5 Things College Students Can Do to Be Successful in Life

As financial literacy is lacking in the world today, I am motivated to promote financial literacy. My experiences regarding high school, college and transitioning into adulthood after college, has inspired me to promote financial guidance to young adults by providing powerful and inspirational ways in which a student can take advantage of in order to achieve success after college life. Preparation for success begins years before a student attends college. Below are five things college students can do to be successful in life.

1. Prepare for the ACT/SAT in middle school or earlier so that there is a greater chance of scoring high on both tests, as higher test scores will provide the student a better chance of earning a scholarship. It is also important for students to get involved in extracurricular activities. Remember, college is still possible and can be affordable even when a student doesn’t have a scholarship.

2. Students must be mindful regarding the selection of his or her career choice. It is imperative for the student to identify and select the right career that will suit him or her long-term. Being indecisive in career choice and changing majors half way through college or later, wastes a tremendous amount of time and money.

3. Students must be aware of how important it is to obtain and maintain good credit. Without having any credit or good credit, a student can have a difficult time receiving lower interest rates on their car, house, etc. Higher interest rates will cause higher car, house and etc. monthly payments. The three credit bureaus report and provide credit history on each individual and demonstrate how well a person has been paying his or her bills. The credit rating score will determine what interest rate the individual will receive.

4. Students must prepare for the workforce while attending college. Without preparation prior to graduating from college, a student may struggle or find difficulty in landing a job in his or her field soon after graduation. Many employers seek individuals who have had experience in the field for at least one year and will not consider interviewing a student without experience.

5. Lastly, saving early for retirement is a must. Many young adults feel that they have plenty of time to save for retirement, but in reality they do not. I have heard so many adults say that they wish they started saving as soon as they started working as a young adult and regret not doing so because they have to work longer than desired.

In Conclusion, these are the five things that college students can do to be successful in life. College students deserve a shot a success. Take charge of your life and be the next success story!…

Will Private Schools Make a Difference in Our Child’s Education?

American schools are on negative news reports daily. From reports of bullying resulting in children being hospitalized, to drugs, gang violence and sexual assaults, the face of education is changing. Is a private school a viable alternative?

When deciding between public and private schools, one must consider multiple factors contributing to education. In current times, one must further consider physical safety issues. The advantages of a private education can far outweigh the disadvantages. The foremost reason is because private schools do not take public funds, and therefore are not required to provide the federally mandated components of IDEA, more commonly referred to as the No Child Left Behind Law. Under the said law, public institutions must provide a free and appropriate education for all children. That sounds great. To an extent, for some children, it is. For other children, it can be a nightmare.

If a student is bullied, notify administration. Sadly, if the student perpetrating the bullying behavior carries a special needs label, depending on the label in question; he or she may not be subject to discipline for bullying. Federal IDEA law mandates a Manifestation of Disability Review meeting. A school committee decides if the behavior in question could have in any way been a direct result of the disability. This, too many times, results in the bullying behavior going without negative consequences which serve to increase the likelihood of behavior repetition.

In private settings, discipline issues are addressed based on the merits of the behavior allowing for the protection of the entire student body. Any student determined to be a danger can be removed from the school. Public schools cannot expel a special needs labeled student, if the behavior is determined to be a direct result of a disability.

Private schools have lower class sizes affording students more one on one instructional time. With cuts to federal funding, class sizes in public schools will continue to grow. In either setting, the teacher is the primary component in determining the quality of a child’s education. While public schools are required by law to employ certified teachers, private schools are not. That is not to say that private school teachers are less qualified, just that they may not be certified. Unions ensure public school teachers remain in classrooms. Performance determines that in private schools.

Lastly, private schools move through material faster because they teach to the level of all students. Public schools revolve around state testing, so classes are taught to the lower levels. For more gifted students, it means constant repetition of skills mastered. Private schools are in a better position to keep more gifted students engaged. If one but looks to elected leaders, one sees the children of said group predominantly enrolled in private institutions. The vast majority of those students go on to college. If the very ones designing and enforcing laws over public education decided to place their own little darlings in private schools, it says a lot about our leader’s faith, or the lack …
