  • 5. C oncluding P aragraph
    • Make a prediction
    • We have seen how the costs of attending
    • college have been rising while, at the same
    • time, sources of financial aid for students have
    • been disappearing. If this trend continues, fewer
    • and fewer families will be able to send their
    • children through four years of college.
  • 6. C oncluding P aragraph
    • Suggest results or consequences
    • To sum up, the costs of attending college are
    • up and financial aid for students is down. Fewer
    • and fewer future members of the workforce are
    • able to educate themselves beyond high
    • school. As a result, the nation will waste the
    • intelligence, imagination, and energy of a large
    • segment of the present college-age generation.
  • 7. C oncluding P aragraph
    • Suggest a solution, make a
    • recommendation, or call for action
    • It is clear that the U.S. system of higher
    • education is in trouble. For many students, four
    • years of college is no longer possible because
    • of increasing costs and decreasing financial aid.
    • To reverse this trend, we must demand that
    • government increase its financial support of
    • colleges and universities and restore financial
    • aid programs. Our future depends on it.
  • 8. C oncluding P aragraph Quote an authority on the subject In conclusion, costs are rising and financial aid is declining, with the result that many can no longer afford to go to college. If our nation is to prosper, increased government funding for education is essential, even if it required higher taxes. As Horace Mann argued in his Fifth annual report , an nation’s economic wealth will increase through an educated public. It is therefore in the self-interest of business to pay the taxation for public education.
