Looking for nonfiction resources for high school students can take time. Free or paid, finding nonfiction that will help you meet standards and interest students can be an endless search.
I am continuously searching for appropriate nonfiction.
I came across a nonfiction resource today – and I think it will interest students. Our students focus on college – and for good reason: many will be there in four years or less.
I was intrigued when I read about Starbucks CEO announcing the company would pay for employee’s college tuition. I was skeptical, but excited.
I worked multiple jobs through college, and I still had loans. A boost would have been helpful. I continued reading about the free college assertion, because I wanted to know how true it was. It is true – for certain locations – and Starbucks employees are ready to get their educations.
Sure enough, my continued researching found an opposing viewpoint today. David Perry wrote this in his article, Is Starbucks the answer to college costs? on CNN:
In fact, it would be a terrible thing for education to become another employer-dependent benefit.
