Homeschooling Essay

867 words - 4 pages

After reading the argumentative essays: “An Argument against the Anna Todd Jennings Scholarships,” and “All the Time? Forget It!,“ I thought both Matt Daniels and The Student respectively, provided all the elements for this particular genre of essays. I agree with Daniels’ view that applying for the Anna Todd Jennings Scholarships further perpetuates racist ideas and students should not apply for the scholarship; and The Student’s claim, that allowing twenty-four hour visitation would be a violation of the student’s privacy and sense of security.

At least, with prescribed hours, the residents will know when and when not to get fully relaxed and can plan accordingly.
Another excellent point she makes regarding twenty-four hour visitation is that, it makes it less secure. According to The Student, the doors would always be unlocked making the dorms accessible to people who do not belong there. She states, “These people might be anything from pranksters to criminals,” thus, putting the students at risk of being robbed or...
