After high school, most students want to go to college. However, some students do not want to begin college right after high school. This is due to financial problems or students not being ready to be apart from family. The order, in which societies and many cultures have set, for the time in a person’s life, which he should go to college, was set for a reason. Students are expected to graduate from high school, attend and graduate college, then go on to a career. Students who keep this order tend to experience all they can in their earlier years of life, and have a career in which they can use the experiences they have accumulated from college. This will in turn create a financial and stress free life in their adult years. Students should not wait a year before they enter college because they can get involved with things that will stop them from going to college, forget knowledge from high school, or lose out on opportunities because of their age difference. Students who wait a year before starting college may have a hard time going to college after that year because of everyday experiences, that may alter their mind of their want or need to attend college. In one school year off after high school, students are likely to obtain a job to keep money in their pockets, get pregnant, or have to much spare time on their hands, which can lead them to hanging with bad influential people, that will in turn get students involved in activities like stealing or fighting that will then
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams,” recited Eleanor Roosevelt. Why is it that some high schoolers want to graduate early? Are there any benefits to the advancement position at which some high schoolers would like to achieve by graduating early? The answer to that question is yes! There are so many great opportunities for those students who want to progress with life quicker and hopefully more accomplished. Early graduation can offer high school students and families a more stable and helpful financial environment. By applying such help and guidance to one 's life, it can enable a student to secure a well put together future for oneself and have a higher chance of success. Another benefit of early
One question that comes to mind when graduating high school is, “should I attend college?” For many graduates this question have a very obvious answer. A high school graduate may state that, “college is the best option if one is trying to get a higher level of education, and will help one compete for a higher paying job.” However, in my opinion most graduates do not consider the fact that going to college is a very big decision to make and that the schoolwork will not be easy. Going to college is not the best choice for every high school graduate because many students cannot handle college, colleges’ lower standards, and not all jobs require a college degree.
Today many high school students are trying see if college education would good idea for future jobs or careers. Teachers and parents alike think about college being a good investments in for their children or students future. They believe that college is helping people to grow mentally and socially. Furthermore, they believe that getting a college degree is good for students that are trying to start higher paying careers, which will turn into a higher sum of money. On the other hand, there are many naysayers arguing that college is not the only option for education. But there are other options such as self-education, online schooling and vocational schooling. They consider college in being too expensive and requiring to take out loans making
The transition from high school to college is a dynamic time in one’s life that parallels the change from childhood to adulthood. Both of these changes are dramatic and, as a result, feelings are difficult to put down into words. A messy combination of emotions fills the heart, surfacing in strange ways. Confident high school seniors go right back to the bottom of the chain when entering college as freshmen. These students start all over, just like entering grade school or high school for the first time. The move up from high school to college signals the switch from dependence to self-sufficiency. From a personal point of view, going through the experience of graduating high school and transferring to a residential college campus at STLCOP, made me realize I was no longer a kid and capable of making my own decisions.
As adolescents begin their senior year, the topic of college often runs without hindrance, often causing extreme stress. As the monetary value, as well as the time spent, begins to accumulate in their minds, students often find themselves bound at the wrists figuring out a way to balance as well as afford college living. In many cases, the upcoming graduates are unsure about their career path, almost enhancing their stress in choosing a school that would cater to their needs. It is almost then they begin to ponder whether or not University/college life is for them, which is could be an extremely advantageous shot in a, for example, high achieving family. Whilst college does allow for a plethora of doors to be opened, the lack of time, effort, and money can hinder one 's ability to properly choose a university. Though school can help with the stepping stones of life, they do not entirely ensure a proper future, therefore many may opt out of school; however, with the correct actions, they may turn out extremely successful, which may not have even happened without the release of the burden of school.
