The message in our Persuasive speech “Students should learn not earn applies to parents as well as to students. This speech persuades us that students should study rather than work long hours for low wages. It points to the drop- out rate at colleges and how working interferes with the students’ ability to concentrate. It suggests that college authorities should provide entertainment that is not costly for students. It emphasizes the fact that well educated people are less likely to be a drain on society and so governments should support students to study. This Persuasive speech “Students should learn not earn” is one that ends with a short poem that emphasizes the persuasive nature of the speech.
