Private college prep schools should require service hours for transcripts.
Debate Rounds (2)
Many students that attend private high schools are from households that can afford for their child to not have an after school job. However, there are those students, those scholarships or on their family's 'last dollar', that work in their free time. Should those students be required to choose between studying and service for their diploma.
A mandate requiring service can have similar consequences to the No Child Left Behind act in that communities, such as those in very rural areas, are left with few options.
Private institutions have the ability to work as they see fit for their community and students without, for the most part, catering to a list of requirements from an external body. This freedom allows the school administration to decide what the students in their community would benefit from most.
The idea of a community service requirement for students is a good one, however, mandating private institutions to enforce such a requirement could be detrimental to the very students it is meant to help.
