An excellent idea.

I think that just builds resentment. Kids will do it to graduate but a good chunk on principle wont' do it again because they were forced to.

Community service should be voluntary. Kids will associate it with people on parole/prohabition doing community service to get a lighter sentence.

Maybe some kids will be forced to try it and like it. But overall, while well intentioned, bad idea.

While it is an excellent idea, what is being left out of the student's education in order to add this requirement?
