No matter where you are in the world, we can all agree that the education system always has flaws. In the US there are major questions to be asked when it comes to education. We can sit here and say, without hesitating, that if you don’t go to college, you won’t have a good job. Which rises so many questions which we will discuss today. Among those are, literally going to college, debt sentences, and societies view on education.
Going to college for most of us in the US is a big thing. We are trying to further our education and get that wonderful piece of paper saying we have proof that we know things. Yes, college has benefits. But what I cannot sit here and justify is why do we have to go to college to even get a job. The majority of people who graduate from college with a degree, don’t get a different job than their current one. In fact, of the unemployed 40% of them belong to the millennial generation. But why is that? With recent college graduates having such trouble finding jobs, they are still burdened with a crazy amount of debt.
Debt is something huge to talk about in education. If you think about it, in order to get that higher paying job, you have to have a 4 year degree. With tuition on the rise, you are looking at shelling out at least $40,000 in order to have that piece of paper. When you are thinking about your average part time job, or job in general, you make much less than that per year. Don’t get me wrong, there are some people who end up being lucky, but even getting loans and grants are a struggle in today’s schooling system. In the end, we are looking at being in debt and jobless. You would think the statistics would give the powers that be a real idea of what needs to be changed.
Society in general has been seasoned to think that if you don’t go to college or get an education you cannot make it in life. Well, that statement in itself is so wrong its ridiculous. Yes, there will be benefits to getting higher education, but in the end who does it really benefit? We are putting ourselves through all of this time and effort, and ending up jobless and in debt up to our eyes. Some of the most successful people dropped out of college in order to pursue their dreams and their vision. By all means I’m not saying drop everything and do the same, but personally there are so many things that we can accomplish when we focus our efforts.
In the end, the question is “Does the education system need reform?” Personally something has to change. But in the end, I will say, you have to always make sure you do the best for you. Stay true to yourself, and everything else will happen. There will always be questions to be answered, but in the end, your view is what will change the world.
