National ServiceBook - 2011
This collection of essays examines both sides of the questions raised about national service programs. Across four chapters, readers will explore whether national service is necessary, what its social impact is, what role service learning should play in society, and what role the government should play in national service. Essay sources include George W. Bush, who states that national service improves communities, and Practical Homeschooling, which claims that mandatory service learning limits freedom of choice. By reading pro versus con viewpoints, readers benefit from a broad perspective, and will be able to develop their own informed, intelligent opinions.
