More On Senior Thesis

“No thesis statement should be approved which merely calls for the government to make a new law or spend more money. Assuming the audience of a senior thesis is the high school student body, the only thesis statements that should be approved are those which an audience of high school students can personally, immediately respond to. Likewise, arguing that high schoolers should vote for political candidates in the future who will throw money at a certain cause should likewise be banned. Unfortunately, American politics now centers around the idea that other people should pay for things that I want and allowing students to make such arguments in front of their peers only perpetuates this problem.”
