Picture this, picture nobody attending college or any other form of higher education. Imagine no cars now, because nobody has the skills to design new ones that work. Imagine your house, in ruins because a hurricane came through that nobody knew how to alert you of its position. Now imagine your children, they don’t know what to do, because they can’t get a better job than working at Arby’s or McDonald’s. This is a future where nobody get’s an education higher than 12th grade.
Do you think that was scary? Well, when it comes down to it, that was pretty much nothing. I say that because when somebody doesn’t have the skills to do something, for this example let’s use maintenance, and nobody else does either then they could do a terrible job and nobody would know. That could cost somebody their life! That is just one reason why having more education after High School, is best for everyone and living.
Another problem with kids not going to school after High School is financial dependency. This is a problem because, if those kids can’t support themselves, then what makes them think that they could carry on the family line. Then, if they do end having children, they can’t support the family and so they end up on financial aid and food stamps. This is a big problem, because it means that their kids won’t have the best life that they can. However it does ensure that the kids will learn how to take care of their families. However if they fall prey to entitlement, they will not be able to support their families and that would be even worse than when they were kids. In order to avoid this, kids should try to get into the best colleges that they can, in order to have the best future for themselves and their kids later on in life. So, what do you say, do you want to learn more because if you don’t, you can turn around now. The next part that you are to read, is the hardest to accomplish. So if you want to stay with me, let’s get going!
So, as mentioned in all of the previous paragraphs; College. This is typically the next step for people who aren’t going to be lawyers or doctors. College is one of the best things out there. Unfortunately it is very difficult to find the best college for your specific needs and one that you would actually want to go to. The next problem for many students is a payment plan. Most people fall into tremendous debt from Student Loans. I know two people who are still suffering from the incredible load of debt instilled upon them from college. These two people happen to be my parents. Since this is happening to them my dad has said from the beginning, that my sister and I have to get scholarships in order to go to College. Also, I have started thinking about what I want to go to college for so that I can pick the best college for me. So far the best one seems to be Juilliard, but that is super prestigious. So, scholarships are some of the best things out there so that is something you should definitely look into if your are trying to go to college.
In conclusion, a higher education is pretty much a requirement for being successful in life. However, this does depend on what field of expertise you are going into. Please like and subscribe for more from Homeschooled Hero!
