GRE Essay Topic 222 - Present your perspective on the issue below, "College and university education should be free for all students, fully financed by the government."
Education should not be for free at all levels
One of the most important things in life is to learn as much as you can; from the day you are born until the day you die, the only thing that you can take with you to the grave is what you have learned in this world.Every children has the right to go to school and learn the basics in life, and all the governments in the world have the responsability to make that happen, even if the child does not have the resources to pay for that education; but, when it comes to grown up people, there should be a minimun of challenge so that they would be obligated to face their circumstances and evaluate their weaknesses and strenghts before they take the step that could change their lives for ever.
The world is constantly changing and every day it becomes more challenging for young people to stand out, even to be updated with all the new information. That is something that would be easier if you really know what you want and do what you really love to do.
It would be too expensive for any government to pay for every oneÂ´s education. Nevertheless, governments do encourage people to make a bigger effort in order to get other kinds of help like scholarships. ItÂ´s only the search for excellence that makes a country inspire their residents to be excellent in whatever they do.
For example, in my country, public schools are not as good as private schools; but in order to enter to the public University, wich are better than private Universities, they only consider your grades in highschool, wich are not representative in some cases because the level of demand is not the same; and an SAT that everyone presents after graduating highchool. People who doesnÂ´t have the proper preparation will enter to the University and choose careers that demand such base because they donÂ´t care if they spend double the years in University because it is free. That keeps other students that would probably stand out from getting in, due to installation capacities. This people would not waste their time and governments money if they only had to pay for it.
ItÂ´s important to help every person to become the best person they can , but, make governments pay for everyoneÂ´s education is not the solution. The real help would be to motivate people to work for what they want, knowing that they will get a reward for all the hard work.
