A Conservative View Essay

458 words - 2 pages

On this project I'm going to take the part of a conservative. The issues are the smoking policy, the attendance policy, and community service for a graduation requirement. He following paragraphs will explain in greater detail what I feel about the 3 topics.The smoking policy. I believe that the smoking policy should be thrown away and there should not be smoking allowed on school grounds.

The attendance policy. I think the attendance policy as it stands is a good policy. It allows the kids ample time to get from class to class and provides a good punishment for those who don't follow the bell system. It's very important to have a set time for class to begin and for class to end. The children's parents pay for them to go to school and they should be required to report to every class, and if they choose not to go there should be swift harsh punishment. As for the punishment part of the policy, that could use a little revising. I don't feel that its necessary to tell the children that they are half way or give them any warning, just tell them when they've lost credit. It's their choice to skip class so why should we tell them that they are half way.Community service as a graduation requirement. I don't think that community service is at all a need. If the children want to help that's great but if the children don't want to help that is there choice. What about the physically & mentally challenged? Does this mean they wont be able to graduate? That could be damaging to a child's mind. If they wanted to get children to do community service they could make it count for college credit or offer something else that would make a kid want to help out.
