Do you think high school students should have to participate in an interview, community service and get three character references to graduate, as they do in Newton?

“I think that it would be beneficial to them to give them some real world experience. I think it can only benefit them.”
“Yes, I would say that sounds good. I think it would be good for the community, and maybe some of the kids would continue to give back to the community.”
“I don’t think so. We haven’t done it in the past. Why add stress into their lives? They have enough as it is.”
“I don’t think so. They’re not interviewing for a job. Character is something you learn from your parents or from life experience. It’s not part of the educational curriculum.”
