The other day in class, we watched a video on students going to college and getting an education. Are they really getting the quality education that society tells them they will get when they go to college? It is so easy nowadays to go to college and just breeze your way through without any problems. Students are doing less quality work but they are getting higher grades than they have gotten in the past. Why is that? Well professors are pressured to pass students because if they don’t then their job could be in danger. Students work has been poor that used to get a C or maybe a D is now getting a B or maybe even an A. Students even know that professors will give them a good grade on an assignment whether they put maximum effort in it or not. Honestly, why blame us students? If someone tells you that no matter how much time and effort you put into something that you are just going to get the same result, why bother to go the extra mile? I personally think students aren’t as lazy as people think, even though I just made a statement that made them seem lazy. I think students want to be challenged and they wanna learn. Why would they have made the choice to go to college when they could have gone straight into work? They want to challenge themselves so they can be ready for the future that awaits them. A lot of students get to college and they don’t feel like they are challenged enough. It is hard to change the habit of just doing enough. We must establish challenges early in a student’s college career. We need to change the mindset of both professors and students.
