What’s the purpose of higher education?
Honestly, I’m starting to believe that higher education is a lie to the American people, I used to believe that when our American leaders, teachers, professors and supporters tell us that a higher education will bring me a more successful future, it really depends if it will or not. Job’s nowadays do not rely on a peice of paper that says your name on it with the word Bachleors on it, or Masters on it. Education is one thing, but experience is another. As employers search for workers, they would prefer their employee’s to have a higher education background but most of the time, it’s not necessary if they can find employees that have the experience that they need. For 1, it’s less training that the company has to do. 2. they can rely on a worker that knows alittle bit or a lot about what they are working within the company. and lastly __ Higher education is always going to be available but the competitiveness of entering your major and actually finding a job of your choosing(career) is something that is really hard to do. Especially in this era where jobs are really hard to find. One of the major benefits behind having higher education is money and I think that the only reason why higher education is available for us is to recieve more money.
Is a college education worth it?
- Higher Education is only worth it, if the funds are available to you. I don’t believe in making more money within a job just because I have a higher education. We can literally be dumbas*es in college and still recieve a degree. A degree will give you more opportunity to recieve more money, it doesn’t necessarily give you the job you want if the availabitlity isn’t there. I believe that hard work and experience means more than higher education because it’s what you do that counts and make a difference. For example, to become an auto mechanic, you don’t really need to read a book to learn how to do an oil change, instead, by actually doing it, and experiencing it within your own two hands and eyes, means much more than reading it and understanding how to do it. Whereas someone that has higher education might have a good job with alot of money because of the degree but may no nothing about changning oil on a car. (Something like that, It’s really hard for me to explain it in words)
