A BAD IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS GONE

An alarming majority of Ontario Grade 12 students have not performed the 40 hours of volunteer work they need to graduate this year, schools say — an oversight that could cost them their high school diploma.

I really dislike this involuntary “volunteerism.” This story is out of Canada so I don’t know about their laws but I’d bet we would have all sorts of interesting federal lawsuits (13th Amendment anyone?), if a student were denied a diploma for lack of “volunteering.”
