The debate in the article Saying No to College is if college is necessary or not. The topic is based on still succeeding without going to college. There are several points or reasons why not going to college is a better choice. The arguments being made is that education is a mind-set. According to the article some people want to “stretch out and create more” but college has limits to these desires. The article argues that many have succeeded without going to college. People have become billionaires and have not gone to college or have dropped out. Others who have graduated from college say that it was a big waste of time and they regret it. The side that I fond most persuasive is attending college. This is because in my opinion going to college is mostly mandatory in order to have a better future than others. College seems to guarantee you a good future at least. If there was no goal to attend a college then there would be no reason for schools at all. Not everybody is born with such a creative mind or to even have the motivation to do anything extravagant. If more students dropped out then it would be more competitive to get into any organizations.
The reasons that the side I disagree with has is that there is no need for a number of psychologists or lawyers. Also that going to college might be a waste of time when you can brainstorm about new ideas and new inventions. This challenges my side because I wouldn’t want to waste my time when it seems that I can make billions. My best response to this challenge is that my future is at risk and it would still be competitive and frustrating to do anything new, or even work for an organization. In which I rather stay going to college and at least have something secured.
