Should college students be forced to take general education classes?

Yes

No

Is the question "should a college give its students a general education?"

That is kinda the point of the first two years of a college to get you educated so you can pick a major that is good for you.

If you know what you want to do right out of highschool; go to a trade school, where you aren't "forced to take general education classes".

Side: Yes

I can't go to a trade school to become a vet. Yet, I took history in elementary school, history in middle school, and history in high school, and I had to take history again for my bachelor's degree where they covered the exact same stuff. That's insane, and a waste of my time and money. I'm taking 7 classes at a time to make up for the damn core classes I'm not even going to use. I rarely will need to know who was president in 1916 (Woodrow Wilson) to treat a cat for a URI.

Side: Yes

A lot of people decide to change majors and general education better prepares them for the transitions.

Yes, general education should be provided for two reasons.

1. Much of it is baseline need for life.

AND

2. if you get too far down the path of a specific specialization, it might be too hard to change later!

Side: Yes

I really don't see the point in it...besides getting credits which is pretty lame anyway.

Side: No

I don't understand this at all. What more general education do you need after 13 years in the education system? Maybe USAians are a bit slow on the uptake :/ We choose what subject we want to study when we go to university - as adults.

I think yes, but if you add general subjects, then the number of credits will be very high and students will have to do even more tasks to get a good score. I am a university student and I understand how difficult it is to combine a university and a part-time job. Many do this thanks to services that help them to write the work. I do not see anything terrible or bad if it really helps. A year ago, I also used the https://essayexplorer.com/review/edusson service, which I found thanks to reviews on edusson.com and it helped me a lot, but I don’t know how much really to add general education classes is a good idea.

Side: No
