Higher Education, Boyers, McMahon
According to Boyers (2014), so many people face the dilemma of whether high education is worth. Since ancient time, people already knew the importance of education. Most parents globally ensure that their children do not miss school. As time goes by, the educational system continues to improve. There is not only basic education, that most people pursue and also higher education. Obviously, high education is not as popular as basic education, so does that means high education in not such importance? Undoubtedly, the response is "No." Higher education is means that a student enrolls to the college or university to study and graduate successful to take their degree. It also means the student should have ability to get knowledge and skills in specified fields. Students must make a lot of sacrifices to go through higher education and also comes in handy with great control and vision. University is not only a place to get knowledge, but also to enrich spiritual connotation and cultivate students' taste. In the modern world, everybody should be in a position to pursue higher education. Boyers (2014) insists that the benefits of higher education, by far, out ways the few excuses of not pursuing it.
Higher education does not only empower people and make the whole society prosperous, but it also ensures that the general knowledge of a person is boosted in other key areas such as personal health. The higher the level of education by individuals, the greater the likeliness of living a longer life. According to McMahon (2009), many people who pursue high education tend to me more health conscious and have adaptive lifestyles. Obesity risk and other examples of health conditions are increased by lack of physical activity and also linked to the lack of education. In addition, the use of drugs and other illegal substances is greatly associated with people who are undereducated. Hough (13) claims that there is evidence that people who have sacrificed to pursue higher education have well paying jobs that enable them to have money to enroll in the gym and other physical activities to ensure their health is not at risk.
[...] This is the difference between basic education and high education. High education in not only teach students the knowledge, but also tell students how to perfect themselves in many different parts and do a good job in the community. With the development of the technology, most companies have a higher requirement for hiring employee. If you got high educational degree, it becomes a walk in the park to get a good job as opposed to the people who did not study in college or university. [...]
[...] In another perspective, high education is not very worth for all students. Nowadays, more and more companies require people who will be hired should have work experience, and this is a threshold for most graduate students. Life in university is colorful and comfortable, a majority of students just happy-go-lucky, they do not want to be tired, then they just graduate easily. After completing high school, life dawns on then and have to face the cruelty of the society. Most students will fear hard working and low salary. [...]
[...] Some people have argued that high education is not necessary. They have in addition tried to give examples like Steve Jobs and the likes that are currently successful even without having gone through high education.

In addition, they have less time and money to spend with their families and friends. [...]
[...] It is true, the tuition fee is high. According to Forbe (2012), debt is also a concern that hits the students and makes them reluctant to take the loans to cope up with the increasing tuition fee. This makes so many students give up halfway on high education and end up dropping out of school. Colleges, on the other hand, have ensured that no one is locked out as they have regulated their policies so as to accommodate individuals who had significantly lower grades. [...]
[...] From the first day in school, education has played a major role in our society. It is crystal clear that the benefits of higher education out ways the few reasons individuals give on why they do not pursue it. We all want a life that is secure in terms of employment and ability to meet our own needs. Through higher education, this dream is achievable.
