To me, school is a draft situation. No need to continue it.
It’s bad enough ppl gotta go through 12 years of school. There’s tons of opportunities to each “how to be a good citizen” in school. If they missed that opportunity, well then, they missed it didn’t they?
It’s the difference between choice and requirement though. To me, they had their chance in school. I see you’re in the Marines. I assume that was your free choice. To me, that’s the difference.
