4. I believe that it is rational for some people to end their formal education with a high school degree, some to finish with a college degree, and some to obtain graduate degrees. Being able to pay tuition is one reason why people may not go to college, but there are many there reasons as well including family reasons and personal situations. Some people may not want to leave their families and attend college. Others might have a spouse that is in a financially stable situation where it is not important for them to work. These reasons lead people
Dunn suggests that young adults are experiencing failure to launch because of the financial difficulties of living alone during a recession (Dunn, 2012). According to Dunn, High school and college grads have a hard time trying to find a meaningful job due to the fact of fewer jobs to choose from and more competition to fill them and even a harder time transitioning from an entry-level job to a career (Dunn, 2012). About 13% of adult children between 18 and 29 move back in with their parents after an attempt to live alone, majority of them are females that state that the economy cause they to move back home (Dunn, 2012). Going to college has become very popular these day but the degrees don’t seem to have a positive effect as far as leading to a job as it once did and living on minimal wage is impossible (Dunn, 2012) Living back home also enables a young adults to reduce their expenses and focus on saving money. Rather than struggling to make ends meet, they can put money in their savings accounts or investments and begin growing a nest egg (Dunn, 2012). People who use their parents as a safety net with no greater financial goal in mind are doomed to never launch away from home; those who use it as a carefully-calculated stepping-stone to a more successful life are much more likely to launch successfully and stay independent ( Dunn, 2012).
After barely graduating in the spring of 2017 from Lopez Early College High School, I went straight to my parent’s house not knowing exactly what I was going to do with my life. I knew I had ruined my life after not paying attention to my teachers and counselors about applying to colleges. They said I was a wonderful and intelligent student with a tremendous capacity of succeeding in life. Although everybody thought that about me, I never did. I was constantly under pressure thinking that I had to work in order to support my family economically, so our house was saved. I was also worried about whether my parents were getting divorced after every insignificant argument they had. I had to be an excellent example for my two younger siblings; but even though I tried my best, I never was.
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.
They looked how college debt is preventing college students to transition into adulthood. Many college students who graduate are looking for jobs just to be able to pay off their loans. They’re less likely to pursue a serious relationship, because they’re not able to support themselves, and would not be able to support the relationship financially. Arum, Roksa, (2012) also looked at how college debt is affecting college student transition into adulthood. They saw that many college students are having a harder time finding a job after college to be able to pay off their loans and to be independent from their parents. The participants were college students who graduated college and was looking for jobs within their major. Many of them remained single after college, because they were not able to spend money on a relationship because they’re weren’t financially stable. Both studies concluded how hard it is for college students to be independent from family and have the resources after college to help them achieve financial
Furthermore, many people want to progress in their work, some simply want to gain in depth education on the particular field they want to achieve. However, individual’s bosses do not always understand. Having a job while in college is a huge demand. Depending on whether students have families or not will put them in a tight position. Ultimately the demand for both will result in them dropping out of college. Mark Kantrowitz says, “Many students who drop out of college has to work while enrolled in college (Why Do Students Drop out of College Kantrowitz)." He follows up by saying that “they often find it very difficult to support themselves and their families and go to college at the same time (Why Do Students Drop out of College Kantrowitz)." In most homes, one's family always comes first no matter what. For example, the desired accomplishments of the mother are not greater than the needs of her children. School work and the work one puts into he/she's job alone are hard to manage. Having to
In the personal story “The Shock of Education: How College Corrupts” written by Alfred Lubrano, Lubrano says that his friend Rita Giordano picked a different college than her friends because it “was far away, and a new world to explore” (585). Rita Giordano felt like she had to move away from her home and friends to do something she likes. When she would go back to her home and to her friends, things weren’t the same anymore. Because she moved away, when she came back home, she felt like she was living a different life; her home life. I can relate with Rita because I had to move far away from my friends and my home by force.
Neither of my parents attended college nor did they finish high school. My family is a one-person income family. I had to get a job to help pay for my expenses because my parents cannot afford to pay for everything. I use the money I earn to pay for my gas, my phone bill, and my other living expenses. Even when my parents can not afford to pay for something my younger siblings want, I pay for it. My parents will not even be able to help pay for my college. The reason for them not being able to pay for my college is because they have two children going to college this year.
My parents have been separated since I was young but they each remind me of how they both graduated from college with Bachelor’s degrees and how important it is that I further my education. Dropping out is not an option and when I graduated from high school it was mandatory that I enrolled to a college before looking for a job. It can be tough when a parent demands a lot from you but in the end it can also benefit you because you’re able to take pride in your accomplishments.
As time went on the house was continuously being built meaning time was running out, I was making sure I appreciated my time in Oak Forest as much as possible. At the end of the school year I did all that I could so I was obviously upset with leaving. I began to spend time with the friends I knew in Orland park and was hoping that I would at least go to the same school as them so that I could know some people in my school. It just so happens that I got very unlucky and went to the school where I didn't know a single person, Orland Junior High (OJH), which is exactly what i was afraid of. This was the start of a new chapter in my life. As the school year started it turned how I imagined it to be, standing alone with nobody to talk to while everybody else reunited with their friends and talked about their summer. Another thing that gave me a punch into reality was the level of difficulty the grading system and classes in this school
It was a nice ordinary warm morning or so I thought. My mother had been thinking of moving for the past year, but she never really got around to it until that day when she told me and my younger sister at breakfast that we were moving to Idaho. I was very shocked and confused. It was only a few weeks ago that we went to visit Idaho to see if we liked the state. There were so many thoughts buzzing through my head such as what am I going to tell my friends and how much longer do I have to say goodbye to everyone before I never see them again. I also thought why Idaho, what was so special about the little potato state. I liked it in California. All my friends were here, this is where I grew up, and all our relatives lived here as well. Even though my family had moved around California many times before this move, Idaho was something new altogether.
Proverbs are phrases use to explain certain solutions. Proverbs can explain specific situations within certain words to get the point across. The function for proverbs is to describe something without having to be forward with what is being said. There were five proverbs from things fall apart that stuck out to me. These proverbs are “when a man says yes chi also says yes”, what is good in one place is bad in another”, “If I fall down for you and you fall down for it is play”, “A man who pays respect to the great paves the way for his own greatness” and “If one brought oil soiled it others”
Like I said for the first reason would be not getting a job unless you want one of the worst jobs in the world if you ask me, the reason why you want to go to school is so you can finish school and get a job and start taking care of your self, mom and dad won't be taking care of you for your whole life there has to be a point in time where you have to grow up one of these days and start getting your life together and you need to start off getting a job and if you don't have a job none of this will
Do you ever wondered how it will feel to walk that stage when finishing undergrad school? That same feeling you had while graduating high school but 100 times better. Those mornings where you had to drag yourself out of bed hoping you had enough strength to continue your path to success. Those nights where you wanted to just give up and choose something easier yet in the back of your mind that’s not what you wanted. That feeling of joy and happiness knowing you reached your goal, but wait. How would it feel knowing that that a career you wanted at one point rejected you? This made me feel like a failure at that point. All my parent’s struggles and sacrifices for nothing. All they ever wanted was for me to have a better life in the U.S and that’s
1. More and more students have to pay for college on their own, or with little assistance from their parents. Learning how to live on one’s own and today’s complicated financial world is stressful, and it’s no wonder that some students would rather drop out and get a job rather than continue studing.
