7-10 paged argumentative paper

Question Description

I’m stuck on a Writing question and need an explanation.

For this assignment, you will have the opportunity to explore research and theory relative to leadership in higher education. As a doctoral student, research is a major part of your life and will continue to be a part of your life even after you have earned the doctoral degree. As a leader in higher education, critical thinking is used on a daily basis to make decisions, plan, and lead followers through major and minor change. Leaders in higher education are faced with pressures and arguments about the decisions they make and the directions they do, or do not, take.

You will research one of the following topics:

  • The argument that U.S. higher education cost does not equal the value
  • The argument that U.S. higher education is failing to educate
  • The argument that elected officials impact higher education negatively

Argue both sides of the issue using scholarly articles from the library. Your paper must include a statement of the problem, a summary of the literature you found, any theories and approaches suggested by authors, and a conclusion with the recommendation to best address the issue.

Length: 7-10 pages, not including the title and reference pages

References: Include a minimum of seven scholarly resources.

Academic Integrity As an accredited university, Northcentral adheres to high standards of academic integrity. Students are expected to read and understand the Northcentral academic integrity requirements and follow them carefully throughout their course of study at Northcentral. Violations of these standards, whether intentional or unintentional, are reported by course Faculty to the Dean’s Office, and a series of consequences follow, ranging from a warning and the opportunity to resubmit the paper (first violation only), grade penalties for the activity, course failures, and dismissal from the university. To become familiar with these standards, complete the following:   Read the Northcentral University Academic Integrity Policy.  Take the Academic Integrity Questionnaire. Test your knowledge of the Northcentral Academic Integrity Policy by taking the Northcentral Academic Integrity Questionnaire.  Review the section in the Academic Success Center on Choosing to Summarize, Paraphrase, or Quote. You can find this section in the Writing Handbook under Drafting. Review this website, which is related to the same topic: Successful vs. Unsuccessful Paraphrases. As mentioned above, incorrect paraphrasing is the number one reasons students at Northcentral receive violation letters. Review the Academic Integrity Tutorial. The Integrity Tutorial explains the academic integrity policy more in depth and will direct you to resources that will help you learn the necessary skills to maintain integrity in academic writing. Northcentral University holds strongly to its values, one of which is integrity. We require students to use scholarly resources for academic papers and have designed and maintain a state-of-the-art online library to ensure our students have access to the resources they need. We also recognize the importance of information literacy, and through tutorials and course activities, educate our students on this topic. However, we do not endorse websites that give access to student papers for a fee or that require students to submit their own class papers for access. Selling or sharing course papers through these sites is highly discouraged. Sites containing assignment papers by Northcentral students will be contacted for removal. Students are also asked to refrain from using these sites for academic purposes, specifically using another student’s work within the body of their paper. Using another student’s work for one’s own grade stands in direct violation of Northcentral’s Academic Integrity Policy and/or Code of Conduct. If you find that you are unsure of the answers in the Academic Integrity Tutorial, go back and review the Academic Integrity Policy. Learning this information now will help you avoid difficulties in the future. APA Form and Style The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association is the gold standard for professional and academic writing and is the style used at Northcentral. Mastering APA form and style takes time, and there’s no time like the present to begin! For starters, you will review some of the basic APA writing rules, especially those that apply to citation and references. How to Read a Scientific Paper A scientific or research paper is a special type of document, and it requires special reading skills. Check out the resource How to Read a Scientific Paper found in the Books and Resources for this Week for some tips on how to read a research paper efficiently to make the most of the material in the least amount of time! ...

The Worth of a Higher Education?




It has been debatable over whether gaining a higher education is worth the costs since the
first colonists arrived and founded what was known as, "New College." This college was later
renamed to be Harvard University founded in 1636. There millions of college students in debt
with the average debt being near $30,000 (Baum, 2013). Those who argue that gaining a college
degree is well worth it. Some states that the reasoning's behind their arguments are: better and
higher paying jobs, work benefits are grander than those who have only gotten a high school
diploma or GED, and the society find them to be more intelligent and professional at what they
do (Green, 2015).
However, there are those who oppose such arguments and states that obtaining a higher
educational degree leaves the student in too much debt, thus delaying graduates from saving for
retirement, purchasing a home, or even getting married and building a family. They also contend
that many people doesn't even graduate with a college degree while still maintaining
productively and comfortably in the society while some jobs don't require college degrees. Due
to the tuition of college being on the rise just since the past decade, one must decide if they want
to accrue the financial costs to obtain a degree, or if they want to enter the workforce at the entry
level hoping to make it higher up. Such decisions are going to affect their lives professionally,
personally, and financially either way they choose.
There are many pros of one gaining a college degree. Some may benefit economically,
financially, socially, or by other means. Others may just benefit personally and professional from
obtaining a higher educational degree. The economic benefits come from the increased wages
that one can earn that is typically greater than those who haven't gained a higher educational
level. Those who pursue a college degree develops aptitudes, skills, and other characteristics that
set them apart from those who don’t (Meyers, 2015).



This alone can establish the fact that it is implying those who earns a college degree
benefits because they reflect grander opportunities in the workforce while having different
abilities and adding more value to the companies as workers. Being a college graduate allows
one to rise out of poverty. When one obtains a higher education, they will benefit with outcomes
that will provide a successful and upfilling life for them. The poverty rates are forever rising due
to economic and social issues that have occurred throughout America.
Another reason as to why earning a college degree can be beneficial is how technology
has advanced over the years. Since technology is now allowing college students to attend classes
online, more students are wanting to achieve their goals a...
