Education system needs reform.

TomWarner

Let me preface this with the elementary grades are good and should stay as they are now, but Middle school and high school need to be reformed. The main reason the school system needs to be reformed is because students aren't learning. Not learning means most of the information that students are supposed to learn isn't being remembered after they aren't learning it any more. This is a problem because when students apply to college they may have good grades, but they don't know most of t...

Is College Worth It For Everyone (USA)?

The question at hand is "Is college worth it for everyone (USA)?". Pay key attention to the word "everyone". It plays the most important role in the question and if absent would completely change the meaning of the question. I added the "USA" in parenthesis because college is much different in the US compared to other countries. Many other countries have different requirements and much cheaper costs for college. College is not for everyone. To understand the purpose and meaning of col...
