TOEFL essay No.7


The government should invest more money in children’s education than in college students. Agree or disagree?

How and where should a government allocate its limited education budget?
Some may argue that the government should invest more money in college students so that students can make a smooth transition to the society. However, I believe that the government should spend more money on education of children (ages 5 to18) because this is a critical period for children to develop healthy bodies and minds, more children than college students, and colleges have other financial sources.

First of all, the period between ages 5 and 18 is an important time for each child to develop a healthy body and mind. To develop a healthy body, enough money should be allocated to lunch and sports programs at school, so each child can eat and exercise properly. To promote a healthy mind, each child should be taught ethical values which form foundation for further development of each child. To be specific, when I was young, I had one class of ethical values every week and learned about how to become good citizens, helping those who cannot help themselves, being punctual, obeying laws and rules, responsibilities, honesty, integrity, caring, and so forth. These ethical values I learned during my childhood played an important role in my life thereafter, and for this reason the government should provide more financial support to children’s education.

Second, the number of children between ages 5 and 18 is at least 3 times the number of college students, considering the fact that not all high school graduates attend colleges. Furthermore, in my country, 80% of children attend public primary and secondary schools, while 40 % of students attend public universities and colleges. Accordingly, the government should allocate more money in children’s education.

Last but not least, most colleges have other financial sources such as donations from the alumni and private companies and revenues from the football, baseball, and other sports programs. For example, those universities that have very strong football programs receive millions of dollars by selling broadcasting rights of the football games to TV stations. In addition, those universities with strong science and engineering programs receive a significant amount of money from private companies for conducting joint research programs. Some universities actually are so successful financially that governmental subsidies are not needed.

In conclusion, as you can see from the examples I have provided, I believe that the government should invest more money in children’s education than in college students. The future of our country depends on these young children who have healthy bodies and strong ethical values.
