I know in my country and city offer free universities courses for under privileges like:
Those coourses are made possible due churches, individual donors and teachers
I don't know if US has that in place but think would be a good suggest to implement.
In regards to education and vocational training, most anyone can attend that wants to go and
keep up their grades. Colleges are two year programs. For example, I have an AA degree in
General Studies. That is, an Associates of Arts degree in General Studies. That is a two year
program of general classes such as English, Literature, Art, Math, Science, Economics, Business,
Sociology, Psychology, etc. For people that want to pursue a Bachelors degree, such as myself,
attending a college first, is a good way to go about it if a university is not in your city. After
receiving the AA degree, I had to move to a city where a university was available.
Colleges in the USA, although primarily two year programs, often offer some other degrees such
as a one year program. An example is LPN program that is approximately 13 months. That
is Licensed Practical Nursing.
After moving to another city where the university is located, I focused my studies in Rehabilitation
Education and Psychology. In the USA, four year degrees consist of the first two years, primarily
of social sciences (hence my AA degree) so those classes were already out of the way for me. My
classes at the University were classes such as Psychology of Learning, Psychology of Aging,
Social Psychology, History of Psychology, etc. Rehab classes focuses on Disabilities, Physical,
Mental, Counseling, etc. Additional classes also such as Sign Language. I thought I might manage
an education house for the deaf, or find it desirable at some point.
We also have Technical Schools in the USA. Tech schools may be short training courses of even
last an entire year. Vocational Technical Schools is more what they are referred as. For example
a Cashier Course trains for working in a store with cash registers. Sounds simple but they do have
training for it. Also, automobile mechanic training.
There is no loss for education in the USA. If you have the ability, you can usually attend.
To get into College and University in the USA, you must have a high school diploma and you
must pass the entrance exams. After passing, you may declare your Minor and your Major.
Government Grants are offered to students in a lower income bracket. The government grants
you do not pay back. The government grants will generally cover your tuition and even the
cost of the books. Now this depends on qualifications AND the NUMBER of grants you can get
AND the State in which you reside. This is because there may be MORE than one type of
government grant you qualify to receive. You might also qualify for State grants. These are
in the form of checks. You take the check to the bank and cash the check. You then use the
money to pay your tuition for that semester and pay for your books. After that, you may have
some money left and you may not. If you are fresh out of high school, you may qualify for
dormitory grant. Dormitory grants are usually good only for the first two years of university.
Colleges do not have dorms.
You must keep up at least a C average in order to continue to receive grants every semester.
That is a 2.0 average. You must have at least a 2.0 average to graduate. 4.0 is the highest.
4.0 = A
3.0 = B
2.0 = C
Some places of employment will pay you to go to college or university. They will reimburse
your semester of tuition when you give them a copy of your grades or grade point average.
It's one major reason for the term 'land of opportunity' because anything you want to be,
you can be if you have the desire, knowledge, and work ethics to do it such as studying
