The first map describes an island before the development of tourism, while the second one illustrates the same island after constructing some tourist facilities. According to the first map, the total length of the island is about 230 meters, and there are some trees in the west and east of the island. Besides, a beach is located on the west.
Turning to the next map, the east part of the island nearly remains constant, but there are significant changes after developing tourism. First, two accommodation areas are established in the west as well as in the middle of the island with footpaths linking each house. Between them, there is a restaurant in the north and a reception in the south, both of which are connected by vehicle tracks directly to the pier where sailing boats are parked. Additionally, swimming is available for tourists now probably due to the newly-built footpaths which link the west accommodation area with the beach.
To summarize, considerable changes take place on the island after the development of various tourist facilities.
It is right that college graduates earn higher salaries than the less well-educated in the community. So they should also pay the full cost of their study. Do you agree or disagree with this statement?
In view of the fact that people who have college qualifications may enjoy prospects of higher earnings, some people, therefore, argue that tuition fees should be paid all by students themselves rather than be partially compensated by the government. Personally, I do not agree.
One of the reasons is that paying the full cost means students from underprivileged families may find it impossible to afford the tuition fees required by the university. As a consequence, the drop-out rate among lower-income families might be increased. Worse still, the gap between the rich and the poor may be further enlarged since receiving higher education has always been regarded as a prerequisite of obtaining jobs with higher earnings. The second reason of not paying the full cost is that higher education is for public good, by which I mean ensuring that citizens receive higher education is crucial for social advances, not only for personal development. As a matter of fact, no matter what kind of occupation we have in the future, we will contribute to the country in our own way, such as being a tax-payer.
Admittedly, if college tuition is all paid by students themselves, the burden of the government will obviously be relieved. Therefore, more financial resources will be devoted to other civil constructions, such as building subways or medical care, which is also a way of making citizens’ lives much easier.
To summarize, I am firmly convinced of that students should not pay the full cost of their college studies mainly because of the possible financial difficulties which will be faced by underpaid families as well as the nature of higher education.
