Is this type of volunteering really expected to inspire young adults? Levine’s article quotes Paul Light, who argues, “Young Americans want the chance to make a difference and learn new skills, not work in the back office stuffing envelopes” (640). If students are forced to complete jobs which are busy work, they are not going to be inspired. In fact, the curriculum might backfire and cause students to look upon volunteerism with dismay. The lack of organization, effectiveness, and educational opportunities illustrates that mandatory public service is a flawed
This new grading scale is more to a help at raising scoring and funding than allowing students to learn the information in a way that will be reliable in the future. The no zero grading policy may allow students to pass, it may even encourage them to continue to stay in school, but it is not helping the children to be successful in society. Are colleges excepting this new grading scale? As most colleges except a new student for their grades and work ethics. With this policy schools are only motivating students to come to school for the knowledge that they will pass.
No matter who you are, it is safe to assume that everyone would agree helping their community is an important thing. Society does not run without people who are willing to help one another and put other people before themselves. However, a big factor of volunteer work is that it should be, in fact, voluntary. The idea of this school adopting a policy that would require all students to complete 100 hours of community service before graduation sounds like a good idea at first glance, but careful thought reveals that this may not be the best way to get high school students involved in their community. Forcing students to complete community service hours is not a good idea because it can negatively impact their health, it creates a pattern of episodic

It always praises them even though they do something wrong and use only positive words to avoid hurting them. However, this is wrong because they could have reached maximum efficiency by teaching them to be more independent and help them to find the way to improve their talents. Students do not know about the real society and the real working environment and even their college life because simply school does not give chances to learn about them.
. For whatever reason students may not want to go to college — lack of resources, family issues, work — the measure would reduce the reasons not to focus, study and complete high school at their highest potential.” In other words she believes that no one’s potential should be held off for financial reasons. With the proposal if passed it will give students motivation to continue their education and there
College teaches students responsibly, independence and many more life skills that they need to know in the adult world. They learn to work hard for want they want in life; the easier it comes, the easier it goes. If college is going to be free, most students will not appreciate it as much as if they worked for it for their selves. College should not be a free program that careless and irresponsible students can take advantage of. Thinking about making college free for students for everyone’s lives to be easier?
While people love to learn and to raise awareness, awareness is not equivalent to solving any problem. Raising awareness gives the participant and observer the feeling of helping without actually creating a change at all. A campaign’s success should be determined not on how many people attended a particular event, but the number of people who actually decide to take a meaningful action. In my opinion as a participant, College of San Mateo’s Human Right’s Day effectively promoted awareness, but it was not enough to create change because both participants and audiences were not internally motivated to learn, but instead was driven externally. One of the ways students promoted Human Rights Day was through creating posters and presenting them to the audience.
This has led to commercialization and/or corporatization of education. The argument is strong but it just considers the fact about job losses associated without commercialization. The argument about why commercialization or running colleges like corporates should not be done is asserted by giving us these following arguments. According to the author, If teachers are asked to change their attitude to treat students like customers- which essentially means following the golden selling rule that customer is always right, then instructors will have to work in order to make his student’s life better. The author feels that a change in attitude by either teachers or students will result in decrease in quality of ed... ... middle of paper ... ...ument.
No one forces them to do it, and it only changes their education and future, no one else’s. It’s not for everyone, which is why it is just an option that’s out there for those who need the challenge. This is by no means a huge advantage that is being handed to only a select few. It’s hard work that students choose to do to challenge themselves and make themselves work harder. So, who doesn’t want a good college application?
How imperative is it that one pursues a traditional college experience? Although it might appear that Charles Murray and Liz Addison are in agreement that the traditional college experience is not necessary for everyone, Addison provides a more convincing argument that higher education is necessary in some form. This is seen through Addison’s arguments that college is essential to growing up, that education is proportional to the life one lives, and that community college reinvents the traditional college experience. Not only does Addison have her own opinions about college, but Murray does as well. Murray believes that students should receive a liberal education, yet they should not have to wait until college to do so (Murray 225).
