What is the relevance of higher education and formal degrees in today’s society? Does it really equip young people for the real world? Is there need to redesign models? And if so, how should we redesign it to make it truly worthwhile for students? Experts share their views.

What is the Value of Higher Education?

College degrees no longer guarantee gainful positions. In many parts of the world, graduate unemployment is hitting the crisis level. While data from the past decades shows that higher education has paid off well for most people, the rapidly changing labor market and the accelerating rise in tuition cause many to question the return on investment for a college education. Many argue that higher education is more about building students’ soul than training job skills. However, if college fails to prepare students for their first jobs, is it worth it anymore?

What is the relevance of a college education in today’s society? Do we need to redesign it to make it truly worthwhile for students? Experts share their views.

There is a loss, you have eaten the bitter will become later sweet. When you are grateful to the pain, you will sigh: bitterly know what is sweet. Sweet is more out of the bitter after the sweet is more moving. She has a cowardly father, a powerful mother, five brothers and sisters, but there is a poor family to the family wall. She had a beggar, slept on the bridge, put the stall, did not go to school. This is her childhood, when she over half a year after the memories of the first half of life, but that this is the best time of her life. After entering the puberty, her self-esteem does not allow her to continue to live such a life, she can no longer bear this kind of food and clothing for the sake of others. So she left the family, alone to another city hard work, the pursuit of her want life. A girl alone wandering outside, will encounter how many difficulties can be imagined. Nevertheless, she still insisted, and the fate of the fight. She did a lot of different work, went to many places, was deceived, was crowded, was ridiculed. Her efforts did not seem to let the tragic fate let her, but let her suffer more pain. When she finally found a better job, that from the time it is not very Tailai, but at this time was checked out of serious illness, if you can not pay high treatment costs, then she will have to wait for death at any time call. Life is just picking up she can not come up with so much money, there is no intention to tell this thing with his family. Even if the disease tortured her body and mind, she also support a person, this year she was only 35 years old. Perhaps her strong touched the gods, the doctor had determined that she can only live for up to two years, but more than a decade later, she is still alive, and finally no longer worry about food and clothing problems, you can always do things - - Painting. She painted a lot of memorable images are painted on paper, like a memorial, but also like a memorial to the past. She put the painting in a gallery to sell, many people began to pay attention to the poor, ill-fated female painter. When her work received a high gold content of the award, a reporter interviewed her, hoping to let her story so that more people know. When a reporter asked her what the happiest thing in her life was, she gave an unexpected answer. In the reporter that she would say that is to get the award to get this affirmative, she said she was sleeping with her parents in the streets, eating other people leftovers, and brother and sister to put the stall is her most memorable and happiest Of things. Reporters quickly asked her why, she said that although life is difficult, not enough to eat and sleep well, but then she did not need to worry about what, because parents and brothers and sisters are around. On the contrary, a person after leaving home, although life had a little better, but there is always a sense of loneliness, especially when seriously ill, really have thought of self-broken. But think of every day worry about their families, for her family to adhere to the present. So, she was very grateful that the hardships of the years to bring her sweet, so she can have today's life and performance. I do not know what kind of sweet, you will always encounter some difficulties, so you suffer pain and torture. But as long as you stick to the end, bitter will eventually become sweet, give you more powerful force to move forward.
