Energy is very important in our lives and is like a necessity today unlike before. In a matter of around 200 years, we have been able to improve our advancements in energy production. I agree that the price of…[Read more]

  • Hi David, thank you for reading my post. I agree that college isn’t the only definitive answer to being successful. For America, I believe that we have to create more creative outlooks that are brought up in school to change how Americans see higher education.

  • Hi David, I enjoyed reading your essay and I agree that America struggles with gun control. What makes it so hard is because it is our 2nd amendment to have the right to have a gun. Although I believe that guns can be a necessity to protect one’s self, it is more important to keep the community safe from future harms. According to ProCon.org, “…[Read more]

  • As Americans, we believe that schooling is one of the most important values and rights that define us into who we are today. Without education, we would not be capable adults in our society. Or does it leave us

    • Hi Nico. I enjoyed reading this essay about education in America and I agree that we aren’t focusing on the more critical skills needed for life beyond schooling. Without them, tasks such as doing taxes are confusing to someone who isn’t educated on how to do them. In your argument about not needing to go to college, you mention some successful people who dropped out and still became wealthy. However, in regard to the difficulty in finding a job, the period of time that they lived in was probably different from the one we live in today. In a New York Times article with Bill Gates, Gates states, “Although I dropped out of college and got lucky pursuing a career in software, getting a degree is a much surer path to success.” I would check out this link

      • Hi Eric, thank you for responding to my post and elaborating on this topic. I agree that college is very important and relevant now compared to before, but I am bringing up the there are other ways to be successful. Being successful can translate to money or it can translate to happiness. Many people go to college because they think that it is the only acceptable path in society. But for some, all this does to them is lead them down a road of debt trying to survive rather than achieving happiness. They are too caught up by the debt of college than trying to achieve their dreams. Although I agree that college is significant to most, some just hurt themselves and obliviously walk down a path of misery.

    • Hi Nico, I thought your post was interesting and this has been a question I have always asked myself a lot. I think this is an interesting issue. The most surprising part is when you said how many college graduates are out of a job. To most Americans school is the key to success, but is it really? I feel like college is one way to achieve success, but it isn’t the only way to achieve success, and shouldn’t be presented in that way. How do you think we should change this stigma that Americans have about higher education. https://www.forbes.com/sites/ryancraig/2017/01/20/the-top-10-higher-education-issues-we-all-agree-on/#76ccc8f6fa87

      • Hi David, thank you for reading my post. I agree that college isn’t the only definitive answer to being successful. For America, I believe that we have to create more creative outlooks that are brought up in school to change how Americans see higher education. To change how Americans see college will change over time, but I still believe that college shouldn’t be overlooked by any means. It is still a good way to create a path to success, but I want to bring forth the issue that it isn’t the only way. Many believe that college is the only way and it isn’t the right path for everyone. For some, it just puts them into debt they will struggle to pay for the rest of their life.
