Should everyone go to college? Yes or no? Why or why not?
Nowadays, more people than ever before are attending institutions of higher learning (i.e. college). Today, many high school students think that attending college is mandatory; there is no other option but to attend college after graduating high school. This sentiment was strongly expressed in one of this week’s course readings. “I think you need to go to college. It’s just like high school and elementary school and middle school. I don’t know why, but I have that idea in my head.”
Should everyone go to college? Yes or no? Why or why not? Use specific reasons and examples to support whatever position you take on this matter.
