From Plato to Confucius, from Bacon to Nietzsche, different people hold differing / varying views.

In recent decades, its practical function, namely, a way for students to find better employment, has been increasingly emphasized by the general public.

The main aim of university education is, or should be, career-oriented.

The friendship between us was, is and will be forever.

Despite its contribution to students ’ employment, university education has more benefits to offer to both individuals and the society as a whole.

The most important function of education at any level is to develop the personality of the individual and the significance of his life to himself and to others.

This is the basic architecture of a life; the rest is ornamentation and decoration of the structure.

What a university should mainly focus on is the so-called personality education, which would benefit its

Inevitably, some things and subjects that are considered to be less important must be left out.

Teachers should be considered as a designer, a helper, an organizer as well as an actor / performer instead

of a leader in the modern classroom.

The education system becomes too focused on academic subjects, leaving our children without key practical skills.

University education offer less and less important career-oriented courses to students, leaving their graduates unemployed.

Many people argue that schools should focus on teaching academic

subjects whilst more practical, non-academic ones should be learnt outside schools, especially in the home from parents.

Clear-cut answers to the question have hardly been found so far.

division between academic subjects and practical skills.

For instance, the ability to make a presentation is an interpersonal skill that is useful both in the academic world and in the workplace.

The ability to manage household finances is a practical skill that uses an academic knowledge subject like mathematics.

It is not so bad to separate students and nurture them individually that the authorities should take into consideration their pupils ’ own preference as to being in or out of one particular group, thus, the benefits of this system can be maximized.

The economically disadvantaged groups, such as children of impoverished farmers in remote rural areas and laid-off workers in cities, may be put at an extreme disadvantage should be assured of an

equal chance to access the university education by the government. What is more, it is also a scheme to reduce the disparities between the two classes so as to enhance the social harmony.


Opponents may refute this on the basis that the government budget is never unlimited.

The limited budget should be prioritise d and education of people should be the first priority.

The government loan allows the students, the impoverished ones in particular, to go on with their further education in university regardless of their economic status.

The government does not shoulder too much financial burden beyond its capacities .

I am in support of this strategy.

The Internet is developing at a surprising speed and is changing the whole way of our life and education. Discipline

There is no denying that the Internet plays an important role in the domain of education but, as far as I am concerned, it is far from enough to ensure an education as comprehensive and wholesome as

schools do.

Admittedly, the Internet is doomed to play an inevitable role in children ’s education.

If a student cannot explore the virtual world by using IE or Firefox, etc., he or she will be in danger of being kept from what is going on in the world.

that they can browse for more detailed information about the subjects discussed in class, gaining a deeper insight into the events or experiments and acquiring a multi-dimensional understanding of the current issues, since so greatly can a variety of related information be accessed by some powerful search engines such as Google, or Baidu.

This does not automatically mean the Internet can play all the roles a school can, nor that it can take the place of school education.

School education always is, and will remain, essential for children ’s upbringing, because it is not only a platform to impart knowledge but also a stage to educate an individual about values and attitudes, rights and wrongs, goods and evils.

At school, children who are encouraged by their teachers and accompanied by their peers, can benefit in a wider range.

They are more likely to be sociable and outgoing, cooperative and


The Internet can hardly serve these functions.


Children are not mature enough to make a good judgment and their parents, always busy working and absent from home.

Overall, we can see that schools are actually necessary even in the so-called Internet Age and young students should also be encouraged to master the computer skills to

ensure a better future.

The reason for this tendency is partly because, as increasingly more research on genetics indicate these days, genes inherited from parents exert a constant, repetitive profound /far-reaching impact on their

intelligence or behaviours during the whole life of children.

Children for their first 3 to 5 years should stay with their parents for most of the time, when a series of / a wide range of / a great variety of habits, behaviours, even the values and attitudes of life are well-informed, which will definitely have a decisive influence on the future.

functions in their pupils ’ development in terms of both intelligence and social skills.

