What defines peer pressure? To a regular teen, peer pressure is an overly used phrase, used by adults to explain their actions. To a Junior Reserve Officer Corps, or JROTC, cadet, peer pressure is an obstacle we overcome at the early stages of the program. By using our core abilities, each cadet learns the basics of being a better citizen in society. In those core abilities, cadets learn morals and are individualized from the teenage stereotype; something peer pressure plays a great role in.
It can be argued that a certain amount of conformity is required in order to be an active member of society. Source D makes that point, stating that “you cannot have a democratic- indeed, civilized- community life unless people have learned to participate in a disciplined way as a part of a group.” However, gaining the skills to behave in a group setting is not synonymous with the loss of individuality. In fact, individuality is a key part of living life beyond high school. The bell schedule in source B is a good example of how conformity can hinder the personal growth of students in public schools. Students attending the high school begin their day, every day, at exactly 8:16 am and are expected to attend “Period 1, Period 2, Period 3… etc.” until they end their day at 3:01.

Low income will mean that parents will be unable afford educational books or tutoring in order to help the student pass.

I do believe that although it would be a benefit for most eighteen year olds, it shouldn’t be the law to enroll. Some people might disagree with my thinking, stating, that it would if fact keep young people off the streets and teach them responsibility, but what if the eighteen year old was handicapped and couldn’t take physical and mental pressure? Would he be breaking the law? Also, unfortunately, some eighteen year olds today do not love their country and it would not be good if they were in the army. Do we want every eighteen year old in the army, fighting for our country?
It is inevitable to think that during this economy recession a four days school week could be a cost saving measure; however, it is a big mistake to take away one day of school since it will affects parents, child, staff and the country in many different ways. Gregory A Shmidt’s essay, “We Like the Four-Day Week”, explains how the switch to a four days schedule could be beneficial for the staff, students and budget savings. But, he didn’t mention how that system will affect parents’ pockets. U.S.A Today editorial board questions how reducing one day of school will be a saving if parents will be spending more on day care “what about the family cost of day care for a child home alone on a weekday?” (307). In fact, parents regularly work five days a week leaving their kids in school for those days.

Young adults should be given the opportunity to practice what they learn, such as being responsible for designing, organizing, and implementing their own conferences.

This fact, however, hasn’t met the expectation of formal education as presented in international reports, which use the word “children” almost worldwide, instead of “youth” and “young people”. Occasionally, the term “young adult” is used, but almost in reference to school drop-outs and illiteracy problem. It seems that we have overlooked the effects of youth education, which would highly possibly become enormous aftermath on an individual as well as a whole society. The governments are becoming more and more absorbed in, for instance, economic and military investments, rather than their educational systems. Thus, the budgets for the domain of education have been cut off in many countries, which results in dramatic losses in schools’ facilities, technology and extracurricular activities.
