Trade Community Service For Education or Debt Relief?
After serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA member for over two years, I wonder: have any other government departments or agencies considered a “trade community service for education or debt relief” model for accomplishing the tasks it’s set up to do? Why or why not? If so, are there other models that exist? Where? How?
Also, has anyone else thought it odd that “community service” is either seen as an altruistic act or a punishment? What else might community service be?