Brand new




Win-win situation

Most of teachers are well-trained in the related areas such as pedagogy, educational psychology, so they have

obvious advantages over parents when school subjects are concerned.

Teachers are more likely to interest children in a smarter way, prompt them to social activities and enhance their communication skills as well as cooperation spirit.

Overall, this is a question to which no clear-cut answer can be found until now. Both factors should be valued for a better development of children.

Yet we are still unable to decide whether an individual ’s personality and development are more influenced by genetic factors (nature ) or by the environment (nurture ).

It seems that the experiences we have in life are so unpredictable and

so powerful that they can boost or over-ride other influences, and there seems to be plenty of research findings to confirm this.

Instead, the traits we inherit from our parents and the situations and experiences that we encounter in life are constantly interacting. It is the interaction of the two that shapes a person’s personality and dictates how that personality develops.

In recent years, graduates are find ing it increasingly difficult to find an ideal job after school or university, thus youth unemployment is becoming a relatively new issue for many countries in the world.

This essay will take a close examination of the severe consequences it may lead to and put

forward some moderate proposals. One of the most immediate effects is that those jobless graduates cannot find a way to earn a living, thus unable to cover the loans which they had for their expensive education and to support their families, creating much pressure on themselves and other family

This is far from a personal or private problem, it is also a problem for the

society as a whole.

When the rate of youth unemployment rises, it may increases the chance of social instability, for the jobless young people with resent and disappointment may easily form gangs or groups to commit robbery or other more serious crimes.

It is really a thorny issue for the government to address deliberately and carefully.

The possible solutions are always

under discussion at both personal and government level.

Some people suggest that governmental allowance for the unemployed should be made a policy in order to maintain social stability as well as give them a better living.

Others think that postgraduate enrollment should be enlarged to relieve / ease the problem to a certain extent.

Live up to one’s expectations

One point I would like to make is concerning young graduates

themselves, who should be advised to lower their unrealistic expectations and embark on some seemingly more fundamental work, for example, that in the communities or rural areas, which is indeed not that “bad ”.

This may work efficiently to reduce the current unemployment rates.

The reasons for this may involve three major aspects.

Working parents spend the vast majority of their time in their offices or even work overtime at home, since they want to ensure an advantageous position in the fierce competition.

Consequently, they have little time for communication with other family members, which possibly result in the increasing alienation in the


A similar case happens to children.

To solve this problem, the crucial point is to ensure sufficient time spent together and enhance the communication between different family members.

Moreover, some traditional values about family closeness should be imparted to the younger generation whether at home or school in their early age, when it is easier to shape a correct attitude towards family.

Overall, great efforts from both parents and schools should be highly desirable to reverse the trend. tendency

Thanks to the development of communication technology, nowadays we can accomplish many of our everyday tasks without meeting each other in person, such as paying bills and buying books. In my point of view, it has both positive and negative effects for individuals as well as our society.

It is clear that fulfilling some tasks without seeing people face to face is highly efficient.

Thus, efficiency of work and life has

been both highly improved owing to the technological advances. Another problem may lie in the fact that people might become somewhat indifferent and feel isolated in the long run without meeting others face to face, since they are emotional creatures.

Overall, there exist both favorable and unfavorable effects on individuals and society if everyday tasks are performed without people meeting each other.

Personally, I am optimistic about its future and I also fully understand the necessity for both individuals and government to pay adequate attention to the safety of such dealings.

It is undeniable that, in terms of speed, cell phone and email surely beat the traditional way.

Besides, the convenience of modern communication is unparalleled.

So letter writing is still necessary even in this Internet era and sometimes unique with its physical being as against other virtual forms of communication.

Clearly, there is still a place for the hand-written letter and there is no evidence that this place will be taken

by technology in the future. As far as I am concerned, different communication ways suit different situations. None is going to disappear. The skill of writing letter would exist as long as human civilisation world.
