To All,



Councilman Gioia from Queens proposes that High School students be required to do community service to graduate. (See article below)



Many schools already do this and it is not a bad idea.



What should also be done is that students who do community service should be offered discounts or additional aid for NY City and State Colleges.



Levels of achievement should be set up with the awards based on reaching total hour plateaus.



To fund this program the state should stop paying advertising costs for the Lottery.



The money that is currently allocated to the advertisement budget could be used to fund this program.



Instead of trying to entice students and other people who cannot afford it with gambling we would be enticing them with a more affordable college education.



Now that is a more realistic dream



Dennis
