Education, Scott Adams, Mark Schneider
In Scott Adams essay How to get a real educate at college led me to question if students have the skills needed to work in society. According to Arguments given by Scott Adams, Rebecca Mead, and Mark Schneider demonstrate how education is an institution where students graduate and become unaware of the consequences after. This issue is important because it raises the question if it is worth getting an education. With this in mind what are we to expect from getting an education? Has it come to the point when students are not prepared after they graduate? To determine this I focus on arguments based on college graduates and find a solution.
Although their view is against the reasons of getting an education to be in a career with a high paying salary, they focus on different areas that contribute to the same argument. Adams argues that students who lack interest in subjects like chemistry, biology, mathematics, and physics should be taught useful skills they can apply to become entrepreneurs. Mead argues that there is a trend on how we view college as pursuing prestigious careers compared to an education that require and cultivate intellectual ability. She thinks we should get an education based on liberal arts. While Schneider argues about the idea of a college graduate making a million dollars in their life compared to non graduates Adams reasoning behind his claim is based on experience and what an education in entrepreneurship will do for you after college.

[...] For Mead the reason behind her claim caters more to the idea of what getting an education should be. Today it seems like students come to college and get a degree that will get them a job with a high paying salary. Obtaining a degree in accounting, business, or engineering are good professions that offer a high salary but it doesn't necessarily mean you will get one. You might get a job as a postal worker or customer service representative. [...]
