Should everyone go to college?
I haven't taught adult ed. but I did TA and teach at a community college and my answer to this is a firm "No". Not everyone should go to college. On this island where I live and work people tend to be extremely preoccupied with academic success. This is understandable since we are a developing nation with few exports and a tourism industry that is still being shaped. The best jobs (and the only ones with guaranteed pensions) tend to be in the civil service and increasingly these jobs require qualifications beyond a high school diploma. In addition to these there are also the so called "big jobs": doctors, lawyers, engineers and the like.
Many parents have high hopes for their children to hold one of these "big jobs". Policy ensuring universal access to education until age 18 was not passed until 2002. People coming from depressed socioeconomic backgrounds want to see better lives for their children and to them, the opportunity for that lies in education. I agree with them to an extent. Both of my parents came from rural areas, had many siblings and parents who were labourers. Neither of them could afford to go to high school and I have no doubt that their lives would have been much different if they had. I can get behind the idea that everyone should go to grade school and complete high school. College is another kettle of fish entirely.
Because of this push for jobs that require tertiary education and possibly advanced degrees everyone wants their kid to go to college regardless of their actual aptitudes or interests. While teaching I have encountered scored of students who would be better served by professional apprenticeships in other fields or technical and vocational training. It wasn't that they weren't intelligent - they simply weren't good at critically analyzing the failure of the West Indian Federation or explaining the significance of Aime Cesaire to the Pan-Africanist movement. Moreover they had no real *desire* to do so. Like the author of the article I thought I was able to stir their interest in certain topics and thought we were getting somewhere but in the end many of them would just rather be doing something else and were trying to pass these courses because someone else was saying they *had* to.
No. I'm no republican but I think you should earn it. Undeserving people are the reason I refuse to go to college. And if everyone is entitled to go, many people will share how I feel. It's just not good to the people that actually work for it.
If you want to be a sports star and take a special route to become one, then yes. Or, if you are planning to start a career where no college background is necessary. Otherwise, college is a "must." Everyone should go to college, regardless of what they want to do.
Cats don't go to college everyone knows that.^_^
No and Yes, everyone should experience college life but not everyone is cut out for it. I had fun in college, and would do it again.
This is obvious. NO.

Everyone should follow their dreams. Becoming a Navy SEAL is difficult, but it is possible if you are determined and prepared.
tell them that you really did go to college, but do not tell them what school you came from as a givebacks they will go to that college and check with everyone in that school.
It really just depends on what you think. I personally think it should, but everyone has their own opinion

You should go to college to get an education. If you go to college, you have a way better chance of getting a good job that can support you for the rest of your life.

Not everyone would do well in college. Some people can go straight out into the "real world" and start working! Here are some reasons NOT to go to college: if you are barely passing high school, you would probably not pass college if the career you want does not require a college education if you would rather attend technical college for a career-specific education if you would rather go ahead and start working
it should go away
You should go to college. Some common jobs require you going to college and getting a degree.
The reason you should go back to college is to better your future. Going back to college will make it easier to get a better job in the future.
Why not? If you like the college and what it has to offer you then why should it matter if it's a "black college."

You should have a high school diploma in a college prep program. There are some colleges that will accept a GED. Still, if you do not meet the entrance requirements of the four year college or university, you can start at a community college and then transfer to the four year institution later. The community college is a great place to start and gives everyone the change to obtain a college degree.
the college he gets asked to play at.
No, but should probably be able to spell college correctly.
There should be a physical therapy program at your college for you to go into.
Yes, women should go to college to further their education if they find it necessary for the job they would like to do.
The higher quality the university the harder it is to get in for instance it is a lot harder to get into Rice than it is to get in to University ofTexas at San Antonio. You should go to U.S. news and check out the college rankings it tells you the acceptance rate and top schools but the general requirements are high standardised test scores which you can study for and good grades which you… Read More
