Success in College

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 18:53:39 +0000

I have been researching if a college that a person attends affect the rest of their lives, ie, Ivy League vs. state schools. On the EBSCO website I found the article, ELITE COLLEGES DON'T GUARANTEE SUCCESS by Anne Kates Smith that addresses my topic.

Bye, Bye Catholic Schools

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 19:34:05 +0000

As we all know, the economy is not doing so great. For this reason, people are taking out student loans to go to college/university. There are also less people willing to pay the tuition of going to a Catholic school. This means there are less enrollments each year. Some do not care about this and that is perfectly alright, but did you know that studies done by scholars at the University of Chicago, Northwestern, the Brookings Institution, and Harvard have come to the conclusion that Catholic schools, on average, do a better job of educating children, especially poor and minority students.

I found these links during my research about college:

"Forget Harvard and Stanford. It Really Doesn't Matter Where You Go to College." Washington Post. The Washington Post. Web. 15 Mar. 2016.

elite college account for about 6% of college students in the U.S.
Children a pressured into going into the most competitive environment for college
Employers more interested in experience rather than the name of the school a person graduated from.

Is education boring for a reason?

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 01:19:21 +0000

(image)

What is the first thing you think of when someone says the word "school"? People usually say stress, grades, brain numb, maybe even stupid or boring, but consider the reason why students may say that, although they are told many times that education is a privilege. Does this mean that our schooling system in the United States may be too loose on pressuring our students into academic achievement?

Should school be made longer?

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 00:39:30 +0000

Their has been a long time debate on such a notorious question? Should we make school hours longer? Some people believe that having more hours of school could be to much pressure on a student, making them lose their focus and concentration after a certain period of time. Other people believe that having longer school days can help students get more work done, and help them catch up with the curriculum of other countries. After all, China has school hours from 7:30 A.M to 5:00 P.M, according to "Infoplease."

What would tests and exams be like if they weren't timed? It has been said that New York will not receive timed state tests this year. Is this a good change, or a bad change?

Should the Minimum Wage be Raised?

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 21:35:08 +0000

(image)

As someone under the age of 20 who is currently considering getting a job, the minimum wage value matters to me because I will probably make minimum wage whenever I choose to enter the workforce. Both sides of the argument are completely valid opinions. People against raising the minimum wage say that it will only make retail prices go up in order to compensate for the extra expenses that companies will undergo.

The Cost of Education

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 20:04:34 +0000

(image)

A political issue I care greatly about is the cost of college, especially as an incoming college student. While applying to schools and waiting for an answer is stressful, that stress doesn't wane once you've been admitted. In my short experience, once I had been accepted was when all of the really difficult matters came to hand. I was given a pamphlet that explained just how much I'd be paying annually, and what exactly for. Almost $10,000 dollars, resident’s tuition.

America's Education, or Lack Thereof

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 02:30:43 +0000

While so much is going on in the political world right now, one issue I don’t think is being focused on enough is our education system. To face the facts, our education system is awful. Of forty ranked countries, the US ranks fourteenth in education (https://rankingamerica.wordpress.com/category/education/), and under half of US high school graduates are not enrolled in college (http://nces.ed.gov/fastfacts/display.asp?id=98). And while the candidates all argue over issues like immigration and ISIS, there is still the huge problem with education.

Education in Prisons: Can it Reduce Crime?

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 15:10:13 +0000

(image)

As students, we dislike going to school, having to sit in class and learn for six hours. We look forward to graduation, when we can finally escape what some of us jokingly refer to a "prison". The truth is that nobody can really escape education. People learn new things everyday. Education is inevitable. But who would've thought that you could still have the option of education behind the bars of an actual prison cell? Prisoners too can decide whether or not to learn.

Flaws in our educational system (Research Prospectus)

Education is a highly valued resource in today’s modern society. It is considered necessary for success in the majority of careers. In order to ensure all students an equal shot at success and meeting high standards in their professional careers, our education system should receive top notch funding and be efficiently designed. Our public schools are not designed to fit needs of a variety of different students. Many different personality traits require different classroom classroom layouts, schedule designs and levels of instruction.
