NC Dem Offers Forced Servitude to "Honor" Slain Students

What could possibly go wrong?

Students in North Carolina's private and public colleges would be required to mentor public school-age children to receive a bachelor's degree after 2012, under a bill filed this week.

Sen. Tony Rand, D-Cumberland, named the proposed community service program in memory of two college students who were shot to death earlier this year Eve Carson, the student body president at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Abhijit Mahato, a Duke University graduate student.

The bill would require any student seeking a bachelor's degree to spend 20 hours per semester mentoring and tutoring a public school-age child. The bill doesn't specify for how many semesters the mentoring would be required.

It makes perfect sense, doesn't it?

Two college students were murdered by street thugs who were drop-outs, so Rand's obvious reaction is to force more college students to spend time with failing students that come from similar environments as the killers.

If Rand wanted to actually do some good, perhaps he could get on board with organizations pushing for allowing CCH holders to carry on college campuses, instead of providing a victim delivery service.

CY - I think mentoring and tutoring are the wrong words. Indoctrinating would be a better description. Those children are future voters after all!

Also, how do you make this mandatory for students at private colleges in North Carolina as a degree requirement unless the college or student receives state aid?

As far as I know, most college students are dope smoking slackers that I wouldn't let near my child. Really, think about it, what the hell would a 20 year old have to offer as a mentor? Life experience? Wisdom? Tattoo advice?
