The Thesis Statement

statement photoIn essay writing, the thesis statement defines the focal point of your essay, and the entire essay works to defend and support this point.

Here’s an example of a thesis statement on the topic “Education”:

The education system needs a complete overhaul if it is to succeed in the 21st century.

Sometimes, you may be asked to list reasons for your thesis statement.

Here are 3 reasons why I choose this thesis statement:

1. The proportion of school dropouts are steadily increasing.

2. A college degree is becoming more and more overrated.

3. The relevance of school curriculum to everyday life is rapidly and consistently diminishing.
