Community Service Before Graduation

September 13, 1992

We should applaud Laguna Beach for making community service a requirement for graduation from high schools. I believe the students will likely end up reaping more benefits than the community since their participation may well boost their self-esteem by discovering that they do have something to offer their community.

Perhaps we should go a step further by requiring all parents to be actively involved in their education process. Those who fail to comply may be compelled to pay a fee which would supplement our schools' dwindling budgets. Would it be nice if we can also add spelling and math to the requirement?
