In 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.
