                  From what I read in the article, it sounds dumb! (for 16y. old)

                  Introduce it as a school option and let the kids decide. The lack of civic programs should be addressed, and these programs should be encouraged. But making them mandatory is dumb and will probably backfire.

                  The initiative smells of political BS.
