前不久,湖南一位父亲拒不支付女儿大学学费,引发大众对于所谓“大学无用论”的探讨。
       What is the value of a university education?Some might say it is priceless and its valueimmeasurable.Others would disagree with that claim and insist that the rising cost of post-secondary schooling doesn’t always pay off in the long run.How Much Is a Degree Really Worth?(九年级阅读) - 称子英语 - 孙广趁教育教学工作室
 
  This was the argument of one father who refused to pay for his daughter’s higher education despite her desire to go to college.The father argued that four years of college in China could cost80,000yuan.Al-ternatively,if his daughter spent that time working,she would not only save that lump sum(一大笔钱),but she could potentially earn that much or more.He called college a“bad investment.”While some people would likely respond to the dad’s claimwith dropped-jawand furrowed(皱起的)brow,online polls suggest that some Chinese neti-zens are in agreement.Furthermore,many recent ar-ticles in the U.K.,U.S.A.and Canada suggest that parents and students are pausing to analyze the costs versus benefits of a bachelor’s degree in today’s e-conomy.
  In Canada,the cost of earning a degree is20per-cent higher than it was in the late2000s but the unem-ployment rate among university graduates is nowon-ly1.7percentage points lower than high school graduates.While a university education still increas-es your chances of finding a well-paying job,an in-creasing number of graduates are making it more and more difficult.
  Is the bottom line the only way to measure the worth of higher education?What about the argument that university graduates are more knowledgeable,have an increased ability to think critically*,and to solve problems creatively in an increasingly complex world?Those skills are difficult to assign a value to,but can prove invaluable to companies,communities and countries.
  Just as the price of a house doesn’t represent the value of your home,the income of a graduate isn’t the only measure of the value of an education.A home is what you make of it,as is higher education.It’s a framework for your life,where memories are created,lifelong friends are made,and you begin to shape a vision of your future as you grow into your own person.
  The key to success in life is complex and mul-ti-dimensional.An education is an important part of the picture.
