The Jack Boots Get Louder as Obama Fundamentally Transforms Our Kids with Fed Control of Public Schools http://t.co/eZ3SZb1n...
Although this bill will not affect me (It will not be fully in action until the 2014 school year) it does interest me. I think this is a completely terrible idea for our new students. All this will do is completely bore students until the point when they make no connection with the material they are learning. Books such as "Of Mice and Men" are extra meaningful to our students. However no nonfictionla information is taught, students learn about our history, and learn import qualities that are important rather than numbers or statistics. Although there should be a balance between nonfictional and fictional text, fictional text should never be completely abolished. With the book "Huckleberry Finn" students learn how to analyze text and relate it to thier lives that they don't get from standard nonfictional readings. I think that this bill will not work the same way that Obama hopes it will, and I think that fictional books benefit our learning in a different way than nonfictional text, and should be mixed in with nonfictional text to provide a great education.
Making college more affordable still matters to those who want the American dream. (College education is key to the American dream - How can we help you achieve your dream?
My Thoughts: I completely agree that having a college level education will benefit anyone in the long run. Liek the article states, the majority of college graduates will make 83% more money than an average high school graduate. The economy is rough, and the majority of people who suceed have earned a college education, which is ironic, because the expenses of college are also on the increase. Without a college education most students will not be able to earn a stable income and may tend to struggle financially more than a graduate. College education needs to be less expensive. This will give more students the option to have a more successful career, and a higher level of education.
Around the world, governments and businesses face a conundrum: high levels of youth unemployment and a shortage of job seekers with critical skills. How can a country successfully move its young people from education to employment?
My thoughts: I think that with this economy, jobs are getting harder to get for several reasons. Higher education past high school is costing more and more which means that less and less people can afford to go. With less people going to college, there are less people with the critical skills needed to get a job. It's a vicous circle that only continues to get worse. If more people could afford an education there would me more possible job applicants. With college expenses so high its hard to expect everyone to be able to go. They say anyone can get an education if they put in the effort, but that doesn't take away the hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. It's hard to see the point of going to college if you can't afford it, expecially now, when it's such a battle to get a full time job. Also, having that huge debt with no job to help pay it off is a major problem for many graduates in this economy.
This handout provides information about writing personal statements for academic and other positions.
The personal statement can be considered one of the key elements to your college application. It gives the university an idea of who you are, what you value, and your skills. It's a way to demonstrate why the school would benefit from having you as a student. As I read this article, everything I read made sense. The article says to explain lower grades/test scores, describe a hardship and how you overcame it, and what traits you value. These are all elements that can show the university what kind of person you are so they get an idea if you're the type of person they want on thier campus. Depending on the prompt, I think that explaining lower grades/test scores wouldn't be as valuble to the school as explaining a hardship and how you overcame it. When it comes to personal statements, schools wan't to get an idea of your character, they want to hear about more than your grades. In some cases, explaining your grades may be important, if there was a significant drop in your GPA then that would be important to either note or put in your personal statement.
This is relieving for me to read. Because I will be pursuing a career in business, it is good to see that the career outlook is positive. Because consumption is growing, the demand for marketing/business jobs are also growing. Areas such as statistics, economics, and management are expecially in the grow and can be expected to earn the most steady income early on. I am interested in pursuing a career in management/marketing so it is good that I can expect to find a job easier than some other majors. Also, it is good to see that management and economics make the most income. It's a little dissapointing to see that jobs in advertisement are in the decrease, because I was interested in advertisement. I do graphic design as a hobby so it would be cool to use my talent as a career, and make income from it. I plan on mixing my major with Management and marketing. This would give me more options when it comes to possibilities for a career. The career outlook for my interest looks good which even enforces my choice as a business major.
Growing Gap Between What Business Needs and What Education ProvidesForbesMcKinsey just published a groundbreaking study of the impact of education on employment (“Education to Employment“), and it demonstrates the challenging mismatch between our...
My Thoughts: This site discusses a serious issue, that has been bothering me about our education. Are we getting what we are paying for, when attending a four year unversity? If only 42% of business' consider college graduates to be even partially prepared, there is an issue. Also, 72% of colleges claim that their students are prepared. Clearly there is some miss-comunication. I am going to study business and marketing when I attend college, so I would like to know that I am investing my money on something worth while. I want a business to consider me prepared to work after I graduate. If 58% of students really aren't prepared to work, this is an issue that needs to be resolved. Busniess' need to communicate to education what it is they look for in a new employee. With college prices so high, it would be nice to know that we are really getting the education we are paying for.
Earning a business degree can greatly increase your job opportunities and earning potential. There are many different business disciplines that can be pursued and combined.
My thoughts: I learned about several different kinds of business degrees and have come to a conclusion on which one I would like to pursue. I am most interested in business administration and marketing. Marketing has caught my eye since I took a marketing class during my freshman year. We learned a little bit about what this degree has to offer. This kind of career invovles creating a product, advertising the product, pricing, promoting the product, and customer information. I love doing this, and this is a high paying field, so it is perfect for my career. In our marketing class, we actually designed a sports team and did all of this. We designed products related to the team and advertised/promoted them. We also learned about "target market" and how to catch the attention of possible customers. I didn't find accounting or finace as interesting, and entrepreneurship is too risky of a career for me. So I have come to a conclusion to study marketing/business administration while in college.
During my college search, a few private universities caught my eye. I realized that they had a different experience to offer than a public university would so I wanted to look more in depth. I found out that private universities have more of a competitive admission process. You need to stand out more than other students, and most private universities have lower acceptance rates than those of a public school. Also a private university will always have a much more expensive cost of tuition, which isn't a good thing. I don't want to get out of college with a lot of debt, so I am leaning more towards a public university. However, a private university has a larger staff to student ratio which means that the professors can have more one on one time with their students. This is something I would benefit from, but the question is, is the extra money worth the smaller amount of students? I don't think it is and that is why I will be leaning towards a public university.
During my college search, both public and private universities have caught my eye. My question is: Is the extra price of tuition in a private university worth the different experience it gives you? I have come to the conclusion that the expierence of a private university is not worth giant increase in tuition. I would be paying extra for a smaller campus with less students (which provides more one-on-one time with teachers), different degrees/majors, and a lot of the time a religous background. However those things may be nice, I do not think it is worth the extra money. In my opinion it would be a better investment to attend a public uuniversity that meets the majority of my needs.
