I’m all for encouraging kids to experience the world… but 1) I highly suspect the kids who are going to have the support/funding/motivation to take the ideal gap year experience as prescribed are already the kids who will do well in school, and 2) how the F is an 18-year-old high-school graduate supposed to teach anyone anything, let alone a ridiculously complicated language? Their poor students. Ugh.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
