"The Obama Administration will call on Americans to serve in order to meet the nations challenges. President-Elect Obama will expand national service programs like AmeriCorps and Peace Corps and will create a new Classroom Corps to help teachers in underserved schools, as well as a new Health Corps, Clean Energy Corps, and Veterans Corps. Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year. Obama will encourage retiring Americans to serve by improving programs available for individuals over age 55, while at the same time promoting youth programs such as Youth Build and Head Start."
Doesn't this violate the 13th amendment?
All our children are to be forced to be community organizers. Like Hell.
We have the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, churches, etc.
Can we please put PRAYER back in the schools first? Not mandatory service to government.
ok, that too.
Whatever it is, conservatives should create and provide their own legally qualified alternative "community service" organizations as a way for students to avoid the left's indoctrination camps.
Well, err, ahhh, uhhh, what do you think the internal security force the size of defense is all about. It’s the new Gestapo.
And what if you don’t want your child to be apart of this crap?
yeah, so the corporations won’t have to pay people now? wow, how many hours is the arrogant president-elect going to volunteer?
That became a requirement a few years ago in Ontario. All high school students had to have 40 volunteer hours in order to graduate. Didn’t amount to much....you could get them fairly easily and, as usual, kids found a way around it.
i agree but these people just dont get it
My kids had to work in HS to afford cars and insurance. They don’t have time for feel good BS.
You really wanna know?
LOL! While it may have been easy to bamboozle the kids into voting for “cool” barack, it will be whole different story to get them to do compulsory community service. They will drop him like a hot potato if he interrupts their partying and good times.
I will be laughing my head off when BO actually proposes legislation for compulsory commuity service.....all those young idiots who voted for him now having to pay with their blood sweat and tears......
Can anyone verify if this website is real? It could be a scam. I would hate to get burned by citing it.
Not with my kids. Not with my grand kids.
No way. No how. Not now. Not ever.
It's going to be a long 4 years, folk.
“Doesn’t this violate the 13th amendment?”
If it is not voluntary, yes.
$hit, that harsher than some sentences Judges are handing out.
He can kiss my lilly white a$$.
I'm guessing it's going to be a combination of attending political indoctrination sessions and doing yard work for campaign donors.
By withholding gov't grant money to students and the school itself.
Makes a lot more sense to require “community service” from welfare queens and chronically unemployed instead of imposing on kids busting their tails and working part-time jobs to get through school. I don’t think I’m going to like Obamunism at all.
