In the reading In re Gault, it was determined the minor Gault violated a law and state ordinance by the judge when he was taken to court. The judge, McGhee, said that he had violated “ARS 8-201-6 (a), which specifies that a "delinquent child" includes one ‘who has violated a law of the state or an ordinance or regulation of a political subdivision thereof.’ The law which Gerald was found to have violated is ARS 13-377. This section of the Arizona Criminal Code provides that a person who "in the presence or hearing of any woman or child . . . uses vulgar, abusive or obscene language, is guilty of a misdemeanor. . . ." In my own opinion I do not believe that Gault had committed such a crime that deserved the kind of punishment he was sentenced. He was sentenced to spend the length of his minority, until 21, in a State Industrial School.
Gist Statement: “Serve or Fail”, a text written by Dave Eggers, published in the New York Times in 2004, argues that colleges should consider establishing a volunteer service requirement for students to graduate.
Community service is something that gives many people joy and gives them a purpose. “In bestowing charity, the main consideration should be to help those who will help themselves” (Source 2). This year I joined a school club called iCare. It’s a club that helps and plans different events and fundraisers at the school to benefit people who are less fortunate “since the world’s resources are dwindling”(Source 3). I have been able to help plan school events and even deliver special treats to volunteers who help people in need. Since joining this club I definitely feel more involved in my school and New York City community. By giving back to those who deserve it gives my life purpose and personally makes me
When the topic of volunteering would be mentioned upon me and my peers, we would most likely change the subject or disperse. Volunteering is something that is rising in our generation, yet is hidden in the shadows at the same time. In Kent Ansen’s essay, “Should the United States Establish Mandatory Public Service for Young Adults?” the author tells the audience why public service should be mandatory. I believe that volunteering is an amazing subject that comes with unbelievable benefits to the person and the environment that is affected by the, but at the same time, should not be mandatory for everyone.
Community service is another important responsibility to our country. By being active in our community, we show our support to our neighbors and our community. In community service, we can also work to improve our community in various ways. When people and organizations begin to better their communities, they begin to better our nation. By improving one community, a person can influence others to better their own communities. Community service can spread across the nation to better all
Would schools be overstepping their boundaries by requiring community service hours? While parents and civic leaders feel that volunteering strengthens bonds between school and the community, high schools should not require community service hours for graduation because it will interfere with more important priorities that students have, students are busy and stressed enough with school and jobs, and schools should not interfere with students involvement in the community.
Yet, I do agree with the National service idea I do have A problem with violating someone 's free will to express their own rights and once if they do not choose to participate in this type of service or training even though it could benefit their country and themselves in the long run. Even though people that fall in this category have other options and forms of education that could be just as helpful to their country without participating in a national service. Not everyone is fit for this type of joint service for basic factors of maybe Low skill quality ,Anxiety, depression, or just any motional demand for that type of job could bring physical and mental stress to people that are pursuing that type of
Teenagers who drop out of high school or not finish the university have trouble finding a job. the vast majority of kids will lead to extreme poverty, homelessness and a drug problem that has left some neighborhoods and community desolate and dangerous.
Recently, the Navy, Air Force and Army have all fallen short of their personnel enlistment goals. With its current size, our military would allow the nation to enter and win only two regional conflicts at the same time. Regrettably, this is not enough. The Navy had 7,000 fewer volunteers than were required to meet its quota for new recruits. The Air Force lacked 2,000 pilots in 2003. Our voluntary armed forces system is in crisis. The supply of available young people is shrinking. In 1980 there were more than 17 million 17- to 20-year-olds. Currently, there are fewer than 10 to 12 million in this age group. This reduction in the number of available youth and the shrinking number of new recruits should serve as a wake up call that mandatory military service should be a requirement if we hope to have a safe and secure
I believe high schoolers should do 15 hours of community service to graduate. In fact, I think 15 hours should be the minimum! It is very important that a prospective graduate experiences the discipline required for community service. It help prepare them for the real world, the world outside of school.
“A recent Harris Poll finds that over half of adults (59%) agree that some sort of public service should be required of Americans, whether at the community, state, or national level” (Pollack). There is an extraordinary amount of work to be done in our country, but only a select few contribute. If more people were to participate, there would be less tasks to complete individually along with healthier lifestyles. Public service provides a better environment as a whole. Everyone is able to enjoy the surroundings. Therefore, everyone should be expected to provide a helping hand in order to better the surroundings.
Volunteering should be done intrinsically. Many students find community service so difficult, time consuming, and not enjoyable. Therefore, they tend to only complete the required hours without any essential effort. To call mandatory community service 'volunteering ' is a problem because then we begin to confuse the distinction between an activity that is willingly done and something that is obligatory and perhaps not always rewarding. Volunteering should be something you choose to do because you want to do it, not because somebody made you do it. Moreover, they may want to participate in other activities that they will enjoy doing. Students should be able to enjoy their life outside; not spending huge amount of it to
While studies have shown that volunteering has positive health benefits, such as reduced stress and lower blood pressure, none of these studies were conducted on forced participants. Having someone perform tasks in an environment they didn 't choose, could potentially increase stress levels greatly. Additionally, many individuals would require training to perform their work, in order to avoid injury to themselves or others due to inexperience.
The number of volunteers in America increases immencly every year, it is becoming a trend that greatly benefits our country. Mandatory service is not only unconstitutional but unecessary. With all the various programs out there that make volunteering fun and easily accessable, mandatory service is not something that needs to be enforced. Forced service should not be used in America because it's unconstitutional, volunteering should come from the heart, and the government shouldnot have to pay people for something that millions of people already do for free.
About 63 million Americans volunteer each year, and excess of 300 billion dollars are donated each year. Americans on their own see the good in giving and volunteering their time and/or money. I feel like knowing you are forced to do a service most people aren 't going to want to do is going to create a lot of emotional problems such as depression or anxiety, suicide would be a factor too. Volunteering time is something people like to do because of how the rewards feel. I feel like we would create a lot more problems than we need or can handle as citizens and a country by forming a mandatory service
