“There are in nature neither rewards nor punishments — there are consequences.” Said Robert Ingersoll. A lot of students choose to drop out from college but they are not ready for the consequence. Students see dropping out from college as the easy way out and short cut to success. It is undeniable that school is not for everyone but neither is dropping out. Most successful school dropouts are highly intelligent and they are very aware of what their next step is going to be after they drop out. Nevertheless, a number of students that drop out are not aware of what their action is going to bring. It is clear that US is suffering from college dropout and it is not only affecting the student’s life but the country as a whole. College dropouts are losing nearly $15 billion in earnings over their work lives, costing the federal government more than $3 billion in lost income taxes. However, like any other problem we can solve this issue as long as everyone is willing to pitch in. Moreover, like any other problem, we need to find the source for the cause before jumping to the solution. There are so many reasons why students drop out from colleges. Some of them, As Brian Pivik’s article mentioned on the Atlantic, could be because School costs too much, students need to get a full time job to support themselves and family, family issue, stress, and students are not sure if they like their major or if they have to complete a full degree to get a job. In addition, students are unprepared for the work load or atmosphere at college. They may also face a personal emergency or they may have too much fun out of class and lack of advising. we can avoid students from dropping out in so many ways. However, Colleges alone cannot fight the battle. Everyone has to help out with every force they have. Thus, the only way we can see the effects of our actions is if parents, students, college and the society work hand in hand to reduce the amount of students dropping out from school. Many colleges are not using all the tools that they have to raise graduation rate, said David L.Kirp on the new York times, instead they blame and hide behind the idea that high schools are not preparing their students for college. It is indeed undeniable that high schools could work harder to make the students ready for college but Colleges can also work with the society to raise funds for students that have a financial need, work with students individually to guide them find their passion and making the work load flexible for those students who are facing a psychological problem like stress. Parents could also help their kids find out what their true passion is, by guiding them in the right direction instead of pushing them in the path that they chose for them. Everyone has a role in life thus everyone should work toward finding that role than following the crowd. Parents could also try to find out if their kids are being affected by the problems they have at home and if so, they should get them some help. “There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up”, John Holmes. The society could play a big role in student’s life. A small contribution could change the lives of millions. For example, there are a lot of professionals in the society that can volunteer in tutoring and guiding students in college. Last but not least, students are the key to solving the problem of reducing the amount of students drop out. The society, colleges and parents can try to solve the issue but students play the vital role in making others action be practical. If students are not open to the help and if they don’t do their best to avoid dropping out from college, then others hard work will be for nothing. People can pave the way but students have to be willing to walk on it to succeed. Students also have to try not to be influenced by their society and should have a clear notion of what they're doing there. In addition, they have to be ready for the work load they are going to face at college in order to succeed. However, if they decide not to go to college, they have to be sure they have a thought out plan to support themselves and be independent. Therefore, we can only solve problems if we work together. Everyone is a link for a chain; having only one link will not be useful for a big purpose. If everyone comes together and form the chain, it will be unbreakable. No problem will stand against it. Colleges are not the only place we have to point to when we hear the problem college dropouts. This is because; four of our fingers will be pointing toward us. Let’s work together for the greater good.
