School plays a very important role in our life. Many of us will spend more than fifteen years at school in order to meet the qualifications that are required to work in a specific field. Of course, those years are broken down into several levels, some of them being littler of a struggle than others. Two important periods that we go through are high school and college. Even though most people would think that these two types of schooling are similar, there are significant differences between them. The cost of high school education bares a significant difference from that of the cost for a college education. Relationships amongst teachers and students are poles apart, as is the workload. Most likely, the social environment also differs from high school to college.
It is true to say that college is more expensive than high school. Obviously, it provides a higher level of education, but by having such high fees it doesn't give people coming from a low-income household a chance. Also, in college you have to buy your own books whereas in high school students are loaned books. If the government paid for books for college as it does for high school more people might be able to afford going to college. And as if paying for books isn't enough, many cities do not have colleges, so students who want to get a higher education have no choice but to move away to another city and sometimes-another state. This often involves paying for an apartment and for food. Even taking the bus for transportation cost a good amount of money, unlike high school where students ride for free. Last year alone, my good friend Shane spent over one hundred dollars on transportation alone. As you can see, college is a lot more expensive than high school. .
However, the cost is not the only thing to consider when comparing high school and college, the relationships between teachers and students are also different.
