The Piece of Paper The purposes that students attend a University are infinite One purpose of higher education is to keep students in line College prepares students for the long road ahead of them and allows them to pursue the career they desire Yet another purpose of secondary education is to get students ready to fit in to society Students also go on to college to attain a piece of paper which proves to others that they can complete a given task and that they can be institutionalized First Id like to express the way that I feel education keeps all students in line The way that education is given now I can see that everyone is taught the same way and the same material is used The students are taught to think about what the teacher has to say and not for themselves I believe as Paulo Freire that students are treated like receptacles of information into which teachers and professors throw information that they have gathered and are expected to regurgitate the information when called upon to do so Freire 54 This method of education turns students into machines of learning that are not able to think for themselves Throughout my education I have observed that most students will do the absolute minimum requirements without genuinely learning the information Students just want to pass the class and go play when all they did was rob themselves of true learning I recognize that I dont push myself to learn as much as I should because I w asnt taught how to expand my mind in the education system which I was placed After students go through the whole education process they are spit out the other end of college and are ready for society to mold them into what is necessitated at that time Second I believe that education no matter what the level prepares students to fit into the world