“Kids who are the first in their families to brave the world of higher education come on campus with little academic know-how and are much more likely than their peers to drop out before graduation” (1). Many people believe that school isn’t for everyone, and whoever goes is privileged for doing so. Countless people in the world today do not attend college, and this is mainly due to an influence of those in their family. Perhaps they are unsupportive of higher education, their parents and family members may view their entry into college as a break in the family system rather than a continuation of their schooling and higher learning. Most of the first-generation students decide to apply to colleges, because they aspire to jobs which require degrees. However, unlike some students whose parents have earned a degree, they often seek out college to bring honor to their families, and to ensure they make a decent amount of money for their future.
It is a well known fact but there are many people including counselors, parents, teachers, and friends who resist saying it out loud for fear it will sound like discouragement and negativity: college is definitely not for everyone. The pressure on high schools students, especially those that excel, to attend a college or university is enormous. And in the case of a bright, industrious and motivated high school student, attending a college or university is an obvious career choice. For those students, it's only a matter of what university to attend, whether one's SAT score is high enough, and the availability of the money. Then there are the millions of high school students who are not really personally motivated but are being pressured by their counselors, teachers and parents should they attend college if they really don't care? This paper examines those issues.
When students reach their junior and senior years of high school, they are faced with pressure from teachers, counselors, and parents to choose and apply to colleges. Instead of succumbing to the pressure, some students choose to pursue careers with no degree necessary or careers in the military. Other students are still left contemplating whether or not college is worth the financial strain. When other factors such as future career earnings, personal growth, and potential friendships and relationships are considered, it becomes clear that college truly is worth the cost.
Today, many students are settling for jobs immediately out of high school instead of furthering their education in college. Students should consider how necessary college actually is for their lives in the future. It provides one with a significant amount of opportunities, a greater knowledge about their career plan, and a better sense of responsibility.
As many can attribute, growing up as a child happens vary fast for both the parents and children. Schooling especially happens the same way. Just twelve quick years of schooling and their off for college. But for some students they continue without further schooling. Causing them to find less quality jobs. Most enter their last year of high school and are not prepared for what they want to do after they graduate. Parents have their ideas for their children but the student themselves, they have no idea what they're gonna do for college. But some students my wait and put together a last minute idea for college. But it’s quite obvious that maybe some students should think about further schooling sooner, so he or she is prepared. Some parents on the other hand believe that preparing them too soon may burn the student out on wanting to go to college.
For most Americans the traditional next step after graduating high school is enrolling into college. This causes an extreme pressure on high school graduates to continue on being a full time student whether it be from parents, fear of losing heath care, or watching friends go away to college. Many students to fall into the belief that quickly getting through the next four years of college to obtain a degree is the best way to lead to the beginning of career success and the next phase of their lives. However, dedicating oneself to a university is a task that takes extensive amounts of time with careful and precise planning, which most high school seniors do
Many students rush to college right after high school because that is what most students do these days. Taking a year or two off between high school and college can be more beneficial than most parents may think. It is also referred to as a gap year. Instead of pushing your children into going to college right after high school, more parents need to encourage their children to take a break from school to give them time to become more mature and also time to focus on what they want to do with their lives in the future. I hope by reading this paper you will understand how a gap year can be more beneficial to students rather than heading off to college right after high school.
Education has been emphasized, even in early history and up to modern day. Public schools are available to all families, that is, until graduation from high school comes around and the stress of applying to colleges, if any, occurs. Today, students have the responsibility of paying off the crippling debts that result from attending college. Those notorious debts have led to heated debates regarding the topic of college and its worth. The expenses of college is overshadowed by the benefits gained from it. Students who attend college are provided far more than just a path to their desired job or career; it provides them with a new environment to work with, which in turn, allows students to grow, provides an opportunity for relationships to form, and provides a more secure life after college than had not attended college.
Elementary, middle, and high school years are meant to prepare students for their college life and their life in the real world. However, students may not be receiving the proper encouragement and preparation for what to expect in their future. The failure in college education is a result of the technology advancement in schools, a far too complicated graduating system, and a way of teaching with too low of standards. When students are not receiving the proper preparation for college in their earlier years, they are not guaranteed to be as successful as they should be.
