A Gap Year is usually a year between High School and College, I am writing a research paper to see the opinions, of pro and con, or both. You may also explain other details, like whether it should be legal, or illegal, or be an option through school. Lets be fair, honest, and truthful. Thank You for responding
I will be taking the con side of this discussion because I believe that gap years are a bad idea, however they are NOT something you should make illegal. Making the gap an illegal decision would be against the foundation of this country's values, and is just too much trouble to enforce. Gap years are a bad idea to most students because they show colleges you are not actually interested in going to college and they should give your spot (or scholarship) to someone else. they also give you lots of time to forget the things you learned in high school, making college much harder than it needs to be.
