Is it easier to get educated?
TOEFL Writing assignment, 2018 summer.
Education is influencing more people than it did in the past, with better quality and quantity. But many people think that it is much harder to get educated now than it did in the past. However, I cannot agree with them.
Firstly, it is much easier to get into the university. Though the tuition is much higher in the past, the average family income is more. In another words, we have much more income to pay the university expanses with a little increase. Students who are really unable to pay the university tuition can make a loan from the bank. There are no worries about the tuition. Also, the university recruits more students instead of a small part of people, the university education is no longer exclusive for the rich families. There are even new standards of entering to the university and laws to provide fairness. So, it is absolutely wrong that it is hard to get into the universities.
Secondly, many people are also worried about the elementary education. In China and many other countries, the compulsory education is provided for children. With the compulsory education, tuitions and other stuff about education are free, parents are not going to worry about the educational expanse. Furthermore, in some parts of China, the high school education is free. Also, the Chinese Government spends money aiding students with economical problems. There are many policies to enable minorities people to get educated more easily. Comparatively, there were even not words called “compulsory education”. Therefore, elementary education, without doubt, is easier to acquire now.
What is more, the higher technology enables people to attain good education resources instantly. Many websites like Coursera and Khan Academy, are promoting the educational open for the remote students. And students sitting in the classroom can also learn using iPads and Virtual Reality, illustrating vividly. People are paying more attention to the education and treating it as the first priority. Many universities are recording class to the public on the Internet, so that students from all over the world can learn knowledge without barriers.
In conclusion, students are living in a better era with more educational promotions. The modern technologies, the policies and laws, the financial progress enable us to study more efficiently than it did in the past. Therefore, without doubt, students can attain education more conveniently.
