Education is one of the important factors in the world. The aspect of education is a reality in both developed and developing nations. There are various questions that are asked based on the aspect of education being offered today on the world. One of the questions is whether there are very many people going to college?. Another question is whether the colleges are worth the price of admission?. It is worth noting that the two articles on the topics focus on the aspect of college education in America today. The tuition charges in both private and public colleges seem to have doubled compared to the past generation. This issue brings in the aspect of comparison of the number of individuals joining college education and the issue of price of admission.
In the articles, one of the main similarities is that education in America is becoming expensive. As a matter of fact, the aspect of educating siblings seems to be increasing the financial outlay of their budgets as compared to the home mortgages. There is mass attendance of college education in America and this is making many students pay a lot of money in order to get admission. In addition, the demand of education in America has increased due to the demand of more elite people in society. Liberal education is a reality in society and based on the article there is a correlation between the price of college admission and the number of college attendance in the world today.
Based on the articles the aspect of education is a reality. It is worth noting the essence of education has been made a culture in America. Education need to be made a culture and the main goal. The similarities are that the college education is important and paying the large amount of admission justifies the importance of education (Murray “Are Too many people Going to College?.” The demand that comes has a result of too many people going to college shifts the prices in college education. The nature of college education has been made a culture and the only way to bring in the aspect of price and college attendance is making it possible for all people to attend. The cost of college education and the increasing number of people attending college requires the streamline to fit all the people.
The participation of college education makes the knowledge acquisition the core culture in society. In the articles, the similarity comes in the aspect of knowledge acquisition. The price of college admission has actually increased, and on the same note the aspect of college admission as also increased (Bennett 35). The similarity is achieved by the move of American society to make the acquisition of knowledge an important goal and a culture in society.
The perceptive of the future brings in the aspect of similarity in the articles. The college education seems to loom high in the mind of Americans today. To many college education dictated the future and each one of focusing on getting the college education at the price it is stated. Large number of college admission focusing of economic payoff and economic analysis of attending college.
The differences are also evident in the articles. The main focus of price in increase in college admission and the increasing number of college attendance seem to bring in the variation (Graff 12). The increasing number of attendance of college is driven by the goal of getting a good job and money and becoming competitive and relevant in the American society. On the other hand, the increase in private and secondary admission price is driven by the urge o get the best education for the investment. The society view education as an investment and therefore the capital for investment is paying large admission fees. Basically, the college is taking a lot of roles in serving college students but the big problem is serving each one of it in the best way possible.
It is worth noting that the differences in the contemporary form of college education are that people focus on issue of job satisfaction rather than more. The college institutions take advantage of the situation by increasing the college admission price. Americans are increasingly joining college education regardless of the increase in admission salary. Hence, the articles focus on the difference of both college admission and the price of admission.
