It is higher education worth your resources in terms of time, money and even effort as stated by Lazerson in Higher Education and the American Dream: Success and it's Disconnects In the recent day and the modern world, the saying that if you do not have any education then you are in deep trouble holds a lot of weight and truth. Many people think that they can make it in life without a higher education by finding cheap employment that does not require vocational training. A higher education is the learning stages that occur in academic, universities, seminaries, colleges and technological institutions. It is also crucial to take note that higher education also includes some college level institutions like the carrier colleges and vocational schools that award professional certificates and academic degrees. By the mentioning of higher education will be referring to this definition. First and foremost, it is extremely crucial that you all realize that higher education comes at a cost in terms of time and resources invested, but at the end of it all it pays handsomely. ?. The big question now lies why should we have a higher education? And to what effect is the higher education for all of us as compared to others who opt not to pursue this education?
Andrew in his book argumentation in higher education: improving practice through theory and research documents statistics by the United States census bureau. In the year 2004 reported that , averagely, a college graduate earns about $54704 annually in comparison to $30056 earned by high school diploma holders and $22100, an amount earned by high school dropouts. Is not this a clear indication of how higher education pays more? This show that even with the same type and job category, the workers will be paid according to their level of education. Without education, you tend to receive a much lower pay as compared to your more educated counterpart as suggested by Richard A. in his book: Argumentation in Higher Education: Improving Practice Through Theory and Research,.
When it comes to job searching education is known to be a great consideration factor. A research that was conducted in 2008 in three states within United States show that about 68 percent of the average person is struggling for a job that will pay well according to their needs as mentioned by Jeffrey J. S. in his book College (Un)bound: The Future of Higher Education and What It Means for Students. This is as opposed to the higher educated educated who have numerous chances for job opportunities and good pay. The average people when employed find it difficult to pay their bills, gas, food and other necessities without struggling. This leads to an event where both the spouses are working just to survive and try to provide a better education for their children. This situation is rarely observed with the higher learned people who do not even note their expenses with much attention since they can comfortably afford for them as mentioned by Jeffrey J. S. In his book College (UN) bound: The Future of Higher Education and What It Means for Students.
A study that was done trying to explain the unemployment nature of many people by universities in the United States found out that unemployment could be well answered. From this research, it was noted that there are many professional job opportunities as compared to unprofessional opportunities as stated by Brown S, Knight P. in the book: Assessing Learners in Higher Education (Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. The largest number of people seeking employment is not well learned and hence they cannot fit in. Jobs are available but the professional need can not be catered by the majority people who are not learned. More than 80 percent of the people seeking employment are not professionally qualified to any field as stated by Brown S, Knight P. in the book: Assessing Learners in Higher Education (Teaching and Learning in Higher Education), An economy that is made by people who lack education will always trail behind other economies that are led by higher learned people. The general economy of Africa cannot be compared to the United States economy as there is a great difference in the higher learning levels between the two regions as contained by William G. B, in the journal: Higher Education in the Digital Age,.
Basically let me conclude that there is a solution to all your financial troubles, and that solution lies in higher education. By looking at almost all the top financial leaders, higher education proves to worth more than your time, money and effort. And with the cost of higher education: it proves to be easier if you start saving for it early enough in order to have a smooth transition as mentioned by Simon. M, Gary. R, (April 2002), in the book: Beyond national states, markets, and systems of higher education: A glonacal agency heuristi,. Also the cost of higher education should be reduced or partly catered for by the government. This has been observed in countries in Africa where higher education is partly catered for by the government and hence the cost has reduced and a motivator is given to students. All this is a sufficient reason as to why we should all have a higher education and the benefits of this education as compared to other people who choose not to have it.
