important than university professors. Like P2 - what does “importance” mean? One could reason that without a university education, citizens may have less success in employment - couldn’t this lead to an opposing argument: that university education, while based on elementary teachings, is more important overall? P2 + C1 are relevant to the MC. C2: If by basic skills, the arguer means that elementary learning gives students foundational skills - and it would seem that this is what the author intends - then this seems acceptable based on common knowledge. P3: This premise is acceptable based on common knowledge too. Engaging in university studies requires high school learning, which requires elementary school learning. C2 + P3 are relevant to C1. P4: Provisionally acceptable. Also, it would be helpful to know what types of “educators” agree on this. P4 is relevant to C2. This argument has some merit in that the arguer does at least demonstrate that the work of elementary school teachers is valuable to society. It’s not enough to prove that they should be paid more than university professors though. What’s missing is any information and rationale on the work of professors, what they contribute, why it is less important, etc.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
