College - Not for Everyone

            College: an educational path students take to discover their potential future. When a student finally confronts the decision contemplating whether to go to college or not, the essential concern often involves the tuition and questions the tuition's worth. However, multiple cases exist in which a student is forced into a choice of not attending college due to a college's tuition yet become successful. The other side of the story involves students paying the fee but end up with an overwhelming debt, hindering the students' future. The increase in complaints made against the cost of college tuition and its quality can be attributed to a number of factors: the effect of unemployment rates on the economy; students paying for an education that high school can account for; and colleges employing a disproportionate number of part-time associate faculty members to full-time PhD-holding professors. College is not worth its exorbitant cost and varying degrees of quality teaching and provision of academic resources. .
             The cost that students pay for college does not give the most benefit for the student. Remote education such as distance learning or online courses helps save both the professor and students' money and time from traveling to a college campus. This kind of education ".makes it much easier for some students to complete a degree or get additional job-training while balancing work and family commitments" (Kaplan University 1) and allows students to learn and work at their own pace. Furthermore, students or professors who live in geographically remote areas can utilize this method to create a beneficial situation, saving thousands of dollars on traveling expenses. Another downside of college is that it does not secure the graduates a promising future since "one in three college graduates had a job that only required a high school diploma or less in 2012, including more than 16,000 parking lot attendants, 83,000 bartenders, and 115,000 janitors with bachelor's degrees" (ProConorg Headlines 1).
