Grades 9-10 | Argumentative
Suppose that Congress is considering a plan to require all future U.S. high school graduates to spend one year in service to their country before college. These graduates could serve in the military, or they could participate in a civilian service program.
Write an editorial for your high school newspaper taking a position for or against the idea of mandatory service for high school graduates. Support your position with examples from current events, personal anecdotes, and other relevant sources.
