For clarification, is it fair that a teenager, or any individual suffering from social anxiety be forced to present in a classroom/workplace?

I suppose it may be a good idea because I love the idea of debating but was never chosen and was always afraid to go up until my Dean forced me to do a presentation. I was scared as hell but it worked out in the end. I am still nervous but I guess it depends on the person. It might help the person, but then in some cases it might not.

@Tophatdoc, Yeah, that's exactly the kind of reason I was interested in this debate. I used to date a girl who would break down in tears at even the thought of presenting. It strikes me as unjust that it's necessary.

@Gomo, I would take on this topic. I used to suffer anxiety when I presented but not anymore. I think it depends on the severity of the social anxiety. I remember when I was in middle school one guy used to cry while giving presentations. He was petrified. I never had this happen but I always could feel my heart pounding fast.
