Volunteering and doing community service is has a requirement to graduate makes NO sense. It has nothing to do with education, and if it is required than it is not volunteering it seems like a dictatorship. For example most schools have sports and after school clubs but it isn't required to participate in any of those extra activities, if a school does require participation in sports and clubs then there will be a lot of arguments with the school board, but why not collages look at the sports you've played and you can get a sports scholarship. Collages do look at community service but most likely you won't get a scholarship for it. Then why on earth do most people think its a good idea, its not, it makes no sense. P.S most people commenting aren't students, I'm a student, this is has nothing to do with people who aren't students, teachers, or parents.
i couldn't agree more. i witness this "blurred vision" of the meaning of education and service in its early stages as a teacher and advisor in high school and, as the professor so adeptly emphasizes, it continues through college. we need to refocus on Truth, the intrinsic value of Spirit and the big picture of Life and our contributions in it, all of which have merit and value.
i am a senior this year and i just transfered to a new state. since i came late in the year, i am behind in my senior project. My new english teacher asked me what was required at my last school, so i explained that it was 20 hours of community service. I honestly enjnoyed particapating in it. It got me to reach out and interact with my community. this is a great idea, i believe it should be required, it will be more usefull in the future than what writing a 5+ page bibliography on something your never going to use..
if your best friend does something bad. Would you ever talk to he/her again? Maybe your (friend) doesn't really care about you, because if he/she does then they would belive you and not do this thing.
People should never be forced to do community service. But they should at least try it. It's not all about what you think but maybe a GOOD friend will help you out and not do something stupid.
i am in high school i say no no no no
yes i think community service should be reqiored to graduate
