In “College is a Waste of Time and Money,” Caroline Bird debates the value of a college education, while in “Blue-Collar Brilliance,” Mike Rose appreciates different ways of using thinking and writing skills in non-college related work.
For this essay, using your own experiences and knowledge (from observations, current news stories, etc.) and quotes from the two authors (no other outside secondary sources are to be quoted, referenced, and/or cited), write a 1,100-word response to how relevant a college education is today. Use a combination of writing patterns (e.g., compare/contrast, cause and effect, argument, but not limited to these) to develop your discussion.
PLEASE USE QUOTES AND CITE THEM FROM THE TWO ESSAYS LISTED ABOVE.
