factor in today’s society and yet there are still very many people out there who cannot afford to go to a big university because of the cost. Four out of ten graduating high school students start their college careers at community colleges. Along the same lines community colleges are the largest and fastest growing area of higher education which means that more and more people today are exploring and learning about the benefits of pursueing higher education through community colleges.
There may be many reasons why we choose to further our education through community college. We all live busy lifestyles and at times just our daily lives, routines and obligations can dictate just how much time people can devote to pursuing a higher education. Some of us may already have families or may even be working at a job. There are also a great number of people as well who simply just spend beyond their means. All of these examples can play a huge roll on affordability and how much time a person can spend inside the classroom.And because of this, these obstacles may prevent or even discourage people from being able to become a full time student. Community colleges offer the opportunity to higher education at a lower expence and present the student with the opportunity to take advantage of the many various scholarships and programs that these community colleges have available.
There are a great number of community colleges to choose from in every state of the country. And...
Malcom X states, "Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it
today." The importance of collegeeducation is far more essential today than it was before. With an economy recovering
from recession and jobs scarce, those seeking employment are now realizing the value of a collegeeducation.
Oftentimes, because of an overwhelming large pool of seekers, applicants without a degree can be terminated from an
employer’s search, all for a lack of certifiable credentials. By obtaining a collegeeducation, it provides you with
rewarding career opportunities that will be beneficial to a successful life. I have decided that I want to further my
education and achieve my career goals.
My aspiration in life is to become an early childhood educator. I want to assist in teaching the young generation
fundamentals that will be of value to them later on in life. Most teachers will tell you that teaching has many rewards, in
which I agree. For starters, teachers directly affect the lives of the students they teach. Think about how much time
students spend in school with a teacher. I will one day be one of the most memorable people in their lives. It will be
gratifying for me as a teacher to watch my...

Although some families cannot afford to put their children throughcollege that should not stop them from getting a goodeducation because education significantly links to many other outcomes and changes the viewpoints.
THE IMPORTANCE AND BENEFITS OF EDUCATION 3
Parents having or not having a college degree should not determine if their child will go to college. Some may say the amount of money the parents make should determine if the child will be able to attend college. If the parent’s income is low that should motivate the kid to try harder to at least earn a scholarship to college. On the news there was a teenager about the age of 18; she was a senior who is getting ready to graduate. Her parents had no money to put her throughcollege. She told the reporter that she was not going to allow that stop her from going to college. This young lady is now going to University of Notre Dame on a full ride scholarship. There is no reason not to attend...
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 education is simply not...
..."Importance of highereducation in the development of my personal life career "
In modern society, education becomes a marketable commodity in the market of educational services. 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...

...PRIVATIZATION OF HIGHEREDUCATION – S.Divya Abirami
Our university system is, in many parts, in a state of disrepair...In almost half the districts in the country, highereducation enrolments are abysmally low, almost two-third of our universities and 90 per cent of our colleges are rated as below average on quality parameters... I am concerned that in many states university appointments, including that of vice-chancellors, have been politicised and have become subject to caste and communal considerations, there are complaints of favouritism and corruption.
– Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in 20071
At the eve of liberalization, globalization and privatization, many changes are taking place in different spheres of Indian socio-economic life.

This paper gives an overview of state of highereducation system in India & highlights the need for private sector to step up in the field...
The Importance of Early Formal Education
Early formal education refers to the education that children obtain during early stages of their childhood. Early childhood is a crucial time period for the development of the mental functions of children. This development, including the emergence of the abilities and skills in areas such as language, motor skills, psychosocial cognitive, and learning, is now known to be greatly influenced by exogenous factors, including the nature of the educational environment to which the child is exposed during the first eight years of life. The benefits of early childhood education have long been disputed. For many years it was believed that children who receive early formal education have an advantage over those who start school at age five or six. Today, some educators challenge that view. They speculate that intellectual and emotional harm can result from putting very young children into structured learning situations. It is hard to deny the opponents opinion that children have always grown up to be intelligent and reliable young adults without the benefits of early childhood education. However, in my opinion, I feel like children who receive early formal education will have advantages over those who start school at age five or six because early formal...
“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...
