Do College Degrees Always Matter?

by

Earlier this week, The New York Times posed a controversial question, asking “whether college makes the student or the student makes the college”. This is debatable as colleges never measure how much a student actually learns from the time they enter and graduation from school. The New York time is wondering how much the actual teaching and learning that takes place on campus really matters.

Many careers do not require college degrees or education; though some professions, such as mail carriers, have positions that do require a degree, and some that do not. The question here is: is the time lost and the debt achieved by attending college really necessary for becoming a mail carrier?

Another factor to consider is the current state that the economy is in. Many college students studying right now are very uncertain about their career opportunities in the future, and if any will even be available to them. During the great depression in the 30s, for example, the percentage of teenagers who graduated high school rose from a mere 30% to 50% students who would have otherwise been working had they been able to find jobs. With so few positions available, people are pouring into the community colleges. So the question remains, is college education worth it?духи онлайн купитьЭлектронные манкистоимость укладки ламината за 1 кв мкупить декор для кухниэкскурсия на симиланские острова отзывыProline DF-A741MBцена на справку в москве
