Analysis of article and information about my future studies

Some quotations:

  • "I've never let my school interfere with my education." Mark Twain
  • "You can drag my body to school but my spirit refuses to go." Bill Watterson
  • "A child educated only at school is an uneducated child." George Santayana

Exams I am going to take:

  • Mathematics
  • Information Technologies
  • Lithuanian language


Institutions for my further studies

Article "Hardships of Lithuania's higher education: free but not for all"

I agree:

· Studying is not equally accessible to everyone, as some students choose the profession they can afford, not the one they naturally incline towards.

· In Lithuania works principle 'your colleague's misfortune is your success'.

· A future musician must pay 20 thousand litas (5,8 thousand euros) per year, a physics student, 9 thousand, and a law student, 3 thousand, even though the one with a music degree is least likely to get a well-paid job.

I disagree:

· The professors suggest an audit be carried out to determine how many secondary school students, qualified for further studies, graduate each year.

· If bright students find themselves in the same room with the less able ones, the quality goes down.
