My View on College Students’ Quitting School
In recent years, more and more college students quit school ahead of schedule.Except the minority quitting for objective reasons like health problem,most students leave with the pursuit of an ideal career, as well as more experience and fortune.Several factors may contribute to its emergence.
In the first place, some students think that the opportunity cost of spending four years on college campus is too high,and the job market competition is getting fiercer.
Therefore, when there’s a satisfying job available, it’s worth quitting.In the second place, some hold that the real world is a better school for them to get practical knowledge than traditional schools.
Last but not least, the publicizing and popularity of some successful businessmen like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs,who didn’t finish school but ended up with a great fortune and achievement,
set examples for the young generation emphasizing individuality and personality.
However, I don’t think it’s rational for college students to quit school.Armed with high education and more mature personality, better-prepared graduates can fight for their future more easily.
In a word, college education pays off.
