Omg, a cold blooded liberal.
I actually think it’s a good idea to let the kids know the real world using the gap year. Even if the anti-poverty program does not produce much results for the poor, it would provide extremely valuable learnings to the elitist 18 year old. It would humble the kid and open his eyes.
I think we should require every high school graduate to take 1-2 years to gain real world experience, make a living, or just get a real world social experiment like this anti poverty program.
Mormon church is doing this by requiring young men to go on a 2 year missionary trip. Are Mormons more mature, more successful and more responsible than the rest of the population?
