Learning to drive is a privilege that I strongly believe teens should keep, and here is why. Driving is an extremely dangerous task, but if you teach people while their brains are still maturing, it makes the process simpler and safer. Learning at a young age to drive is much safer than learning when you are of an older age because your brain is still adaptable. You will be able to learn quicker because your growing mind haven't fully developed. That being the case, your brain is still malleable.
They are in favor of keeping the minimum driving age the same, suggesting parental involvement and stricter guidelines play a larger role. I am in favor of raising the minimum driving age because it will lower financial burdens, lower car crash rates, and allow more time for teenage brains to develop and mature. In order to promote safer driving conditions and lower vehicle crash rates, the minimum driving age for teenagers should be raised. Opposing Argument
I believe the voting age should be kept at 18. I do not believe lowering the age limit to 16 would increase voter particpation. Younger voters seem less interested in todays politics, which in turn, would mean a lesser turn out at the voting polls. Young people seem to be far more interested in everything besides politics nowadays. Todays youth are more interested in fashion, arts and entertainment, I feel like politics would be the last on their list of concerns.
It catches the reader’s attention and makes them interested in your topic. Through the examination of the quotation “You need to be your teens’ frontal lobes until their brains are fully wired” (J), we can conclude that parents aren’t literally going to be acting as their teen’s frontal lobes, but this is more effective than just saying “You need to make decisions for your teens.” This hyperbole helps Kolbert to communicate her message to the readers by over exaggerating her point. This will cause the potential reader to seriously doubt the mental capability of teenagers. Using an hyperbole will create more concern for readers who are parents and would be more likely to play an active parenting role.
So De la Rosa views this as a potential outlet for low income families not as a road block. So both authors believe that Hip hop has influence on culture but the views on those influence is different for both authors. In conclusion
From the time students reach junior high, they’re constantly told that they’re supposed to know what their plan is after high school. Many students who don’t have a plan, are constantly reminded that they need to have their whole life figured out before they graduate high school. In “College Pressures” by William Zinsser, the author brings the issues of education systems to light and the unintended stress being brought upon students as a result. Having a deeper insight into his students academic fears, Zinsser uses this to his advantage by connecting to his readers. To better articulate the pressures put onto students, the essay transitions into letters of hopeless students slipped under the dean’s door at 4 A.M. Students who have papers, assignments, and tests all due the next day are full of fear and anxiety that their grades won’t be what they’ve imagined.
In conclusion teenagers should be treated like adults since they want to take adult decisions. Smaller kids know the difference between good and bad so teens should to. The world will be such a better place without all these teens getting in trouble. Teenagers should be going to school instead of being in jail everyday.
Teenagers and children would have many different benefits if school started later, including better grades, better health and even less injuries/accidents. Parents would have to worry less and so would the teachers. All in all there are many reasons school should be starting
Having less of an education means they would not be able to determine whats best for the country. Being younger means that they would probably not care about elections. Second, if we lower the voting age it will instantly increase the number of voters. However, doing so will also decrease the percentage of people who will actually participate in elections.
I do not agree that Driving age should be risen because, the driving age is perfect where it is and teaches responsibility, It wouldn't change accident rate, And this would hurt the ability of teens whom have jobs to get to work. However there are people that do think that driving age should be increased to lower the likely hood of teen death in car crashes. Responsibility is a good thing to teach at an early age especially with driving. The age limit has always been sixteen without problem so why change it now. There are teens in the countryside that have been driving more complex machines than cars since they could put a foot on the peddle.
It is also no secret that younger teens will try to access alcohol in some way to look “cool”. One problem with lowering the drinking age, is it will allow alcohol to find its way onto school campuses faster than it does now. When younger students in high school and middle school see 18-year-olds drinking alcohol more frequently and openly because it is legal, the younger students will want to resemble the “mature” seniors and drink more as well. Since many times seniors are friends with younger students, they would be more willing to provide them with alcohol off campus. This would lead to a trickledown effect of younger and younger student consuming alcohol.
On the other hand, many people who want the voting age to remain the same claim that at age 16 or 17 there’s no burning issues to motivate or interest teenage voters. If the justification for lowering the voting age was to to boost voter turnout there was plenty of other solutions presented in the article. Shin states“Other possible changes include same-day registration, allowing paroled felons to vote, and giving candidates easier access to apartment buildings to campaign.” This only reinforces the importance of young voters to Council members because as stated in the article, “reports from Denmark suggest that younger teenagers are more likely to cast a ballot than slightly older peers.” At such a young age teenagers are taught to take action and strive towards creating a better future for themselves and starting at grassroots level with municipal elections in my opinion is the perfect way to start.
For instance, the use of censorship in public and media can be displayed a positive factors. Censorship is use to avoid corruption of younger generation and censoring anti-government contents can provide stability to the society. Certain topics can be exposed to young minds before they 're even old enough to understand. While the mass media can stir the emotion of the public about topics harder to comprehend. People believe the government purpose for this is to avoid losing the support of the people due to untrue or exaggerated accusations made by the anti-government groups without censorship are creates questions.
People with an education have a larger income, have a better chance of earning the respect of fellow citizens, and are more likely to get jobs. Knowledge is power, and many young people living in the Projects are intelligent and full of submerged potential, but they live in a place where it is an achievement just to graduate from high school. They have lost the hope that was alive and thriving during the life of their grandparents, when Martin Luther King was a beacon of hope. The children in the projects might have low expectations for their future, but holding on to hope and fierce determination is the only way they will leave their lives of poverty. Martin Luther King, Jr., emphasized, "I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream" (King Jr.).
