Graduation Shouldn’t Break Civil Rights

In Youth Rights on August 1, 2011 by edwinforyouthrights

The National Education Association believes that young women and young men should be forced to graduate until they are 21 years old. Because of this, the National Education Association is an organization which supports age discrimination. Using the age of 21 as a restriction is ageism because the real age of majority is 18. People who are 18 or older are not “kids.” Graduating from high school is important because many jobs require it. As well, many universities and colleges require a high diploma before enrolling for courses. However, saying that people must graduate or be forced to until they are 21 breaks the concept of civil rights. I know that progressives and conservatives are as equally likely to support discrimination against young people. I have added the NEA to the list of ageist organizations. Anyone who is 18 or older should be free to choose their educational or vocational goals for better or for worse. The NEA shouldn’t be trusted when it comes to graduation. I have gathered this fact about the NEA from a brochure I read from their website. Education is a benefit but what is more a benefit is how a person uses it. As well, experience is another benefit.
