As world’s standard is becoming higher and higher, education has become a mandatory task that we have to face and the popularity of higher education has become more intense. Within these requirements higher education has naturally become a necessary process to prepare for the future happiness. During the commencement speech at Bowie State University, Michelle Obama, a wife of former U.S president and an American lawyer has mentioned, “Today, getting an education is as important if not more important than it was back with this university was founded” (Obama, 2013, pp.). In the speech, she overly repeats that higher education is a key to have tremendous privileges to our own and to our next generation. Like this, our society is desiring for higher and more complexed and efficient education all the time. Despite the fact that everyone wants and needs a college degree to success their life, Stephanie Owen, a journalist, believes that telling all young people to go to college is not needed, as we are not helping them but doing them a disservice (Owen, 2013, pp.).
