Right or Wrong

By Harper M.
North Carolina, Age 11

For previous years colleges have been handing out expensive gifts to their students and freshmans. Or adding on uneccessary convienences for there students; like, a hot tub with a juice bar. This may be splendid and convienant to the teachers and students but costly and takes away the affect of a educational college. Duke for example, handed out ipods to all there freshmans, not a school neccessity obviously. They also persuaded news people that it helps and is convienant for school and school work etc. These favors should be band from schools to stop studnets from flunking. A lot of the world has only a high school diploma if any diploma, let's not encourage the young adults of America that life's a party.
